Breast milk eczema

Common Questions and Answers about Breast milk eczema


9807151 tn?1406765659 I have it really bad..
Avatar n tn Eczema can also be a symptom of a milk/soy protein intolerance! This is definitely worth looking into! My friend was exclusively breast feeding and when she cut out all dairy and soy from her diet, her little guy's eczema cleared right up! So, it is an allergy thing.
1123420 tn?1350564758 I really want my baby to have breast milk for the first month or so, but really can't imagine actually breast feeding, so I was thinking about just pumping it.. I don't know the first thing about it. So is that any different, does it break the bond? Does it hurt any less? I have absolutely no idea, so if you could help me with these questions, or let me know other things that I need to know, I'd really appreciate it. Thank you!!
Avatar f tn HIV is present in breast milk which can be dangerous for babies but there would be insufficient quantities of the virus to affect an adult. However the likelihood this woman had HIV in the first place is very very slim. Adding all the risks together your risk is probably greater than 1:1000000. On these odds I wouldn't bother getting tested however for peace of mind a HIV Duo test can be taken. As for your cold symptoms they sound like a run of the mill infection to me and not symptoms of HIV.
Avatar n tn However, my partner is concerned that continuing breastfeeding will increase the risks of him developing problems. His argument is that my breast milk carries genetic material that inevitably will get processed by the baby's body and thus affect his long-term health. Also, that any existing genetic predispositions related to eczema may remain dormant by ceasing breastfeeding. Is this likely or even possible?
Avatar f tn What is the best treatment for vaginal Eczema. I have this for years now, it comes and goes. I use Calendula gel when I have symptoms, it seems to help but not completely. Is there something that I can use that is more effective. It is very uncomfortable. Burning sensation, etc. I had a biopsy done a few years ago and results came back (SPONGIOTIC DERMATITIS) which I been told is like ECZEMA. Can you please help or have any comments regarding this condition.
1044916 tn?1253345563 I am already taking a prenatal vitamin is it ok to add a B complex while I'm breast feeding? It definitely feels like eczema. You mentioned it could be Atopic, could food be the developed allergic condition that is causing it to break out. I really want to find out what is causing the breakouts so i can stop eating it. I am seeing my primary DR. next week, but because my insurance is soon to run out, I want to make sure they run the correct test to find out as much as possible about this rash.
Avatar n tn He had some weird episodes of breaking out in hives for no apparant reason and the doctors figured I had eaten something with milk in it that got transferred into my breast milk which caused the reaction. The scary thing is the more your child is exposed the worse the symptoms will get. It might not be a bad idea to switch your baby to nutramagen. That is what we put my son on and he thrived on it.
Avatar f tn I wash my breasted and use lansilor but it gives temporary relief. I have the milk but after my baby feeds the **** become so o painful. I almost feel like giving. I dont know what to do.
Avatar f tn I am going to be increasing my work load this summer and I have not been able to store up much breast milk at this point--my reserves in the freezer are low and and I am not producing enough during the day to pump and freeze. I dont like this, but I am going to have to supplement with formula when I am gone. So I had my hubby pick up a small can of formula at the store for back up...
Avatar n tn Same deal with my daughter. Rounds of all of the above since taking her off breast milk as an infant. She's 3 1/2 now. We're still dealing with severe breakouts, just not as often -- found NAET to be helping. I'm a believer in integrated medicine (Western & Eastern). NAET is along the lines of accupressure. Check into it, the "AE" stands for allergy elimination. Good luck & if someone finds a cure, please post it!!!
Avatar f tn I am 14 years old. And I have a huge background of breast cancer in my family. I've had two pimple like spots on my nipple. One on each breast. Ive always though this was normal until now. I have squeezed at them before amd a liquidy, milk like liquid has came out(not puss). I have had these for at least a year but recently I noticed two red spits below my nipple on my right breast. They are not irritating me at all but, they are red with out a head. I know it's not acne. Any suggestions?
Avatar m tn My wife has been breast feeding her, but we wanted to introduce milk because she wasn't developing enough milk throughout the day. She is able to drink soy with no problems. I am confused alittle because when she was about two weeks old we gave her some milk formula because my wife had to take antibiotics for a couple of days and she had no reaction.
Avatar f tn Your boyfriend is right as to breastfed babies get sick less bc breast milk has stuff in it that formula can never imitate but just bc your baby gets sick a lot doesnt mean that its bc you didnt breast feed. If you want your baby on a bottle you can always just pump. Even giving your baby breast milk for a short period of time will be very beneficial. It is always worth a try and if it doesnt work well at least you tried instead of dismissing it all together.
442270 tn?1208029921 Hello, I have a eczema like rash on my right breast next to my nipple and little bumps (which in my research are called skin mets, from the pic I have seen that is what the bumps I have look like) around my breast. I have been doing some research and my symptoms are similar of that to Inflammatory Breast Cancer. I have at least 4 of the symptoms that are listed in the articles I have read.
Avatar m tn With this new pregnancy I am producing less and less breast milk and it's getting more watery. Max is 4 months old and he loves to eat baby food but I want to make sure he is getting the proper nutrition. So far he has done fine with apples, bananas, meat, chicken and turkey but he breaks out in rash on his cheeks and forehead with Organic Brown Rice Cereal, Goats Milk and Soy Formula. He cannot tolerate any form of cow's milk.
Avatar n tn I am a first time mother Initially I had lots of milk unfortunately I lost my milk by second week I am worrying a lot for that Sometimes I am getting depressed too At his 2nd week he got suffered with acid reflux at his 8weeks he got eczema Now he is 12 weeks old he has the cradle cap I am switched from Similac sensitive to Similac expert care which is very costly formula But now a days he is not taking milk properly I think all these due to lack of breast milk I didn't even took the prenatal
Avatar n tn Had severe allergic reactions to all formulas(including breast milk) from colic, eczema, severe itching,projectile vomitus, stools ranging from green diarhea to black pellets with anal fissures. Her stomach gets tight and hard after eating, she cries through the night choking and with coaghing and labored breathing. The Otolaryngologist stated her problem is GI related. I have taken her to the emergency room and asked them to admit her to observe her behavior.

Avatar n tn He has always been very senstitive to my breast milk and if I ate anything gassy, he would suffer. Now that he's started solids, I have to be careful and one day to the next a food can affect him but not the other. I gave him a teaspoon of egg yolk yesterday for the first time and last night he was screaming for most of the night with wind. I had to give him gripe water, tummy troubles drops and do massage and bicycle legs for most of the night.
1517754 tn?1290790562 She was getting it through my breast milk. I stopped taking them when they ran out and it has come back. I wasn't sure if yeast could cause a facial rash? It looks like a dry red irritated rash. It gets worse when she gets hot, gets milk on her face, etc. I wash her face often but it doesn't improve as well as try different lotions to moisturize/dry it out. Nothing seems to help.
631676 tn?1333721803 One thing after another and my milk is not increasing. Now I can get the milk out stronger by my hands than with the pump. Literally squeezing my boob in her mouth whatever I can just so she does not loose interest for the taste. Can't get appt to see doctor about tongue tie until the 13th. Not sure my milk production will last. Pumping/manual expression so often that DH is getting all the bonding time. Game over??
Avatar f tn Breast milk.. Just dab some on and let dry.. If u have some or u can Google or Craig's list buying breast milk...
Avatar f tn I had breast eczema. I was told by a dermatologist to wear only cotton bras and it helped it go away. I also was prescribed cortesone cream and it helped. But we later discovered that using it had blocked my milk ducts and I couldn't breast feed when I had my children. But wearing only natural breathing materials around my breast and the cortesone cream did the trick.
6335656 tn?1380426883 My itching started when I moved to a farm and started drinking Pasturised milk. I started to get eczema on the backs of my legs. I stopped drinking the milk but the itching didnt stop. One of my boobs started itching really bad and I have just had a baby so i thought it may of been thrush. I treated it but it kept itching. Then it started on the insides of my arms and as well as the itching and burning I got little bumbs. then it spread to my chest and other breast.
Avatar f tn My 7 month son has eczema and has had a rattling in his breathing which gets worse at night for 4 weeks. The doctor has looked at him and says it's coming fro high up which means there's nothing wrong. However i'm worried it's asthma. My brother had it with eczema as a child so there's a family history. He's got an intolerance to cows milk so he only eats soya. He's had a permanent cold since he was about 2 weeks old.
Avatar f tn Doctors chalked it up to silent reflux and put him on meds. He has digestive issues and bad skin. It looks like eczema, but nothing helps it. He had a seizure a few weeks ago and EMTs took him by ambulance because they said his body temp was too low. Dr said all looked fine and they suspected a febrile seizure, but my daughter said his fever was only 101 when she last checked it. He gets rash on his cheeks that either looks red or purple, then will start to act lethargic and run a fever.
6395937 tn?1380922492 as far as milk, some kids have an allergy to milk that shows up looking like eczema. You'd need to determine if milk is involved in the skin issue and you do that with an allergist. And in terms of being sick and milk---- I did stay away from it a bit because it is so nasty to vomit it back up. It curdles and my kids hated that! so, I went with clear liquids.
Avatar f tn You can still bf if baby has an intolerance by avoiding dairy in your diet. Your milk is very different from cows milk. The baby would exhibit reflux, rashes, or bloody stool if it has an allergy or intolerance.
