Today I took my 18 MTH old daughter to the pediatricians for what we found out was a staph infection. After asking the doctor about how she could have gotten it, I showed him the most recent diaper rash we have been dealing with. He said her rash was eczema...and this was the first time it had ever been called that. She has had diaper rash issues since birth. They do appear as three distinct different types of rash, but the specific one has come and gone often recently. SO I am wondering if eczema and staph are related (Daddy has eczema and during one break out also was treated for a staph infection). She has been given an antibiotic.
Also I am interested in any reliable websites that offer solid information on eczema and what causes it. How can I prevent any break outs???
Thank you - Nichole Gibson
