Our expert says:
From what you say about your poor son's condition, he could well suffer from a whole range of skin conditions that are not affected by food allergy at all. You have discovered for yourself that cutting out food like seafood and milk and having allergy tests done, did not help. Is there any way that you could bring your son to South Africa to be examined by a Dermatologist??? He could be an atopic child, or have eczema or even contact dermatitis caused by something as innocent as the soap or washing powder used to wash him and his clothes. I don't know where you live in Mozambique, but there are Dermatologists in Nelspruit which is relatively close to the border of your country. You or your local doctors would have to contact the Dermatologists to arrange a visit before you undertake the journey.
Please consider this option of getting a Dermatological assessment and treatment because your child must be suffering so severely.
I will hold thumbs that you can arrange a visit and that the drs will be able to diagnose and treat your son. In the meanwhile please don't remove foods from his diet without supplementing the missing nutrients (e.g. when you remove milk and dairy products it is necessary to give growing children a calcium supplement to ensure that their bones and teeth can continue growing).
