Hello all, I'm new to the site so sorry if this is in the worng place I tried to find a board on it but couldn't. My daughter is turning 2 next month and was recently diganosed with Eczema. This isn't new to my family, I have Asthma, and my brother and sister have eczema. But I read that eczema is a allergic reaction, and have talked to multiple people saying that once they figured out what they were allergic to it made their eczema either go away or become way more managable. I have to come to recently believe that she may be allergic to vinegar. As around her mouth gets bright red (or her skin where it touches) when she eats dressings or pickles. Not saying I'm right, it's just a thought. Was wondering what all yall out there thought about the allergy or even just the eczema. Thank you for your time!
My son was around 2-3 when he came up with excema like splotches but no doctor has ever flat out said that is what it is oddly enough.
His only severe reaction was around his belly button, a hideous rash that just wouldn't go away for the longest time which is when I took him in once again and was given a creme that finally took it away when nothing else had.
At one point, he also came up with the little white pimple like sore on his sides along his ribcages that his pediatrician said was a sexually transmitted disease in adults!! I was like WTH?! That went away and never returned however.
Cold or heat is about the worst of it. That and staying in water too long.
