Wits end with eczema


Cruzs eczema just won't clear up ino it doesn't go away but it literally is always flared up

This was him before using the steroid cream then after a few days it's completely cleared up the day after we stopped using it it came back like this



Dr gave me a different steroid cream with antibiotic in called fucidin h
I used it last night he woke up like this looks worse to me



We're using epaderm to I have no idea what to do I put him in mittens last night I'm sure that's made it worse to must of been rubbing his face . I'm at my wits end X

Poor little guy. He is gorgeous by the way. I believe that eczema usually has a cause. Finding the cause can be easier said than done but its worth a try. Does he have any other symptoms of a possible milk allergy? Or it could be something he comes in contact with. Is i5 only on his face?

We trialed a week of prescription milk but the dietician said she didn't think it was that as t cleared up but I was using steroid cream and it came back when I stopped the cream so I was told to go back to forumla I can't think of anything that he only has contact with on his face . Thank you he's such a happy baby and I hate knowing its probably hurting him X

Do you wash your clothes in the same detergent you use for his clothes? DS gets a rash on his face when his grandparents come to visit because of his face getting against their clothes when he has cuddles.

If its just on his face I supose try and think of.anything his face regularly comes in contact with. Like the sofa, bedding etc and if you use a different product on anything.

A week isnt very long to trial no dairy. You might see some improvement but you wouldnt expect it to be totally gone in that time.

Hope you work it out soon.

Did you try a probiotic? Sometimes skin irritations start in the gut and when working on that can see an improvement from the outside if that makes sense. I plan to start one with our lo soon but not for the same thing. They have infant ones. Also with the dairy, I don't think they have to show all the symptoms for it to be that, although they might be right and it might not be the culprit here. I went off dairy for our lo because she was always irritated nursing and would just scream for hours at night. I went off dairy and she only started to improve in a week but it took a few to see it all leave. I think things like dairy can affect kids in different ways. I'm so sorry you are still dealing with that.. I know it must be so frustrating

Poor baby..
I'm far from an expert with eczema but before getting pregnant with Isabelle I stated suffering with it on my boobs! Would flare up horrible particularly on one, didn't have it anywhere else. The doctor prescribed me
Steroid creams that took it away but each time I stopped it would come back worse if anything... Also tried all the normal over the counter creams that didn't seem to do much. In the end I just used a very small amount of hydrocortisone cream and slowly stopped then just left it. It cleared eventually with no cream. Felt like all the creams were making it worse in the end. Does it get really bad without creams? Maybe try leaving it and just keeping anything that could irritate away and see how it goes.. prob completely wrong just thought would mention my experience incase it helps, hope cruz is eczema free soon xxx

I'm sure you are using silcocks base for to wash him ect ? I use it on my little boys face twice a day , morning and evening as a moisturiser . He has dermatitis and it really helps relieve the dryness and discomfort . Its not medicated so can be used as necessary

My now 3 year old had severe excema from 8 weeks, I was breast feeding and so the Drs suspected a milk allergy, after me excluding milk from my diet and not much change he was referred to the dermatologist. After lots of begging, the dermatologist agreed to refer for allergy tests, at 10 months old he was diagnosed with an egg, wheat and milk allergy. Once I stopped breast feeding, the excema went, we still get the odd patch and use dermol 500 in the bath, diprobase to keep his skin soft and if it flares we have hydrocortisone and eumovate. Hope this helps, it's awful when your baby has excema and you can't do much to help. Xxxx

Does he take a probiotic? We tried my daughter on 4 different Kinds and after each she broke out in horrible eczema patches. I think she had what's called histimine intolerance as a few probiotic strains are supposed to cause a reaction.
