Mother Follows Gut, Believes Son Has Medical Allergy Causing Skin To Melt

One woman ached because of the pain her infant son went through. Then, she discovered a home remedy that changed her child's life.

Baby Isaiah's skin flare-ups were beyond horrific. When the baby's skin first showed signs of problems he was three months old. Doctors had diagnosed the baby with eczema but the problem grew out of control.

Isaiah's red, raw, blisters, dripping skin was so bad, the family could barely touch him. They had become reclusive because Isaiah just got worse when he was taken outside or when he came into contact with other people.

Stephanie Smith, 35, spent most of her days trying to bring some comfort to Isaiah. She would wrap him in damp cloths and gauze to protect his skin. She'd wrap him in towels and put him in water, the only place he seemed to find some relief. She'd spend hours at his side as he soaked in the sink.

"It was like he had no skin. He was in agony. At one point it was so bad I thought, 'if this is going to be his life, please take him,'" said Smith.

That's when the worried mother made a discovery. In doing some research on the internet, she stumbled across posts about allergies.

"We still don’t know for sure what caused the original contact dermatitis," Smith said. "But looking back, because of severe medical allergies in my family history, I think it might have been a reaction to medication."

After 35 doctors had prescribed medications like topical steroids and antibiotics through Isaiah's short life, Smith followed her gut and stopped it all. Things began to get better.

Smith began experimenting with home-made healing balms. A few of the recipes seemed to bring some relief to poor Isaiah. He couldn't talk, but whenever he saw the container of balm he would get excited and reach for it, showing that he liked it.

Within a few months, Isaiah's skin cleared up.

"Now he has no allergies and nothing happens if he is near someone wearing perfume. I can wear deodorant again and wash my hair with scented shampoo," said Smith. "He is like any other toddler. He chatters away, runs everywhere and is into everything."

His family is making up on a lot of lost hugs and kisses. Smith hopes to get the word out with a blog in hopes that her experience will help others suffering from allergies.
