Q.

8 month old Granddaughter with Systamitus

My granddaughter went to see a dermatologist today and he diagnosed her as have Systamitus (not sure on spelling) but basically he informed her parents that shes allergic to everything that touches her skin & mdash  as her mother was when she was young. Also after her pediatrician did blood wook last week the baby is carring a high amount of yeast in her blood. What does this mean? Is this dangerous? Pleas tell me what you can.
Thanks,
Patti

I would really like to answer your question but I am unable to work out the name of the condition you call Systamitus. Please get the correct name of the diagnosis of her skin condition so that I can give you more information. Also please ask about the high amount of yeast in your granddaughter's blood as this is not a common diagnosis.I also need to know her age. Please let me know as soon as you can.
