Re: Help diagnosis 4-month old infant (pics) not vaccinated, exclusively breastfed, cheek area has rash and yellow scabs
Deficient...I didn't think that could cause the skin problems.
I finally visited the pediatrician. She recommended to me Dr. Sears elimination diet, which I'm doing now, but I'll be doing it without the rice, millet and potatoes, which it says are okay. Here is what it says:
ē Eat only range-fed turkey and lamb, baked or boiled potatoes and sweet potatoes (with salt and pepper only), rice and millet as your only grain, cooked green and yellow squash for your vegetable, and for fruit, pears and diluted pear juice. Drink a rice-based beverage drink in place of milk on cereal or in cooking. Do not yet use soy beverage. Take a calcium supplement. (Rice products, such as rice beverage, rice-based frozen dessert, rice pasta, rice flour, and millet are available in nutrition stores.)
I'm pretty hungry. So I'm basically just eating the free-range turky, lamb, squash and pears.
And I'd think that if nutritional deficiencies were the problem, now I'll be even more deficient on this new diet.
