And your bath wash is fine. You just want something that's gentle but which will still clean fats and sugars (from milk) away. Dry thoroughly. Apply creams three times a day, extra barrier cream as needed.

Sorry, after all that I just saw you got a positive PO diagnosis! I was going to delete my post but I thought I would leave it up in case it helped someone else.
We use Elidel for POD. We've found we need to moisturise the area as well, I just use an aqueous base cream.

Went to a different (better imo) doctor as it started to spread. She has a few patches on her arms & legs, all over her chest and neck. It's eczema

Picture from yesterday. The worst it's ever been after trying a new cream 😔
It's calmed down a lot since then thankfully I feel lost and scared dealing with this.
I changed back to sensitive wash and done all her clothes. Still so much to rewash.
Scared to give her solids as something could trigger it. I hate seeing my poor baby's face looking so painful.

I used to suffer from eczema and went to see a naturopath and was found to be lacking certain vitamins.
Im not too sure what age bubs needs to be before seeing a naturopath, but it may be worth finding out? FWIW i was low on zinc with aids in skin repair etc and have kept my eczema at bay for years
