  • Eczema! My son has the same thing, and it gets redder when he's in the bath. You can develop this at any time in your life. Try the new cortizone 10 plus Eczema cream, or in the baby section of target or walmart, you can get the baby exzema lotion that has a baby winnie the pooh looking bear on it. I find these work the best and they are steroid free. Other lotions tend to burn. Aquaphore is like vaseline, and that works great as well. I only use that when it's at it's worse then follow with the other cream when it subsides to help keep it under control.

  • Cortizone is a steroidal cream
