Q.

ALLERGY ECZEMA

My baby is 6 weeks old and my GP as well as a paediatrician have confirmed that my baby has a high allergy due to the fact that my husband and I have really high allergy levels. I am using S26 Gold milk and dr'  s say do not change the milk to soya. What should I do. I do not want to use cortisone cream, is there anything else that I can use? I am so desperate...

Your baby can be tested for allergies now, but even if you do not have this done now, you should change his formula to NAN HA.Use a moisturiser on his skin such as Physiogel AI.Do not use any baby soaps or oils.
