Eczema - Symptom? Paranoid Since His Sister Has Celiac

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I have a 6 year old that has Celiac disease.  She's had it since she was 1 year old.  We are very used to it....however, that also makes me paranoid to it.  My 3 year old hasn't been tested, he has no symptoms of it so his ped decided it's not necessary yet. Recently he developed Eczema on this thighs, it keeps getting worse.  I noticed it was particularly bad tonight after he had eaten non gluten free spaghetti.  (Currently my daughter and I eat gluten free, the other 3 kids and my husband do not, with a family of 6 most things we make are gluten-free but not all.  my daughter and I were both tested and have the HLADQ2.5 gene).
 

Am I being paranoid and thinking this when it's typical toddler eczema???

 

Thanks!

Depending on where you live, it could be weather related.  My DD's eczema gets bad from about now till March/April. Slather him up in a GOOD cream after a warm bath and you may stop it from progressing.

That said, it's recommended that any blood relatives be tested every 3 years OR if they exhibit signs. It may be something to consider to have a baseline of where things are now!

It could be, especially if it keeps getting worse.

Thanks so much guys!  I will keep an eye on it and if it does flare up more with some things he eats than others.  Once you have a child with it you seem to want to blame everything in the other kids on it, LOL!

Shadowicewolf - do you have a good lotion you use?  I bookmarked a list, but wondered if any of them work better than others.
