2 yr old is intolerant of milk, gets stomach pain, eczema. can we safely use goats milk soap to bathe him, though?

Avoid all milk items: It would be best to avoid milk products until the child is older. They may outgrow the intolerance. Use a mild soap like a glycerine based one. Check labels for Casein proteins in foods, cosmetics, etc. ...Read more

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?

Not on your skin: I'm going to assume that "milk makes me flare up" means that milk gives you diarrhea and you've been told you are lactose intolerant. This won't affect your skin. Good luck with you new Rx. ...Read more

Does milk make acid reflux worse? Can a allergy to milk cause reflux and eczema?

Does milk make acid reflux worse? Can a allergy to milk cause reflux and eczema?

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 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?

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

I have really bad eczema but i hate using the cream or bathing in milk. What can I do?

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

Needs to be seen: Rashes are very difficult to diagnosis without seeing the rash. Take the child to her regular physician or another healthcare provider to have the rash evaluated.
