    Default Eczema baby

    My poor 4 month old DD has eczema to differing degrees pretty much all over her body. My DS has never even had a nappy rash so this is all new to me. I want to ask other mums how they manage their child's eczema?

    We have been prescribed mild steroid creams and I am using Cetaphil moisturising cream. What products do you use? How do you control the itch? DD scratches at her chest and back of her head the most. She sleeps in a love to dream swaddle so she can't scratch during the night. If I put mittens on her, she sucks on them and then having the wet material against her face makes the eczema worse.

    Any advice/tips would be GREATLY appreciated

    hello there, sorry to hear about your baby's eczema. but have faith you can beat eczema. i, myself has been experiencing eczema in my both hands. i put sudocream on it and it relieves the itchiness somehow. i have also found this one http://eczemafreetips.com and did wonders too. but always consult your doctor before engaging into new methods in treating eczema. i am sharing this one as it may help you ease the pain. i hope this one also works for your baby. have faith and Godbless!

    Hi Baibee, sorry to hear about your DDs eczema, it sucks

    Check out the QV range available at pharmacies for moisturisers and body washes etc. they even have an intensive range which is good but can feel a bit greasy. Have you considered wet wrapping? Did your doc explain it to you?

    Try dressing in cotton and layering as heat can make it worse. Don't put her in wool clothes esp cardigans as it makes it more itchy.

    HTH and good luck, eczema is tough!

    Are you breastfeeding? Dairy in my diet was a trigger for my son's eczema, and i was able to reduce the eczema by eliminating dairy. I think he has other diet triggers, but i'm still trying to work them out.
