Just wondeing if anyone has found a link between allergies and excema for their own kids? All the other Moms I have spoken to who have/had kids with excema have said that allergies were a major trigger for the skin condition.
I am trying everything for my 13 month old son and am getting very frustrated. We went to a pediatric dermatologist who basically said he would grow out of it and to use the hydrocortisone cream. I have tried a few formulations of the cream and each one just makes the excema that much worse. I am now trying the Spectro Gel Excema for kids cream, an antibiotic cream like Polysporin for the open sores and Vaseline.
My son HATES getting his creams put on and cries so hard. It makes my heart break and I am trying to find anything that will help heal this up.
