When my daughter was around 4 mths old she developed a bad rash on her face. After tons of frustration we discovered it was eczema. The doctor prescribed a steriod ointment along with regular use of vanicream (some kind of lotion). He told me if we had other reoccurances to use some hydrocortizone. She has not really had any flair ups until recently. We live in way south TX with high heat and humidity and just when temps started getting in the 90's i noticed her start to break out in a rash around her mouth and nose.
I at first thought it might have been eczema but the beginning stages of it and used a little bit of hydrocortozone but it did not do much. I then thought it was from dribble from a sippy cup at night so I started using some petrolieum jelly at night to help keep it dry and it kept it from getting worse but did not relieve it. Now I am thinking it might be eczema again. I have also tried a day or two with just coconut oil and it again does not make it better just makes it not get worse.
Help please! I cannot get rid of this rash! BTW it does not seem to bother her but it does get a lil more red or irritated after a meal or a bath. She is right at 20mths old
