  • Have you looked into the possibility of a dairy allergy?

  • If the eczema is caused by dairy...then the dairy is most likely going to cause a lot of other problems as well. That includes anything with cow milk, casein, whey, any other milk products. Luckily there are lots of great alternatives like soy, hemp, rice, and many others. OP you can google milk allergy and see if your kiddo has any of the other symptoms.

  • My baby is on breast milk and formula. I think it is the formula too now when i think about it because his face was fine and then the eczema started.
