  • For my daughter's eczema (sp?) we only ever used cortizone cream to stop the itching, then we'd cover her in Johnson & Johnson's Nourishing Milk Lotion. It always clears it up within a few days.

  • I have used it one my own children before and it contains a steriod base that helps the skin to heal faster for and the prescription never gave us any side effects however we did switch to the aveeno oatmeal cream anti-itch for my four year old and haven't seen alot of problems lately. You might want to try the aveeno products first as long as your baby is not allergic to oatmeal(it's main ingredient) I hope your baby feels better soon.

  • I wouldn't. ASk a pharmasist with a PharmD. He/she will now how safe it is. A lot of time skin problems are due to food intolerances.
