View Full Version : Something I'm eating?
My BF 4 1/2 month old DD has developed a rash over her chest and shoulders. I suspect it is something that is in my diet. What types of foods trigger eczema and rashes and how would you suggest I go about reviewing my diet to try and eliminate the food source?
Could be druel, could be because she's teething. Just keep her skin clean, and pile on the sorbelene cream, or QV kids balm, it acts as a bit of a barrier. Or you might have to put bibs on her for a while to keep the druel away, thats if it is because of druel of course :o
Otherwise, strawberries can cause a rash, Noah reacts to peas, eggs, but it's such an individual things. If it is something you are eating Em could be intollerent to anything.
My DS had something similar, on his shoulders, arms, belly and legs. I cut out pretty much all sugar from my diet and it cleared up within a week. As soon as I started eating choccies etc again a couple of months later the rash came back.
My DD started to get servere eczema when she was a few weeks old. She was fully breast fed. We had her allergy tested and it came back that she was allergic to eggs and reacting to egg proteins that were coming through my milk. I cut out eggs from my diet and her eczema improved but didnt totally disappear.
Not sure if this will help at all but my ex had eczema and it would always get worse when he had alot of dairy, especially cheese products.
Hope you feel better soon! :fingerscrossed:
Hey thanks for your replies guys.
Emma, yeah I too thought it was drool because of her blastard tooth, but then again she has been bibed every waking hour now for 2 weeks:detective:
I have today started a total eliminate, reintroduce diet. I have decided to cut out all the obvious triggers (many of them known family allergies I had forgotten about), Dairy, Wheat, Eggs, Peanuts etc. I have also washed all her bedding in a sensitive detergent, just in case.:yes: :thumbsup:
BTW Shilo, your Bubs due on my Birthday:smiliedance:
My baby has eczema too, when breastfeeding I went on a totaly dairy free diet and it helped immensely. A good moisturiser can help as well. If you keep the skin supple there the flareups may not be soo bad! My LO has a milk, soya and egg allergy! Could be worth having an allergy test done so you know what to avoid. But seeing as you already have allergies in the family it's probably another good reason to have it done!
Good luck with it!
