    Thanks, she is 13 months now, i showed the dr 2 weeks ago and it wasn't to bad at that time 2 patches that needed that strong cream LOL can't remember what it's called, but he wasn't worried about it, today i would say it's at it's worst that i've seen on her, i'll look into seeing someone else as it is annoying her and seems to be getting worse. Might even go to my gp tomorrow and see if he can refer me to someone.

Her eczema wasn't severe but constant and covered her entire body when I was BFing (cows milk was coming through my milk). After trying formula once (not knowing about her allergy) she was covered in hives and eczema and went into anaphylactic shock. I stopped eating and drinking any dairy after that and within two weeks her skin had completely cleared. She is on soy formula now. Strawberries, citrus, even tomatoes can flare her up a little. I use QV, moisturise etc but honestly the only thing that controls her eczema is her diet. I agree with babyla don't be afraid to use steroid creams, we use Advantan. We had an episode a few weeks ago when DD caught a virus which for some weird reason triggered discoid eczema all over her body. It became infected so they treated with oral cortisone and antibiotics. I was using Advantan three times a day just to control it, but it didn't completely go until the infection had gone and she shook the virus. I know some kids (like my nephew) have mild eczema and respond well to being treated with occasional creams, moisturing, not over heating, only cool cotton fabrics etc, but DDs is really affected and kind of driven by her immune system and allergies. Definitely I would go and see a paed and have allergy testing done. I've heard of allergies not showing up in the prick testing but DDs did - strong reactions to dairy and cats. Sorry for the long winded story. HTH
    Thanks so much, long is fine every one i've spoken to (face to face LOL) doesn't seem to have done any research on their kids eczema and just uses creams etc and look at me crazy when i mention strawberries and milk etc i knew bub hub would have something for me I'm really interested to cut out cows milk and see if that stops it

    I would definitely try cutting it out - oat milk is a good option, as is soy. DD is fine on soy but many babies who can't tolerate dairy also can't tolerate soy. DD will stay on soy formula until 2 as instructed by paed just to make sure she's getting everything she needs whilst we find our way with her dairy free diet!
    I was only saying to DD's GP the other day that I don't believe she has 'eczema-y skin' as such. When she hasn't been In contact with any triggers and she's not sick or teething, her skin is beautiful and clear, eczema free. Sorry I can't see previous posts - did you say that colds etc trigger the eczema?

    My ds also had cmpi as well as allergy to soy, gluten, wheat and eggs. I had to cut all of them out of my diet while BFing and even traces were enough to cause a flare up. Ds used to get reflux, blood in stools and eczema. Once we cut everything out, he was fine. We had to do the elimination diet and slowly introduce foods to see if there was a reaction. Our allergy specialist advised us not to try strawberries, kiwi fruit or nuts until at least 2 yrs old as they were known "allergy" foods. Ds is 4 now and has grown out of most of his allergies.

    My dd's skin was perfect too until i stopped breastfeeding, if only i had of known i would of kept going for longer. No didn't mention colds that was someone else. stupid question but where do you get oat milk, is it in the milk section? lol that sounds stupid but saves me heading out only to realise i have no idea thinking it wouldn't hurt to try it and see what happens because no doubt i won't be able to get into a pead for a while

    Thanks, it's good to hear that most allergies have been outgrown Will definately be staying away from strawberries etc for a while now and see how we go although she hasn't had any of that sort of stuff in the last weekish or there abouts, i can only put it down to milk now as that's when it all seemed to start
