..but thankfully it was just a dry round patch of eczema. We had him at the doctor's, and I was worried because lotion wasn't making it go away, and it was about half an inch in diameter. We bought Gentle Naturals Eczema cream, and after just three applications his spot is already clearing up! I guess Johnson's baby lotion isn't really that great. Caleb's got really dry skin like I do.

Question: Can I use this cream all over his body as a lotion? Or just on the bad spots, and use regular lotion for the rest of his body?

M has bad bad exzema, he gets multiple huge spots if we dont stay on it. They're mostly on his tummy, chest or back (and sometimes on his poor tushy) We use Aveeno eczema lotion on his trunk area and then if we want him to smell good we use other stuff on his legs bec/ hes never had a spot on his legs before.

For the spots themselves we use a steroid cream the doctor gave us

I've never tried that kind of lotion, but I do use Aveeno Baby eczema cream all over Lily. Even the regular Aveeno Baby extra moisturizing lotion does a great job of keeping the eczema at bay. J&J products don't mix well with Lily's skin but they work fine on Abri.

I don't know about using that particular cream all over Caleb's body - but I've found that the regular Johnson and Johnson lotion is useless! It is like the regular bath and body stuff- smells great but provides no moisture. We use Aveeno baby on Jed...and sometimes eucerin or aquaphore if he seems really dry.

I hope Caleb's skin is smooth soon!

I'm guessing that's what Liz has, dry, rough, slightly red roundish patches on the backs of her legs. We used aquaphor and it helped. Don't know about the lotion all over though.

I get those patches too...and was told by one dr that it was ring worm, and another dr that it was excema. Anyways, Kinley and Karysn get them too. Karsyn gets them on her butt/back/legs, Kinley gets them on her arms, I get them on my arms, hands and legs. I have a prescription for some cream that I apply to the area and it clears it up within a few days. If I don't put the cream on it, it will get really red and infected looking. I've never tried any of the lotions, the dr just told me to put some of the antibiotic cream on it

You can use the cream all over as long as it's not a steroid. Steroid creams should only be used on the patches themselves. Vi and Lily both have super sensitive skin (although Vi more so) and eczema. We use California Baby Calendula cream on them and it clears up. And I put aquaphor on them sometimes as well.
