Just started solids for my DD over the weekend with cereal. Realised only 3 days later that I bought the wrong cereal which contains wheat!!
It started after 1st day I noticed her eczema flared up on the sides of her cheeks near the ears (pimply looking) as well as above her mouth and under her chin so I applied steroid cream thinking it was a normal flare up. I kept giving the cereal to her for another 2 days and realised that the flared up areas were getting worse even after applying steroid cream (sigmacort). I started to realise that it might be food allergy. I have now stopped giving her the cereal for 2 days now but her skin still not looking much better (not worse) and still continuing with the steroid cream.
Has anyone experienced this? How long does it normally take for the skin to recover after an allergic reaction?
I am only giving her pumpkin and breastmilk at this stage.
