My second baby has had pretty bad eczema on her face neck and body for about 6 months now ( she is 8 months) we have been managing it a lil with the steroid based creams and mainly by putting her in those suits with pockets over her hands so she cant scratch . Drives her crazy but definitely helps. Anyhow i have done a lot of swapping of detergents and foods with no success. I currently use Karicare aptimil formula which has not changed since birth and my doc is adament about me trying rice milk instead. What are peoples experiences here? Because my basic understanding of rice milk is that it may help eczema but it lacks the vitamins and nutrients for growth and development at this age and shouldnt be swapped so im hesitant to say the least !
Just wondering if anyone elses doctor has advised this?
