have you tried the Wet Wrapping Technique?
It consists of applying wet wraps or garments and ointments on dry itchy skin.
See the following YouTube video for more details:
Try our Natural Olive Baby Bottom Butter, contains Organic Essential oil of Chamomile and Vanilla. Works wonders on dry skin, bums and Eczema! All Natural ingredients.
My son is 6 now, hes been having is since he was about 1 year old. its gotten better through out the years. he doesnt get it as bad now but i bath him with special body bath soap and after i always but lotion for the eczema.
My daughter is one and is covered in eczema. We got nowhere with the GP so went private today (my husband has health insurance through his job).
Unfortunately the private dermatologist said exactly the same as the GP. Just lots of greasy creams and steroid creams.Very disappointed.
I suffered eczema for years until I had a allergy test and found out that my skin reacted to a lot of household chemicals (cleaning fluids,washing powder etc). Now I avoid the chemicals that Im allergic to and it is 95% better. Unfortunately they will not do allergy test on children until they are 3.
A cortizone shot should clear it right up (not sure if they're safe for babies).
I have had eczema all my life and mine is all over over my body.
Alot of the creams prescribed by the doctors didn't really work but I found one myself called Aveeno which works wonders for my skin.
It is expensive to buy but I have it on prescription from my doctor.
Hope this helps
