Welcome! I'm sorry you're dealing with eczema. If your doc didn't already mention it, be sure that you use unscented products to bathe her and to wash clothes (hers and yours). Our pedi recommended Cetaphil (and I learned on this board that the generics are just as good) for washing and the Cetaphil cream. He said the Dove mild or sensitive (can't remember now) is good for bathing, too. The vaseline does just as good a job as the Cetaphil cream, but can be a bit greasy. For laundry, we were already using All Free and Clear, Downy Free, and Bounce Free. Anything with lavendar flares up Alex, so we're especially careful to avoid those.

Food, stress, and heat can flare it up as well.
