ok, i have taken my 1 yr old to the dr many many times(probaly about 7) for the weird rash he has all over his body!!! the first 6 drs said it was a normal thing babies go through and there was nothing i could do!!! the last dr i took him too said it was exema..... they gave him steroid cream and oatmeal bath. its not working though!!! his rash looks like blisters that are bright red and he itches soooo bad!!! he wakes up about 4-7 times a night(at least...sometimes more) from itching so bad! its everywhere! from the top of his head to the bottom of his feet! he has a dermatologist appt in about a week and a half but i just wanted to know if maybe you mommys have ever delt with this or know of anything that might help him not itch!!!!Answer Question
Both of my daughters have eczema. I bought some some stuff from Bath and Body works called Mustela and it works wonders (they have lotion and body wash). I have tried everything (even stuff the doctors have prescribed) and nothing has worked. There's not anything that is going to cure eczema, but it will help with the itchiness. Also, Cetaphil lotion works really well.

Oh, and if they're really itchy I will give them Benadryl before bedtime, because they scratch in their sleep.

Some times less baths. Make sure you use natural soaps and body creams. I buy organic products for my babies. Some parents don't really take note to this but a lot of flare ups are because of what they eat. I watch the amount of dairy as well. Since they do like to scratch I keep my babies lightly covered. my youngest wears leggies they work well on arms and legs. Good luck Mama.
