Additionally, she may be experiencing an essential fatty acids deficiency. 1 T of flax seed oil 3 times per day can help this. I would also look to food sensitivities in the diet such as dairy, eggs or wheat. These may have to be eliminated. Plantain leaf tea would be helpful, regardless of the underlying cause. Other helpful herbs are burdock root, cleavers and self heal.
