My 2 year old was just diagnosed with Eczema after about 2 long months of scratching herself raw(bleeding). The pediatrician recommended Aquafor (made by Eucerin) 2 times a day in the morning and in the evening. Also, she gave us a topical steroid cream to use at night before the Aquafor, and a prescription for a Hypoallergenic Hydrating Lotion named Hylira. Overnight I saw a huge improvement, and now within 2 days even better. The pediatrician said that I would only need to use the steroid cream during a breakout. I hope this is good info, because I know that this is a very frustrating battle to heal. Someone also recommended to bath my child at night, then get them out of the tub and while still damp cover them with vaseline. Take a pair of footed one piece pajamas, get them wet with warm water, ring them out as much as possible, then place them on my daughter. Then wrap her in a towel and put a movie on for her until the pajamas cool down. This is supposed to be good for helping the vaseline absorb into the body.
