Allergies?

Pretty much since the beginning Eli has had a rash on his face, at first it looked like infant acne, then it got worse.  Turns out its eczema.  I have had a lot of problems in the past with eczema and when we saw the doctor, he looked at my arm and then announced, "He has eczema, looks like he got it from you, its hereditary." AKA you broke your baby with your sucky genetics. Thanks. He's also been kinda colicky so my health nurse suggested cutting out dairy in my diet. Frankly that's just mean! ALL of my favourite foods are dairy, cheese, cheesecake, ice cream, ice cream cake, you can see where I'm going here. Either way I've been clean for almost a week, his face looks a ton better (although that could also be the medicated cream).  But he is in a WAY better mood most of the time. Now its still too early to tell but I feel like this little change has made a difference in his over all mood.  I'm hoping to see if it does anything for my skin, nothing yet, but it hasn't even been a week so you never know.
