My son has had eczema since birth. He is 14 months old now. In the past two months I couldn't tell you how many times we have gone to the doctor. Don't ask about the money either. If you're on here, then you know. I would look at an old picture of my baby and start to cry. (it wasn't that bad then) I prayed and yes, it worked some but God only guides you, He doesn't do things for you. These are the best things that I've found that works: Bathing in EPSOM SALT-make sure that the salt dissolves completely before bathing, especially for a young one like mine.Something in the salt actually dries out your skin but in a good way. After bathing, rub CETAPHIL cream or VASALINE. The Cetaphil will only work for a little while depending on the severity, but keeping that Vasaline on it, locks in the mosture which is what you really want. The results from one day to the next, is like night and day. Cetaphil also makes a body cleanser that is very good. There are also some topical creams that are only available through RX: Desonide worked really well until allergy season kicked in.Its more like a lotion that you would apply a few times a day. The most recent we got has worked the best and is replacing the Desonide its called Triamcinolone Acetonide. Its more like a Vasaline consistancy which I prefer. Good luck to everyone.
