thank goodness for summer
jhmotherof3 posted:
My little girl is 19 months old and she has Eczema. It started out looking like dry patches of skin, no redness no flacking but slightly raised rough spots on her stomach, back, and chin. Our pediatrician suggested when taking a bath to not let her sit in a tub of water but to just rinse her off. We have tried several different body washes and lotions. We recentlly started using Aveeno Baby soothing relief creamy wash (fragrance free) and follow up with Aveeno Baby Eczema Therapy moisturizing cream (steroid free). Since we have started these I can tell a major difference in her skin. I have several customers who have used the medicated creams on their children (10 days on 10 days off) they said it starts to thin the skin over a period of time, just one more thing to be concerned about so double checking with the pediatrician or pharmacist wouldn't hurt. It clears up during the summer months as well,winter is more harsh on their skin. I have even heard of people going to the tanning bed when their eczema really flares up.

Hi Jhmotherof3,

Thanks for the advice. I have used Aveeno Baby lotion in the past. As you said it's always best to check with your doctor first. I hope to see you around the Skin Problem Community more often.

Take care,
