My doctor insists that my 2 yr old has it but it seems to be all over his body except for his back, feet and hands. He breaks out w/ a rash then itches all the time. Doc gave me a cream to put on it but it doesn't seem to help. Also it seems like he breaks out more when we are outside- it's not heat rash.
It's almost like he is allergic to something outside.
I put tons of lotion on him throughout the day and have cut out bathtime as much as possible. I have thought about giving him benedryl for the itching but gosh, I don't want to give him meds like that every day.
I have changed his laundry soap to a free/clear.
Also, every website pictures I find w/ eczema they never come close to what his does.
