We started my dd on solids at 4 months 1 week. She ate cereal for four days, sweet potato for four days, then peas four days, now banana four days. She is almost 5 months old now.
I noticed colorless dry patches on her skin Mabie even before she was introduced to foods. However, about one week ago (she started her peas) I noticed more bumps behind her neck. I thought Mabie I didn't wash her correctly, so I made sure her whole body was washed with soap thoroughly and rinsed well. The very next morning she woke up with red inflamed dry patches in several places of her body. I'm pretty sure this is eczema. Also she had a few hives, which at that time I thought it was a bug bite.
Now, I notice that about 5-10 min after a breast feeding she has a few hives, sometimes above her lip and around the eczema spots. I have been crying b/c I hate to see my dd like this. I have been doing research and I've read that she could be allergic to milk protein from the food I eat??? Has anyone heard of this??? I feel helpless and scared. I called her pediatrician and of coarse didn't seem concerned at all. She just said oh that sounds like eczema just rub Vaseline on her she is really dry.
But why did this happen ?? I want the sorce of the problem!
