I would advise against lotion. Lotions tend to irritate my DD's eczema. We use a few things...not all at once...rx steroid ointment when it's BAD, aquaphor, Vaseline, Crisco, OTC hydro-cortisone cream when it's flaring up, but not BAD yet...oatmeal baths, benadryl for the itching (keep in mind that my DD is 5, and although she has been taking benadryl as needed since infancy, we ALWAYS get the right dose from the doctor. I DO NOT recommend using benadryl unless specifically advised to by the doctor and given the proper dose)

Is the detergent free and clear? If not, try switching to a free and clear one. It MIGHT help. You could also bathe her a little more infrequently. Pat dry and IMMEDIEATLY cover all affected areas with something like vaseline/aquaphor to seal in the moisture. How bad is her eczema?
