OHH my poor babys skin!!!

OK so my DD is 2 1/2 and has such baaaad skin. Right now all over her butt and lower back has this bumpy rash. She isn't complaining about it They look like pimples and i have tried so many different things. I have tried Aquaphor, Hemp lotion, Regular Lubraderm, Johnsons, Body butter from message warehouse, Aveno, like everything I can think of. Everytime I bring her to the Dr. about it they always say it's Ok just put lotion on it. Like I said she's not complaining but really. I don't want to put a pic because it's on her butt and I can't on the answers anyway but still.Any momma's have any ideas? I apprecate it!!!!

  • It sounds like my daughters eczema. She gets it on her lower back down to her butt if I don't treat the patch right away. We use prescription cortisone. I would take her into the doctor for them to look at!

  • I'm going through the same thing with my four year old. It doesn't bother him, but it never goes away, either. I have tried everything, including hydrocortisone, which he said burned. I felt really bad that it hurt him.

  • Anon thank you I have tried that lol. It made it go away for maybe the day. Again thank you. But I took her to the Dr and they said just put lotion or cream on it no biggie. That's what her brothers have too(my stepsons) they get it from their daddy.

  • It sounds like eczema. Bathe her in Aveeno unscented Oatmeal wash and rub hydrocortisone on the area where she is broken out. My husband and daughter both have serious eczema, my husband actually has a steroid cream to put on his because it is so bad..
