eczema

My 4 month old has eczema and I saw that the topical cream at the store is expensive. Are there any at home treatments or ways to help her skin?

  • Try to avoid givinq that many baths. I use a aquaphor on my son for his dry skin, but the main ingredient is petroleum jelly, vasaline. It's relatively inexpensive. I don't know if it would help eczema, but maybe you could try that.

  • My baby had that sooo bad. I found the best thing for him was the SHEA BUTTER lotion from bath and body works in the blue bottle. There is nothing like it for curing that problem. Now my son has no issues at all. I definately recommend it.
