The culprit was .... Cheesecake!
Suffice it to say ... I was not impressed ... as this was not the first time I've asked the two to be careful what they give Eden ... and for the time being to avoid certain foods .... especially the next three weeks as my sister is getting married and Eden is going to be a mini bridesmaid / flower girl and I know how embarrassed and self conscious she gets when her face is flared up ...
Yes I do realize flares are inevitable during Cortisone withdrawal ... but I definitely find a connection to her eczema (above her top lip) and the food she eats...and that wisdom with what she eats does help alleviate some of the discomfort.
So we need to be wiser with regards to that.
Having said that .... I also realize that the Cortisone have to work out of her body first and foremost before we can even begin to connect the dots as to what she is actually truly allergic to because at the moment this girl is allergic to everything .... or sensitive to everything.
Her tummy has a constant redness about it (also her arms, legs, neck and some parts of her back) .... but during a flare it gets a lot redder ... hotter ... burns a lot more .... thankfully .... at the moment her skin is ... a bit calmer... she oozed (water running out of her skin) during the past week ... especially Saturday ... her clothes were soaked ... in all of this we have to just remember how amazing our bodies are ... and it's capacity to heal itself ... and that all of these symptoms (no matter how unpleasant) is actually a very very good thing.... and it will pass.
