Chiropractic Management of a Pediatric Patient with Eczema

This 16-month-old female patient presented to a chiropractor with eczema lesions covering the entire body except for the diaper area. Her eczema began shortly after her mother added formula to her diet, along with breast milk. In addition to the skin condition, she also suffered from constipation. The medical intervention suggested was cortisone therapy, but the patient declined. Her mother tried homeopathic remedies, removing cow's milk from the diet and Diversified, Bio Energetic Synchronization Technique (BEST) and Toftness without success. Chiropractic adjustments were administered for 5 weeks, after which the eczema completely resolved. After two Alphabiotic adjustments over a four day period, the eczema was reduced by 50% and she was napping longer. After three weeks (7 more adjustments), the eczema was almost gone.
