My dd keeps itching the back of her neck...

She's 4 months. There isn't a rash or bumps or anything, just redness from her itching it...I've tried aquaphor but it doesn't seem to help...any ideas? She just keeps reaching back there and scratching...

  • My son scratches his ears a lot, he has exima , (spelled wrong hope you get the idea). Sometimes he doesn't have anything there either, not even when he has a full body break out, I have has several meds from the doctor before finding one that works, it is a body oil called Fluocinolone Acetonide 0.01% of Derma-smoothe/fs. Don't let the name scare you its wonderful. Ask your doctor if your daughter has the condition my son has, if so ask for this oil as you can only get by rx, You won't regret using it. It is even safe to use in the hair if she gets really bad cradle cap.

  • My daughter is always scratching at her ears, back of her head, and neck. She's now taken to scratching her feet, her tummy and her junk. She also scratches me and everything else she touches. She's particularly fond of the bills on hubby's hats (they've all got scratch marks now). She's got nothing wrong with her, she just likes her new arm waving, hand scratching skills. If you notice any bumps, swelling, bruising, or bleeding, I'd call the pedi but for now she might just like testing her newfound ability. :)

  • ktot2009 I think you might be right - now that I think about it she also likes to "scratch" her toys and her boppy and the couch, etc...I will keep an eye on it but I think you're on to something! :)
