    Default Eczema

    Hi ladies

    I suspect that DD is getting eczema from cow’s milk. I also have a history of this.

    What milk alternative can i use as she loves milk in her porridge and loves cheese etc etc.

    Or any other advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    I drink Zymil, I also get Aldi lactose free milk when I go there, but didn't find it helps with my Eczema.

    Thanks @Mason98 even though i get it myself when i go overboard with dairy, funnily enough i dont know the reason why it flares up my eczema, so maybe i have some research to do.

    Is it the lactose in the milk do you know?

    I find if I don't drink enough water it gets much worse. Also if I don't change clothes often enough on hot days my sweat makes it flare up, but in summer I wear as little as possible at home.
    My son gets really bad nappy rash if he wears undies or nappies for too long every day I find naked time helps him and also mum suggest Epsom salt baths I find that helps him too.

    DD has allergies to a few things. There are heaps of dairy substitutes now. We use vitasoy almond milk. It isn't a calcium substitute but it's the only one I can stomach as well. I'm bfing and don't want to buy 3 types of milk.

    I haven't been game to try a cheese alternative but the coconut yoghurts are quite nice and most don't have added sugar. Just be aware that there is dairy in things you wouldn't even think of. Some brands of things have dairy and others don't. I was astonished to find it in bread crumbs so if you decide to go totally dairy free you'll need to check labels.

    Good luck.
