does your LO's skin return to normal? I think it takes Toby about 2 weeks of intensive cortisone/moisturizer applications, and 2 baths a day when possible before he really gets back to a non-itchy normal. He has a couple of spots left, but man, his skin is looking and feeling soo good! (knock on wood!) We were broke out for like a month I think!

What is non-itchy? Nathan never not itches. No matter what we do. He will literally dig the insides of his elbows and backs of his knees until they are on the verge of bleeding...not even applying hydrocortisone or fluocinide helps at times....it's so frustrating!

aaw poor thing! It really helped toby's worst spots to dress him in footed pajamas all day so he couldn't get to them. Especially in the bad areas, before I zipped it up, I put some extra cortisone and then lotsa crisco so it could stay nice and moist, then zip him up. He still tried to scratch but couldn't get to it as well. The nightly zyrtec helps a lot too, I think. When we was really broke out at first we did benadryl; but once it started getting better, the zyrtec is a better maintenance. getting off topic, sorry!

poor thing. I vaguely remember the allergist mentioning if zyrtec didn't work or if we couldn't get him under control there's like a next step up nightly med. I can't remember the name of it; have you heard anything like that?

Hmm...I haven't but he goes back for allergy testing again on Oct. 20th so I will have to remember to ask the allergist about that. He has now started digging on his chin...just under his lip...I think I have it narrowed down to chocolate though now...he had chocolate milk for breakfast and then started itching behind his knee and under his lip so I'm going to see if I can have them add chocolate to the testing.
