My 3 month old has really bad eczema

My 3 month old has really bad eczema on his cheeks. I'm planning on asking his doctor, but until I get an appointment I was wondering if anyone had any tips on what has worked for you? Thank you in advance!

You can try Aquaphor. My son has mild eczema and it helps.

Aveeno Eczema gel worked well for my son. Good luck!

Thank you ladies. I have a little bit of aquaphor on there right now, but it's kind of old, so I'm not sure if it will work or not. I might try to pick up the aveeno though next time I run to the store. Thank you again!

Yes so did my daughter we bought a humidifier and run it nightly that really seemed to help. We also use aveno bath rub (as an extra we still use j&j) we also bought tri-derma eczema cream. That is what helped us.

Hazel wood is good for eczema. But exema is often a symptom of an allergy.

Is he breastfed or formula fed? Excema is a sign of a dairy, gluten or some other type of allergy.

probably caused by excessive drooling because he is probably teething by now.

Rub some Vaseline/petroleum jelly on his cheeks--it will create a waterproof/drool proof barrier and protect his skin.  It can also be used in the lower region to prevent diaper rash as well.
