HELP FOR MY GRADDAUGHTER

This is my grand child and we need help... The doctors say this is caused by food allergies.  I can't believe that she is the only child that suffers from something like this.  There has to be a way to help her. We have had her tested and found that she is allergic to milk, wheat and eggs.  She is miserable. Her skin itches, she scratches, it causes bleeding , she cries, and it starts all over again. She has rashes all over her body. If anyone has any help for us please forward it to me. ***@****.

This condition is typical of atopic dermatitis,an internal allergy- eminently treatable with antibiotic,external steroids and antihistaminics.Get her treated for this,it may recur but allevate the symptoms a lot.

Hello,
I understand your concern for the beautiful child.In my opinion,this can be due to atopic dermatitis or eczema. Atopic allergy is a type of immediate hypersensitivity in humans resulting from spontaneous sensitization.Diagnosis of allergies is done by skin ***** or patch tests and confirmation is done by blood tests like RAST.

I would suggest that you get these tests done for the various allergens from an allergist.Treatment usually consists of avoidance of allergen.Other treatment options include oral antihistaminics,topical or oral decongestants for rhinitis and nasal congestion; topical steroids for skin rashes and itching; oral steroids in more severe cases and bronchodilators in cases of difficulty in breathing and wheezing.

These medications all help to relieve short term symptoms of allergic reactions. However, there is a way of preventing the long term symptoms of allergies. This is through a process known as immunology, more commonly referred to as an allergy shot.You can also discuss this treatment option with the allergist.

Hope it helps. Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.Kind regards.
