Hi Anon,
I can understand your pain and feeling. We had the same trouble. My beautiful baby boy was born a perfectly healthy baby. As a working mother, I had a perfect plan for him: breastfeeding/formula supplementation for 6 months, food introduction at 4-6 months, and then traditional milk and so on, and I stuck to that plan.

As you know Mom is quit job and flourishing career to manage son’s severely worsening eczema, keeping him at home full time, attending multiple doctor appointments, getting blood work done on various diseases, cooking allergy friendly foods and changing our lifestyle to a hypoallergenic one — read, read, read, track, track, track, stress, stress, and more stress.

My son’s food allergies, eczema, and intolerance journey had been a lengthy one. However, in the process, I’ve learned new, simple, and eczema friendly recipes. Approx. 35 percent of the eczema patients experience eczema flare-up when they eat. Try including foods rich in zinc and proteins as these are much more important for eczema sufferers.

Finally I found enough time, had enough insight into the condition, and knowledge from reading research papers and studies to start sharing my experience. Now I am also runing blog with name of (eczemaliving.com) This is blog an outcome of my experience in managing my son’s severe eczema, food allergies, asthma, along awesome allergy free-recipes, latest research and treatment plans that worked for us.

PLEASE consult with your doctor before making any changes to your son diet or medications. This is an outcome of my experience in managing my son’s severe eczema, food allergies, asthma,

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for reaching out to us. I'm sorry your son is going through this.

This is something you need to speak to your son's doctor about. If you feel you need a second opinion from another doctor, you should do so. Most doctors will (or should) understand the need for a parent to do this. Otherwise, your doctor is the one to talk to about why your son is not getting better and what else can be done.

Keep us updated.
