One of my good friends is battling eczema with her 6 month old, solely breastfeeding child. For anyone who has suffered from this, or had a child who suffered from it, you know how hard it can be to both cure and function with. My friend has tried different dietary measures, such as taking out dairy, gluten and soy, but her little babe keeps getting worse and is quite uncomfortable.
Different homemade lotions and such have been somewhat helpful in the past (she makes a lotion bar similar to Madeon: Lotion Bars, which many have found very helpful for this skin condition), but at this point she really needs to address the root issue. And to do that she needs to find out what that root issue is!
From my own personal reading, I know that many find relief after healing their gut on a diet, like the Body Ecology Diet, or the GAPS diet. But since I haven’t personally dealt much with this issue, I feel like I am very limited in what I can recommend. But I know that many of you have dealt with this condition with success and I am hoping you have suggestions to offer.
Would you be willing to share what has helped you and what hasn’t? We would love to hear anything and everything that you think would be helpful. Thanks in advance!
