My 5 yr old son has eczema and recently it has flared up. And, its BAD! It's never been this bad before. Usually, its only on his hands and arms, but now its all over his body, from him nose down to the bottom of his feet and everywhere in between. I gave him the antihistamine his dr prescribed and the ointment. But, it doesnt seem to be helping him. He is still itchy and says his skin hurts. The ointment can only be applied twice a day and the antihistamine, only 4 times a day. What can I do in between ointment applications? I've tried vaseline, which helps a little, but only for a short amount of time. Just seems like nothing is helping and I feel so bad for the little guy. He is very active and loves to play and go outside, but we live in Houston and its close to 100 degrees outside, so he's cooped up inside and just so miserable. Sorry for the long post, just need to vent!
Thanks for listening (reading)! :)
