I still have my 18 month old on toddler formula, and she's had persistent eczema on her legs and on her back right below her shoulders since she was a baby. The doctor said she's probably allergic to milk protein.
At this point I like the nutritional benefits of the formula, and would just prefer to treat the eczema a little longer. The thing is, the pediatrician said really the best way to treat it is to keep her as moisturized as possible with something thick and sticky like aquaphor or vaseline. Which means applying it multiple times a day. And it is one of the only things that really helps that much so far.
But it doesn't last very long, and I'd rather have something that I can put on it that clears it up almost completely, if possible, and lasts longer.
Anyone have any experience with this?

when my son had it, I use to bath him with olive oil in the water, also rub olive oil on the areas, plus not use laundry detergent with perfumes in it
