Baby with persistent skin rash

Skin: A mother reports

When our son Dominik was only three months old, he developed a stubborn rash starting at his forehead and running down the side of his face to his neck. The paediatrician believed that it was a special case of baby acne. He said that it couldn’t be anything serious, because I was still breastfeeding all the time. We treated the skin with greasy ointments, but this didn’t help at all.

A few weeks later I took my baby to a dermatologist. She had the following to say: “If you are still breastfeeding all the time it cannot be neurodermatitis.” However she did prescribe my little boy with an ointment containing hydrocortisone. This was said to have no side effects for the baby. The rash subsided, but the skin was still like paper, yellowish and thin in the places where it had been treated.

I found another dermatologist. His diagnosis: neurodermatitis. I was still breastfeeding all the time at this point. He gave us a preparation with hydrocortisone. Nevertheless, he suggested that if I wanted to, I could try abstaining from all dairy products. “But parents who need to keep their children from eating certain foods know how difficult it is to change their own and their child’s diet and it is not a long-term solution, because you would just go crazy,” he confirmed.

Parents who need to keep their children from eating certain foods know how difficult it is to change their own and their child’s diet.

I stopped breastfeeding in the meantime and the biggest problem was now keeping everyone else from treating my child to cakes, biscuits etc.

Dominik was just one year old and I was more or less with him the entire day, but how would it be at the nursery? In fact it turned out that strict abstinence from dairy contributed to his skin looking less healthy. Now his elbows, pubic area, back of the knees and lower legs were also affected. It was worse on hot days than on colder days.

When Dominik was around 1 1/2 years old a friend told me that a colleague of hers had a stubborn patch of psoriasis on her head for some years and had finally been cured by a naturopath. After we obtained the address, some 25 km from our home town, I immediately made an appointment and took my little boy there. What made me feel immediately positive was that there were mothers in the waiting room who were there with their second and third child for treatment. So, I reasoned, they could also possibly help Dominik here.

… We were very sceptical, but we didn’t want to leave any stone unturned …

We learned from the naturopath couple that they worked with bioresonance and we had to adhere to strict diets for a prescribed period of time, so that the main allergies could be treated with bioresonance. Now, if I am being totally honest, we were very sceptical, but we didn’t want to leave any stone unturned.

And actually, Dominik became bonnier and healthier from session to session. The progress made was remarkable. After just half a year the treatment was complete, he could eat anything he liked again and to this day is free of symptoms. Today Dominik is 10 years old, still has rather dry and sensitive skin which needs to be looked after, but is otherwise healthy.

Incidentally, a GP in our area has since also started using bioresonance therapy. From other people I have also heard about other businesses nearby where patients can go for bioresonance treatment. The method appears to be gaining in acceptance, is successful and I am completely convinced of its efficacy.
