eczema & hyperactive

Hello Dr Stoll,
My grandson has had eczema since birth and he is now 7 year old and I have noticed that there seems to be a pattern in his breakouts of sores.

He has many red sores on his ankles and front of his feet all the time but when he gets very inatentive and hyperactive in class and at home a fair devil getting into mischief, I've noticed it seems these sores become much more crusted up and infected and he also gets more sores like this on his neck and in the groin. Another thing he gets very hot and clammy. He is not overweight, more likely to be underweight. Do you think that this could be related as when his sores start to settle down a bit he also settles down himself and doesn't get into trouble as much.

Hi Noelene - Your Grandson is experiencing an allergic reaction to certain foods and beverages that he's consuming and my guess would be grains like wheat products, including breads, oats, corn, including pop corn and box cereals - chocolate - tomatoes and tomato sauces - peanut butter, switch to almond butter - milk, soda pop and OJ. Any of these items could be irritating his gut (digestive tract) lining. He would not be experiencing rashes/hives (eczema) unless his intestinal tract was inflamed (leaky gut), which means that his Eczema is just mirroring the inflamed condition of his gut lining. Therefore, eliminate the foods and beverages that I listed above and his Eczema should clear up within a month or two but if left untreated, he will be doomed to a life of health problems. * Rick * PS - Check the BB Archives for Leaky Gut Syndrome.

Hi, Noelene.

Listen to Rick.

Just imagine how this constant itching stimulates a child!

Since stress helps stimulate both conditions, they feed upon each other.

If you can get his parents and him to cooperate with an LGS and a C-RS program, along with a deliberate elimination/provocation investigation, you have a chance of resolving both.

Also see the brain chemistry archives.

Let us know what you learn.

Hello,

Can anyone please help me with a suggested diet that would be suitable for my 7 year old gandson. After eliminating what you advise, doesn't seem to leave much to choose from.
Thank you

Noelene.

Thousands have done it so I know it is possible. i have done it myself just to be sure I could and did not even have eczema for my incentive. If any other treatment has been successful you would not be here. As I have said many times before: There is no doubt that these approaches work, ONLY if one can get the patient to DO them.

You have to take this step by step. First you have to deal with his C-RS and then if he still has any eczema, a one at a time elimination/provocation diet.

Knowledge will set you free.

Walt

Hi Nolene,

There is such a variety of food available when you look for it! I've done the strictest diet possible, so I know it's possible to eat very very well after cutting out all the ordinary foods. Actually, eating out-of-the-ordinary foods can be such a great adventure!

Your best bet would be to go to a health food store. You'll find a variety of foods and cookbooks there. You can get information about the elimination diet there or from your library.

Best wishes,
Happygal
