My 2 year old was diagnosed with excema after living in a mold infested rental home. We've since moved and his rash cleared up completely except for a few patches on his head. On Mardi Gras day he was outside all day and my DH didn't keep up with the sunscreen. Christian came home very sunburned on his cheeks and nose. Well the next day the sunburn made his excema flare up horribly. Now he looks like he has an acid burn on his face, it's horrible. I am putting his excema lotion on it, but it really needs hydrocortisone. Only I'm afraid to use it since the skin is also sunburned. Any advice, besides smacking my DH?

The best I can say is call the doctor and ask. I haven't had to deal with bad sunburns yet so I don't know for sure. Aloe might be a good start though.

id stick to aloevera until the burns ease a bit. Aloe is also good for eczema so it should n't irritate it, it wont make it go away though but will help the burn heal faster and the eczema stay hydrated until the sunburn clears
