  • We used Dove Nutrium for sensative skin, All free and clear laundry detergent, Aveeno lotion, and Aquaphor for bad spots. Her eczema cleared up in a few weeks.

  • Our doctor prescribed us a cream for our daughter used it only when her rash got really bad. Sunlight also helps to clear it up.

  • Ask the doctor for a soecialized cream. My daughter had eczema from birth through age 2. Many of the lotions in the stores have alcohol in them, which is exactly what is not needed. Also, the best thing is a spot cream for the driest spots that has a higher level of hydrocortisone than you can get over the counter. Good luck, hopefully she will outgrow it.
