    Default Bubs itchy ears

    My DD is 3 months old and has what I -think- could be eczema behind her ears. She's been grabbing them trying to scratch making herself bleed.
    What have you found to work? I have been putting sorbolene on them but it doesn't seem to be doing anything. I was looking at the aveeno baby range, is this any good?

    Default Bubs itchy ears

    If they are quite bad you may need a low dose steroid to help it heal and then you can keep it moisturized with a good quality cream. I found Caroline's cream to be good for us but it depend on you bubs eczema triggers. Caroline's cream is made from natural products and that can be a bad thing for some eczema sufferers. I've spent a fortune trying different creams and at the end of the day it's trial and error. I would take your bub for a visit to the gp first though for a look and diagnosis. Good luck.
