Hi everyone,

I have an 11 mth old daughter who has eczema on the backs of her legs and is starting to get some around her mouth and it seems to have flared up more in the past 2 weeks. We started using cows milk about 4 weeks ago mixing it with formula then weaning her straight to cows milk and I have been reading online that this may be a cause.

What are your thoughts on this?

Thanks, Kat

The flare is probably related to the dairy. I would avoid dairy and soy. You may want to have her allergy tested as there are other allergens that can make eczema flare, such as wheat/gluten.

It is possible. My daughter reacted with an eczema flare-up when I first introduced her to cow's milk at 12 months. I researched cow's, soy and goat's milk and then chose goat's milk as I was not too comfortable with soy. She has been on goat's milk ever since and though she may flare up occasionally to another allergen or heat, she as not had the same reaction as when she first tried the cow's milk.

We had an allergy test at 19 months and it suggested that her reaction to cow's milk should be over now but I still continue to give her goat's milk. She does have some products with cow's milk occasionally and she's fine. She can now eat yogurt without flaring up.

Thank you Helen for my beautiful siggy!
