  • Use Dove soap and put Dove lotion on when you get out of the shower. Sometmes the perfume in the soaps and lotion can set it off. Other than that, just itch medicine.

  • You can use hydrocorazone cream 1% don't use it on his face but the rest of his body is fine and do that for a week 2X a day and rub it in good. My 15 month old DD has the same problem and that's what her doctor told us to use on her and it works great. Even if it clears up before the week is up cont. useing it.

    Hope that helps you.

  • Ivory soap and Aquaphor lotion. That stuff works awesome for Eczema. My son gets Eczema and when he was a toddler, the doc gave me some steroid cream and it burned his face, so I tried Aquaphor and it cleared it up better than the steroid cream with no burning. Also, Aquaphor works great on chapped lips.
