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.
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!
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.
