  • ...and when I say right after a bath, I mean RIGHT after...I pull him out, give him a quick pat down with a towel and then smear him and wrap him back in the towel before he gets his diaper and pjs on.

  • My son has eczema, he's having a flair up now too. Ped told us to smear him with vaseline right after a bath to seal in the moisture and then keep him moisturized with Eucerin the rest of the day. If you can up the humidity in your house that would help too...

  • My 2 DDs have Eczema too, and that's what we do. However, if it's a dermatitis allergy, you can get corisone shots from the dr. until the rash goes away.
