Hi, My son suffers from eczema, has had it his entire life. He has responded well to certain creams, but after awhile, they stop working or start to burn and sting his skin. I have always used a product called CUTAR in his bath when his skin is bad, but have had a bad time lately with finding new creams. He is 8 years old and seems to be "sensitized" to most stuff out there.

We tried Dr. Bobby's skin care line and it has been fantastic. I am trying to not overuse it and alternate with another one that doesn't sting.
The website is Drbobby.com

we do 1% hydrycotorsone cream mixed with eucerin lotion. if his exczma is realy bad we get a percription for 2% hydrocortosone cream, and mix that, it works like a charm.

I didn't know people could get sensitized to the creams.
How much of hydrocortisone versus lotion do you use?

We try not to use too much steroid since over time, when used in the same area, it can lead to thinning of the skin and pigmentation changes of the skin in the area where it is used. These effects are likely dose dependent.
Every evening, we take a warm shower and then seal in the moisture with some vaseline. When done every evening, eventually the eczema has essentially cleared. That has worked well.

Hi AlwaysAvoidAnaphylaxis,
I have noticed some pigment changes in my son's skin. His legs have lighter colored splotches on them. Could you let me know where I might find more info on the pigment changes?
Thanks,
Edinview

Per my daughter's dermatologist, the lighter colored splotches are actually just old eczema spots that don't tan normally. Pigmentation changes from steroid tends to be darker colored skin.

My dd has been getting excema spots a lot lately when she hadn't for years. Could it be dry air? We got an outdoor woodburner for heat now so it might be dryer in here. Anyway we're using desonide now but I limit it to a very thin layer twice a day for only a week at a time. It makes me very nervous to use it at all.
