    Well, of course such selfish behaviour warrants punishment. I just got up to see DS had poo everywhere - down his legs, on his hands, on the teat of his bottle *shudder*, on his sheets and on the ****ing wall. So I cried and told him I hate him. I went and cleaned him up and put a load of washing on, then looked and realised I had poo all over my pants and my machine is one of those stupid ones that you can't open after it's started.

    So I'm sitting in the kitchen in my knickers crying and seriously contemplating getting a taxi to Woolies and starting smoking again. I think Sugar Free September has just officially gone down the drain.
    Hugs harvs. I hope the day improves.

    Poor you!! You sound exhausted & pushed to your limit. Be kind to yourself, we all have these moments, thankfully they don't last forever.

    I'm sure you already do but watch what is eaten and drunk.
    My mother getting really bad eczema and I went grocery shipping with her one day.
    The juice and peanut butter she purchased had additives that can cause skin issues in those that are prone to it

    Yep his diet is what we are monitoring, which is one of the reasons behind him not wanting to treat the flare up (apart from the nasty steroids that apparently alter your DNA), anyway, blah blah blah not to bore you but yes, totally agree that diet is a factor.

    So we can't get into the doctors for 3 weeks, so I have been to the chemist and bought some moo goo antihistamine stuff and will see how that goes tonight, and he is in an oaty bath now too.

    I have also bought and eaten some chocolate because @btmac told me to :-p and one should never underestimate the cleansing power of a shower (no pun), even if said shower doesn't have any water pressure and is scalding hot even with the cold water tap on full :-)

    I've done some soul searching and will try to find and reconnect with that feisty thing that once lived inside me and just do what I think is best for DS and cop any flak that comes my way.

    Thanks again everyone for all of the ideas and support x

    Omg i just read this. I just want to give you a big hug. Honestly you need to do what you think is best and if that means steroids then that's what you do. I can't believe he is letting his anxiety dictate his sons health. But that's another thread..

    I agree with coconut oil and it possibly being diet related. I hope he gets some relief. It must be so painful.

    How often does you DS get eczema @harvs?

    Often eczema is not related to allergies or diet, it's a gene. My DS has this kind. The ONLY thing that works for us after 2 years of everything is following our eczema specialist peadiatricians program. Steroid creams are necessary, without them scratching breaks the skin, causes scarring and staph infections. We now do bleach baths twice a week minimum, steroid cream and qv, his skin has improved out if sight.

    Eczema itch at night is horrific and causes sleep problems so during a flare up we use phenergan.

    I hope your boy improves soon.
