    * Only use products like alpha keri oil in the bath. All of the other 'baby' bath products make our children's skin worse.

    * Keep him moisturised.

    * Try to only buy breathable clothing for your child, ie. no large plastic pictures on the front, or plasticy materials

    * Keep to cottonish sheets and blankets. Avoid wool.

    My dd started getting awful eczema at 6 months. I used moo goo.. turn realized that the ezcema was probably related to cmpi which she is.
    So I used QV bath oil.
    And this is weird but I would rub cocoa butter bottom butter and qv moisturizer together in my hands. And rub it all over her. On the bad bits I would just use the bottom butter. It worked a treat. I also used hydrocortisone cream when I was particularly bad.

    Moo Goo in the bath (we use the milk wash) and also Moo Goo Shampoo and Conditioner

    Sensitive washing powder (Omo seems to agree with our kids)

    Dermeze ointment moisturiser is also really good

    We avoid baby products like johnsons and johnsons like the plague!

    Oh and only dressed her in cotton and let her be naked if I could. Also make the bath quite cool.

    We've had 6 teeth in 6 weeks & I think the teething has made it worse... Has anyone else found this?

    My DS's trigger was dry heat. So instead of putting the heater on in winter we all just rugged up. Light, breathable fabrics and not too many layers. The paed told me that most babies need one more layer than what an adult would wear, DS needed one less. I just got used to the dirty looks from people when he was out in the cold in a long sleeved t-shirt
    MooGoo helped here too, as well as QV lotion. I would apply qv 2-3 times per day, and moogoo after a bath.

    This was the only thing that would clear it up for dd. Now that it's very mild and occasional, I use sudocrem and that tends to clear it up.

    Organic coconut oil. Fixed it up in a month or so - it has since only come back once
