Baby Food Allergies

Print Friendly


Recently my daughter had rashes on her back and a few on her stomach. When I visited the doctor she told me its probably a food allergy. Also, she said it can be eczema due to weather or the food allergy could have caused eczema.

Some other symptoms that you should look out for: Swelling, breathing troubles, vomiting and diarrhea

So here are some remedies that were suggested:

  • We were asked to apply a medicated cream to stop the itching and reduce the rash.
  • Check the food was given in the past few days and stop it immediately. Sadly we always give a little bit of every thing we eat and have introduced her to too many new food, and we could not figure out the culprit. So another tip for you: only one new food per week
  • Almost most food allergies are caused by one of these foods:
    Tree nuts (like walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, Brazil nuts, and cashews),
    fishes like tuna, salmon or cod

So stop all these allergens till your baby recovers.

  • For eczema caused due to food allergies apply moisturizer 2-3 times a day. Cetaphil was suggested which I already use.
  • There is no other treatment sadly just that you need to watch out and be very careful about what you feed your baby.
