Hello, I have son who is now7 months old he has eczema since then. We check his blood he got milk, nuts, barely, goat milk, egg allergies. I came to know that chitrak ( chitro) would help. I am breast feeding my baby. Would you suggest me please. What would help for those allergies to resolve if it is possible. May I consume so he could get it by my breast? Thanks regards x
