My son, 6, has eczema and asthma...I guess they go hand in hand. He's been hospitalized many times, but now only when he has a severe allergy reaction, usually once a year. First thing, how often do you give him a bath? I would only do it once or twice a week. sounds crazy, but its a must for his skin. my son just had his 6 yr check up and the doctor said he'd keep to that schedule still. once my son was 2 we put him on pulmicort used in his nebulizer- fall through the spring, taken twice a day to help build up his lungs. last summer he went all summer without one asthma problem. this fall we tried not to have him go on it at all and he was doing really well until January he was borderline pneumonia and the albuterol did not help him at all so he's on pulmicort again until summer. but this has worked wonders for him. get an allergy test, they can do a basic one from their blood now.
