eczema and food allergies/intoleranceHi, My baby boy is now 9 months old. He got atopic eczema, which is mainly related to food allergies and food intolerance. It all started when I was 29 weeks pregnant and had Anti- D injection, because I was rhesus ve. With in weeks on having injection I had itchy rashes all over my tummy. Got liver test done which came out normal. After my second dose of Anti-D. the condition got worse. I had rashes and small red very itchy patches on my tummy and itching on entire body. It all got over with in days after my boy was born. Normal delivery weight 3kgs.
When my baby was two weeks old he got rashes and dry on his entire body. Dr. said he got eczema. Used aqueous cream, oilatum. Then he had severe cradle cap. Which got cleared by 12 weeks. He developed dark hard black patch on back of his legs. We applied coconut oil and olive oil but didnt cleared he still got it. I even used hydrocortisone cream but no use.
On vacation to India I gave him homeopathy medication. Stated with 3 dose of Rhustox 30 on 10 Feb. One dose on 3rd mar. and Rhustox 1M on 10 Mar. well instead of improving his condition got worse after all these dosage skin cracked open and water started oozing out of it. Mainly on his cheeks joints on both hands and entire both legs. Gave him belladonna 200 on 19 mar. Not much improvement. He would scratch till he bleeds; he skin was very dry and peels off, develop. After three months of suffering he got little relief after 20 day of giving him sulphur 30.
After coming back to UK we realised he had lost lots of weight. 5ks at 6 months. I exclusive breastfeed him till 6 months. He got anaphylaxis reaction to formula milk. He is put on special amino acid formula milk Neocate. I was asked to stop breastfeeding. Now we realised he is a very allergic boy and got lots of food intolerance. He is allergic to milk protein, Soya, wheat, oat, egg, peanut. Intolerant to sweet potato, mango, broccoli, cauliflower,. His skin improving after elimination of milk and he weight 7.5kg now. But he is till very itchy and got rashes and dry patches with weeps water at time. He is a very active boy. I use steroid based creams emovate and epaderm to moisturise his skin. As my NHS Dr dont believe in homeopathy and says if I want to see my son alive I need to follow their instructions.
I want to know if there is any permanent cure in homeopathy for his condition. And has anti-d anything to do with all this. We got no family history for eczema or food allergies. Please help cant see my son suffer in silence..

However this is not easy -- I am assuming that you have NOT had ANY vaccinations -- if you have then that may be the root of the problem.
Otherwise there are three remedies that may help.

thanks everybody for the reply. My son is now 2 1/2 year old. We are doing great. I still don't know what caused his allergies. But only thing that helped us was to avoid anythign and everything that would cause him problem, that was in my hands. I kept a detailed dairy, of what he did and ate every day, and its reactions. and yes i did used the steroid creams my Dr. gave from now as i needed then, also priton for minor itching and reaction. but apart from that I stoped all medication. I guess as they say time is the biggest healer, it is healing my son.
Thanks for you support. If I can be of any help do write to me.
