Had Success in Treating Ezcema Without Steroids?

My baby is 7 mo old now and he has had ezcema for two months now. It has gotten progressively worst. I was able to manage it with eliminating foods he is alergic to from my diet (still breastfeeding). He is alergic to milk, eggs, peanuts and almonds (as far as skin test can tell!). I am pulling my hair out as we speak - I've been on a strict diet for two weeks now without ALL theese and his condition is getting worst. He is oozing horribly at night and itchy - progressively in the past 4 days. Benadryl does not seem to help. Has anyone...

Hives! Hives! Hives! I Keep Breaking Out in Hives!

Have any of you every had problems with Hives? I keep breaking out with them on my neck. My husband thinks it's stress. I've made sure my lotions & soaps are free of dyes & smells, but I still keep getting them. Are there certain foods that make you get hives? Has anyone else had this problem? If so, what did you do? I buy lots of cortizone & take Benadryl, but I'd like to stop it from happening, not treat the symptoms.

Healing from Poison Ivy Rash

I got a fairly bad poison ivy rash on both of my arms. It took 2 rounds of steroids, steroid cream and antibiotic to get it under control. I still have red discoloration from where the rash was, no more blisters or open wounds. I've been putting aquaphor on it. Is there something else I should try. I'm fair skinned so I scar fairly easily. Also, I know the steroid pack affected my sleep and I still feel like I can't sleep well at night. How long does it take to get back to a normal nights sleep, I've been off the steroids for 3...
