Eczema Hormonal Changes Breastfeeding
I am 6 months postpartum and still exclusively breastfeeding. My hair is excessively falling out in chunks and it is bothersome to me. I've been told it is because of hormonal changes and bf.
What can I do or take (i.e. Vitamins) to alleviate?
It should pass: Hair growth has stages like a farmers crops.We usually have some hair starting a growth phase as a similar number hit their shed phase.Delivery has pushed much of your scalp to enter a shed phase at the same time.It happens with other stressors sometime too.I can't buy blaming Breast feeding. It is not a deficiency and supplements won't help. Most will see their scalp return to normal over time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Pay Attention: There is sometimes a correlation to certain foods you are eating, but sometimes not. I would pay attention to what you are eating (possibly even keeping a journal) and see if your baby's eczema gets particularly worse after eating certain foods.

Not likely: There is evidence to suggest that moderate/severe eczema in early childhood could be worsened by certain foods (usually highly allergenic foods like peanut, tree nuts, milk, eggs, etc.). Food triggers are not usually an issue with adult eczema. If you notice a consist pattern of worsening eczema with a particular food then by all means avoid it. Change in diet will definitely not cure eczema. ...Read more
Why has my eczema gone all of a sudden? Cleared up, with no cream or special treatment applied. Was it the temperature change that caused this orr possibly just coincidence?
My child has eczema but today has started to break out in a rash all over his body.Nothing in his diet or home has changed. ?
Same or different?: Rash same or different than his eczema, and if so, how? Eczema, or atopic dermatitis is a chronic, relapsing rash by definition. It will spontaneously flare on its own as well as flare from triggers varying from environmental changes, stress, and potentially food allergy. Seek an allergist to identify such porential triggers. ...Read more
My toddler 19 month got eczema. I'm thinking may be its cow formula. So thinking to change her formula. Which formula is better soy or goat formula?
Either, but...: 1. Eczema is rarely caused by a food allergy. Nothing wrong with trying, but it probably won't help. 2. Children over 1 year old do not need "formula". You can buy regular goat milk, almond milk, soy milk, etc. 3. Any of these are fine nutritionally as long as they are only a minor part of the diet (less that 16 ounces a day). He/she should be getting mostly regular table food. ...Read more
