  • Does it ever feel dry or scaly, or seem redder at some points than others? It ALMOST looks like DD's eczema. We have to use a steroid cream for her. You might try the Aveeno creams, or a soap and lotion made for mild eczema, just to see if that helps. If it doesn't go away, spreads, or gets worse looking, take her back in. You might also (if it seems like it comes and goes) keep a journal of foods and soaps, lotions etc that she has contact with. Eczema (the kind DD has) is often caused by an allergic reaction to something. Sometimes keeping a log of contact can help you pinpoint potential causes, making the doctor's job easier.

  • DD also gets those patches on her feet- one just cleared up, it was the size of a quarter.

  • Have you tried an over the counter medicine like Benadryl? It comes in a spray for the skin. There is also a children's liquid for taking internally for allergies to various things. She could be allergic to any number of things.
