Not so fun

My (breastfed) baby is showing signs of food allergies/sensitivities. We have been battling eczema that started at 3 months - his face has cleared up nicely with various moisturisers and emollients, but his legs and neck slowly worsen until hydrocortisone is necessary. His gut is not happy either, and he is very gassy. At first I just thought there might have been teeth on the way, but combining all the little things the picture looks like something food related.

We see the doctor again tomorrow, fingers crossed that we can work out a way to proceed.

My poor wee baby.

I hope it's something that's easy to cut out; not wheat or anything that's in everything!
