I’m an ex-pat currently living in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. I’m finding it difficult in this part of the world to find a doctor that can treat my 5 month old daughter with eczema. I know she has eczema but the doctors have not bothered to tell me exactly what type of eczema she has. I know she has a milk allergy so I’ve cut that out of my diet along with soy, nuts, wheat and fish. On top of that I’ve been using Castile soap to wash her hair and clothes and then I air dry her clothes. I’ve bought a humidifier as well.
The doctor prescribed Elecon for her and I use that sparingly on her cheecks but it’s not 100% effective. I hate using steroids. I find that the eczema is spreading more and more as the days go by and as much as I try to alter my diet because I’m nursing her. I take more Vitamin A, Vitamin E and Omega 3,6,9 and apply emu oil and nemu oil topically on her but I’m finding suttle relief.
I don’t know what else to do or if i should just consider going back to LA, California and just have a specialist look at her.
