eczema - help!
My daughter had eczema as a baby ... always mild, never too bad. She had some around both ankles and a little patch on one elbow. Of course, if our pediatrician had actually read her chart, he might have felt differently about encouraging me to give her peanut butter at 19 months! (her eczema had been treated by two other pediatricians who had each later left this office, so this was our 3rd doctor there).
At any rate, her eczema seems to be returning. Not sure what this means ... is she devloping allergies to other things? We have obviously maintained a strict avoidance of peanut products/may contains, etc since her diagnosis 3 months ago.
So, does anyone know what this flare up might mean, and can anyone recommend a cream that might give her some relief. I have tried Mustela (terrible ... it made her itch until she bled) and Gentle Naturals (which doesn't seem much better). Maybe putting nothing on it is the key?!
Thanks for "listening"
