wheat allergy

Hi doc! I took my 14 month old toddler to a paediatrician for a rash that wouldn''t go away. She has an allergy to wheat. I''m so stressed out as to what to feed her now. She is breastfed &  a poor eater. Pls can you give me a few guidelines with regard to her diet. Also what cream should I use on her body. Her rash is on her arms &  cheeks.

Your little girl seems to have an eczema rash. Wheat allergy is quite conmmon in children with eczema, but wheat-free diets are very difficult to apply. It is best to get the advice of a dietician in your area. Fortunately your daughter has a very good chance of outgrowing her wheat allergy.Use Epimax Junior on her body after bathing her.You can also apply this cream to her arms and cheeks.

I was at the dermotolgist with my son last week because of pimples and blisters, he too has eczema we discovered and allergies. He recommended that we use Aqua body wash and Aqua moisturising lotion, we were using Epimax, but he said Aqua is the best to use. I bought it at Dischem.
