  • You might try going casein free as well. I know dairy can be a big trigger. How are you treating it?

  • Have you tried the Baby eczema cream with Baby Winnie the Pooh on it? It worked for my son. We had to use a steroid cream too..

  • Use cortizone cream, its made to treat eczema, this is the time of year that a lot of babies will get eczema, just don't use fluctisone (not sure if spelling is right) its prescribed by the doctor but 1 of the side effects is burning, my dd would cry everytime I put the fluctisone cuz her skin was burning, but cortizone is great no burning just relief, gl

  • My Daughter has exzema and the doctor told me not to let her sit in the tub too long during a bath and that if at all possible a shower would be better. Also a good fragrance free lotion would be good to try too like Curel. Benedryl also helps some with the itching.

  • I think you are on the right track about diet. I am a distributor for a company that has a detox product to rid the body of toxins and heavy metals. This can be done by drops given 3 times a day in water or juice. Can also be used topically. completely safe for him. all natural. message me if interested.
