  1. Thanks stephm. My son also has extremely dry skin (it flares into full blown eczema at times). He licks his lips when he's nervous and gets a huge angry red rash around his mouth...
  2. Thanks Jkta. Yes, it always seems like a struggle to get him to drink water! That is definitely something we need to work on - I'm sure it would help. All the best with your daughter...
  3. Thanks for your input ravenwoodglass. I thought the same thing but she caused me to question that. In all fairness, she did say that an elimination diet may be a good idea...
  4. Hello all. My 7 y/o son has been struggling with chronic constipation since he started solid foods. He has been on PEG (miralax, restoralax) for a couple years and we have...
  5. Hi all - I kind of threw this on the end of a previous thread I started but thought I would start a new one for simplicity sake... I have been negative on all celiac blood...
  6. Just posting a recap of new happenings this last year - I would love some more advice. I personally have had more blood work done (while travelling in the USA). All blood work is...
  7. Hi winjer. I am far from an expert but can maybe help a little... Do you have the results of the biopsy? Could you get them? Do you know how many samples were taken and from where...

  10. That's good to know - we will give it some time when we lower his iodine intake. Thanks so much for all your help
  11. Thanks everyone. We will try to lower his iodine intake to see if it helps. So yesterday evening his elbows started looking inflamed/infected (I didn't get a picture as he's already...
  12. Hmm... I haven't really noticed that it gets worse with iodine but I'm not really familiar with high-iodine foods. Would that be foods with lots of iodized salt? He does crave salty...
  13. Here's another pic - would this be considered a flare-up? He really doesn't seem to find it that itchy... I don't think it has ever kept him up at night or anything... Thank you...
  14. Very interesting - thanks so much Nolev. Yeah, prednisone is terrible - I really hope he never has to be on it again Good to know that psoriasis reacts the same... food for thought...
