    Default Baby has itchy skin/scalp

    My 21 month old daughter has always had an eczema problem with dry skin and scalp. I have used Aveeno and lately have been using Dermeze ointment.
    From the last few days she has been scratching her feet and scalp (her hair is now growing into little curls)a lot more than she has ever done. She wakes up multiple times at night just to do that. Ca you please advise on
    1. any better cream for dry, eczema prone skin.
    2. Any oil that I can use on her scalp(apart from baby oil)
    3. A good body wash and Shampoo

    Can it be related to any other issue? Like teething, allergies, or blood problems?

    Thanks in advance.

    My son has really bad eczema and we find QV products work really well with minimal irritation, I particularly like the bath oil as it seems to help keep a little more moisture in his skin. I'm not sure what treatment/prevention methods you use but we have found wet wraps really help when he has bad flare ups, feel free to message me if you want any more info 😊

    My daughter had really bad cradle cap when she was younger. I know it's not the same as eczema but she did have a dry scalp and I struggled to remove the cradle cap. Eventually I was recommended to use Egozite cradle cap lotion before a bath and then Mustela bebe foam shampoo in the bath. It worked really well for DD.

    I just saw the paediatrician this week for my son's 6 week check and her advice for cradle cap was olive oil or coconut oil. I hope this helps
