I really hope it's not a dairy allergy but I tend to believe the eczema IS related to the allergy but I'm not 100% positive it is.
My daughter's excema didn't start immediately either. She was about 8 weeks old when she first started having issues.

Have you thought about having your DD tested?

hmm that's interested, I thought it would be pretty immediate since the rest of her symptoms are..or at least somewhat close. I have thought about having her tested, and suggested it to her ped but I've always heard that allergy tests before 3 weren't very accurate. I plan on bringing it up again at her next appt though as I'm worried about giving her any solids with milk since she did have such a strong reaction, I'm worried solids would create an even worse allergic reaction if that was the case.

Re: Dairy free mamas

My DD started to get eczema at about 10 or 12 weeks. She had patches on her arms and legs, and worst of all, she had a red patch on each cheek. I tried everything imaginable topically, but nothing worked (except hydrocortisone, which I didn't want to use regularly, and the patches came back as soon as I stopped putting it on).

I'm generally dairy free anyway, but when I got really serious about eliminating hidden dairy, the patches went away.

Even now, at 3 years old, if she eats some of Daddy's (cow's milk) yogurt, she gets itchy eczema patches behind her knees.
