awe so not cool!!! aquafour, I think that is how you spell it...anyways...I love that lotion!!! It works so darn good for us. I have eczema and so does my son and it is so hard to treat but this stuff works wonders!!!! We used aveeno on my daughter when she was a baby--used the oatmeal bath I think (again 9 years ago--wee foggy on it) because of her dry patches!! But my son and I have it so bad.
But on the other note sorry for this miserable lady wrecking your day. try not to let it get to you.
I use Eucerin on Elise and it works really well and if you do get a scrip from your doc my guess they will give you a low dose of steriod cream( I had to use it on Elise)
And i do think that lady was out of line
Well I think that lady is a witch Erica, don't listen to her, in fact, I would say something to her, maybe make a comment on how the wrinkles on her face look like bee stings...sorry, I'm so mean! but seriously, what she is doing is wrong and she needs to be repremanded for talking out of turn by a director or someone who handles these types of matters.
I use Burt's Bees Baby Lotion and it works like a charm! It soaks into the skin instead of sitting on top of it, it makes skin feel so soft and supple, takes away the redness and it smells good too! If the other stuff doesn't work I would highly recommend trying this stuff, it works!
maybe i shouldve tried the eucerine before i called the dr. but she said at ehr 4 month to call back if it gets worse. and its pretty bad now
o yea..the lady said "it looks like she has welts on her face" umm excuse me! WELTS?!?!?! how on earth does dry skin look like welts????
I've battle a severe case of eczema with A.J for a month now.. The Demeratologists are the ones taking care of his problem, not the peds.. My advice is use a steroid cream as a last resort.. I'd save your money and not buy Eucerin, but either by a jar of Cetaphil or Vanicream.. Or better yet, at night when you put her down to sleep.. Coat her dry areas with Patrolem Jelly.. Just avoid the eyes and the mouth.. Patrolem Jelly is what's in Aquaphor but twice as strong.. Compare the labels.

Oh and I can understand why your upset.. Did you know the daycare called Infection Control on my son? It was because he had a really bad case of cradle cap and it was oozing clear yellow liquid for almost a month.. I had to get a note from the doctor saying it was not contagious.. What got me upset was why not talk to me about it.? Oh well.. Oh and it was the Dermatologists that was able to fix my sons poor head.. This was one of the reasons why I went to a Dermatologist because I wasn't getting any answers from the Pediatrician..
I have a port wine stain birthmark under my left eye. My entire life people have asked me if it's a black eye. I even had a doctor ask my mother to leave the room and ask me if I was abused when I was a kid. It used to really bug me but now I just see it as people expressing their concern for me. The only ones that bug me now are the people who don't let it drop after I explain that it's a birthmark. I actually had one lady give me a card to a battered womens shelter "for when I stopped lying to myself and was ready to get help".
I think that even that woman though was trying to do something good for me. In her own misguided way. Is it possible that the woman in your daycare might think that there really is abuse going on? I would be furious if someone suspected my baby was being abused and kept quiet. Even if it turned out that there was nothing going on.
