My little one was diagnosed with eczema at his 2 month well visit. The ped hopes the hydrocortisone clears it up with in 2 weeks but if not, we have to see a dermatologist. The poor peanut has patches all over his arms and legs and tummy. He has cradle cap, too. Just in time for Christmas he is a scaly mess.

Poor little guy A milk allergy often manifests as eczema so it's worth a shot to eliminate any milk protein from his diet ( yours if you are BFing.) Good luck!

I think it is a milk allergy. He's on the Similac Alimentum and tolerating it well. The ped is leaving him on it for now.

My little guys have all had that. One of the best things you can do is keep is skin hydrated. Only bathe him every other day (or less) and use lotion twice a day. Good luck!

You can make a strong mint and chamomile tea and bath him in it with no soaps. That will soothe the skin and take some of the redness out. Your can also add a few drops of lavender to a fragrance free lotion. This greatly helped DD1. Good luck!

Oh no. I hope it clears up with the cream. Riley had a spot on his face when he was about this age, but his cleared up using Cortizone twice a day.

DS2 has it too. We had to switch to dye and perfume free laundry soap. He had a steroid prescription for it, in cream form. It helped a lot. It finally calmed down at about one year of age. When it flares up now we just put hydrocortisone cream on it and it clears up pretty quickly. We also had to lotion him up a couple times a day. You can try Aquaphor too, but I don't like the feeling of it.

im sorry! ruby had it bad for awhile so i cut out dairy and soy from my diet and started using hydrolatum cream and eucerin wash and it cleared right up. i reintroduced dairy and she is fine with it, have not yet reintroduced soy as i figure it must be the culprit.
