As some of you may know I have a dd who suffers from severe eczema and asthma.
The problem has reached the point where I have been advised to remove wheat and dairy from her diet to see if this may be causing or at least making the problem worse.
The problem is that she loves bread and cheese and I often bake so she would be missing out on treats like shortbread and the odd jam sponge.
Has anyone got any experience of removing these items from their children's diet?? I am hoping that if it does have a positive affect that she may be able to have the odd treat once her skin is under control.
I can't tell you how horrible I am feeling about her condition. She is the only one in our family to suffer like this and now I am making her feel the odd one out again by giving her a different diet. I have tried to say that she will have her own 'special' food but she is 9 now and it just isn't cutting it. As far as possible we will all follow her diet but then I feel guilty about my other children as I will be enforcing an unnecessary change to the way they eat also.
guilt, guilt, guilt!!! :(
