Acne, Eczema and Krill oil.....hmmmm?

Since the beginning of our journey I have thought that maybe whatever was causing my acne flare ups maybe what is causing J's eczema flare ups. I have recently begun seeing a new doctor who took more blood from me than Dracula would have taken from an open vein. He tested a whole host of things and found that my homocystein levels were high. This makes sense given my heterozygous status for MTHFR. He recommended that I take a probiotic, b complex, D3 and krill oil. I have taken all of these things at one time or anther with the exception of krill. It has really made all the difference. I have started the girls on the D3 and probiotics on a more consistent basis, they have always taken them to some degree. Now we are religious about remembering them. We are seeing much improvement and I have moved towards finding a kid version of the krill and b complex. I must take a specific B due to my malformation and I will post an affiliate link to the krill and b complex I take. My face is so clear and I have high hopes that it may help the girls.

  1. Hi! Found your blog via an old post in the baby center forum. Would love to hear about the new doctor and how it is working for you. My daughter has MANY skin issues and I'm always trying to treat it from the inside. If you wouldn't mind, please send me an email: denaclements1@gmail.com. I'd love to have a treatment buddy!!! Hugs, Dena
