Found some medications to control the dryness of my eczema but I see that they have "inactive ingredients lactose" milk makes me flare up ,will this?
Milk, maybe: To check for reflux and eczema from the milk, i suggest avoiding milk for 3 days; on the 4th day give the baby milk and see if the reflux or eczema worsens. If it does repeat the avoidance and challenge to confirm. If either condition worsens, i suggest avoiding for a month and rechecking. Most such issues resolve with a little time and patience. ...Read more
My one year old has eczema have found out that he allergy to cows milk he is on gosts can he be allergic to tat too?
Yes, but unlikely: He can be allergic to any food, and that includes goat's milk. However, goats milk is one of the least allergenic foods that there is, so it is generally a good alternative if someone has a serious cow's milk allergy. Your child can be tested to see if he is allergic t the new milk, with either skin testing, clinical trial of the new milk, or blood testing. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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
Dry Skin Care: 1. Shower no more than once a day. 2. Never shower with hot water. 3. Use a mild soap like dove or olay bar. Ivory is very drying and should be avoided. 4. Pat dry after showering, do not rub. 5. If one takes a bath, never sit in dirty soapy water. Use soap immediately before exiting the tub. 6. Apply moisturizer immediately after drying off. Ointments or oils are more moisturizing than creams. ...Read more

I have borderline milk and maize allergy results, yet why are my reactions so extreme if b'line? Awful daily urticaria, facial angiodema, eczema.
History is more imp: Believe you are referring to rast testing, and you are describing urticaria/angioedema, which might be due to food allergy, symptom scores, if directly related to ingestion of milk/maize, are more reliable in establishing a diagnosis despite border line rast, however most of the time no specific cause could be found, at any rate you need to be evaluated by an allergist/immunologist, good luck. ...Read more

Depends: On what too much means to you. Humans are the only mammals that continue to consume milk after early childhood, and all milk has lots of fat and cholesterol. While goat's milk produces less allergic and GI symptoms in many people than cows milk, it is not necessarily healthier. A diet heavy on plant-based food and light on animal-based food, including milk, is healthiest. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Better than cow but:: In general I agree with the many experts who say that milk is designed by nature as a food for babies and most adults are better off avoiding milk. See http://saveourbones.com/osteoporosis-milk-myth/ But if you really want milk for some reason, goat milk is a healthier choice than cow's milk.

Can I switch my 10 month old from formula to goats milk? Lately she has been refusing formula and only wants to eat solids.
Why bother: Milk is a convenient source of calcium in a kids diet & promoted heavily by the dairy industry as a perfect food, bull! if a kid is exploring other foods, calcium sources like yogurt, cottage cheese, cheese, goat cheese and even calcium tablets can provide all they need.They can get the fat/protein/fluid they need thru other diet sources including water. ...Read more
