Hi everybody, I'm new to the group. I have a 2 year old daughter who has recently gotten a nasty persistent rash behind her knees. Red, rough, scaly, and itchy. I've tried food elimination, coconut oil, and lavender oil.I've tried changing her soap, washing everything she owns, and frequent/less frequent baths. Anybody have any suggestions?? I just don't want her to be itchy anymore and I'm out of ideas. Please/Thanks!

Eczema?

If it's a food allergy it may take some time to see any results. How long have you been trying to find a remedy and how long are you sticking to each possible remedy?

It may be time to take her to a skin doctor- dermatologist.

Sounds like eczema, take her to the doc, have you tried hydrocortisone cream? There is a lotion from curel that is for eczema that treats the itch.

Welcome! I'd take her to a dermatologist to determine what's up. Good luck. :)

i'd take her to the doctor. have you tried soaking her in an oatmeal bath. aveeno makes a soak. i would do that for ds when his skin would get very dry and irritated. also good lotion

Oatmeal bath. Has her doctor recommended anything?

Desitin diaper rash cream. The maximum strength one that is 40% zinc. It works wonders on any rash and sunburns.

eczema, try hydrocortizone cream,  nothing but Tide for clothes, Basis soap for baths and johnsons baby shampoo for hair, thats what helped me in flareups before i found Melaleuca 7 years ago, and havent had a flare up since. I have dealt with eczema since i was an infant.

That's what I would guess... that is a common place for it
