At first I thought it was just colic, but after we tried the switch along with other symptoms, including TERRIBLE eczema, everything got better. Hopefully your little one feels better soon. My son grew out of it as well. Except the skin problem. He's 2 1/2 and we are still battling... (19 replies)
... Hello Ladies, Are you both aware that Nutramigen contains casein hydrolysate, which is a milk protein? It is broken down extensively, which is what is supposed to make it easier for babies to digest, but it is still a milk protein, and if your babies really do have a milk protein allergy, their symptoms will not completely go away until you switch them to a milk-free...

... I still have to bathe my son nightly, he looks like pig pen from Charlie Brown at the end of every day. I am just very vigilant about putting lotion and his medicated cream on every time.

... Thank you all for your replies. You are so very helpful!!!!!!! We have been very lucky. She has only had one patch on the back of her thigh the size of a quarter and a small spot on the top of her foot the past year. It hasn't been until this weekend that it has spread. I was silly to think that a baby sunblock would be sensitive enough. She now has it on her arms and... (8 replies)
... Yes.. if the child has a contact allergy to a component.. I have an allergy to propylene glycol and it is in almost all lotions. You should look into skin testing for contact allergens.
