Thank you for replying!
I took my daughter to Royal Children because the eczema spread to her right eyelid. The poor girl's eyes was swollen!
As the eczema is wet and weeps (it's already infected with bacteria), the doctor prescribed antibiotics. He advised us to use Sigmacort to control the flare-ups and Dermeze for mosturizer. We supposed to use the antibiotics and Sigmacort for 5 days, then we have to stop.
My wife and myself decided to follow the doctor's direction for 5 days. If this fails, I think I am going to try using wet compress.
I had eczema on my forearm once around 8-9 years ago, and I managed to cure myself using the wet compress method. Basically I prepared a bucketful of lukewarm water with 2-3 drops of tea tree oil. Then I wrapped a towel which had been dipped into the water around my limbs and have it compressed for 10-15 minutes. I did this for 2-3 times a day, and saw result within 2 weeks. Within a month my eczema was gone.
Thing is, I haven't tried this on my daughter. I just remembered how I did cure myself by chance, and I am sort of beating myself for not remembering sooner!
I'll keep you posted, and thanks for making time!
