eczema and also a nut allergy...
My son has a nut allergy whcih I have had confirmed by blood tests but I am still waiting to see the immunoligist to confirm the severity of the allergy. My family have been eating nuts and using peanuts in cooking and he didnt have a reaction so its probably a mild allergy..however..I have now taken every item of food and beauty with a trace of nuts of any kind out of my house. I want to be safe not sorry before he gets tested.
The immunoligist will also confirm weither the nut allergy effets his eczema.
Now the eczema. This came around 4 months old. I do not give him any dairy because this did cause the eczema to flair. all other foods we have introduced so far (tomatoes,banana,mango etc) have not caused a flair. I bath him every few days as per peadiatricians advice and this has helped massively. He has oatmeal baths. I use Burty Bee baby shampoo in his hair and their soap on the rare occasion that its needed.
He has 50/50 and diprobase creams for his skin and although they do help they are not perfect.
He wears a scratchsleeve when I am not with him and when he sleeps. and when I change his bottom.
So i think thst all of it! oh I use fair non bio for our clothes etc.
Please offer up all advice on what I can do to make my boy more comfortable and less itchy!!
thanks very much for reading!
can i finally ask that if you have something negative to say about any of the above I would rather not hear it. I am only after assitance not criticism thank you
