Does anyone has a better recommendation for babies with Eczma?

forget going to the store and buying a skin care product off the shelf. Give them an oatmeal bath.(put about a cup of oatmeal in something that the water can get in and out of but the oats can't and let it soak in water 5 to 10 min.) also skip the body wash and wash the child with the oatmeal sock. I have had severe eczema break outs that prescription stuff would take months to clear where this method has cleared it in about a week and a half. (my skin was so bad I lost pigment in my skin temporarly)

I only use Melaleuca products the are the best for helping with ecxema as the laundry soap doesn't have harsh chemicals and Renew lotion heals the skin quickly. If the rash has broken out and the skin is red and inflammed dermacourt is another product they have that heals the rash. I can share with you how to order it at wholesale vs retail if you would like to know more just call or send me a message

There is this product at Nordstrom called "Noodle and Boo". My son had eczema on his legs, arms, head and even was spreading to his back and stomach. I tried the "Ultimate Ointment" from Noodle and Boo and the next night, it was clearing up.
I would suggest limiting how many baths they have per week -- not sure how old your kids are, but if they are less than 3 or 4, I would only bathe them once a week. Moisturize every day with a good lotion -- St. Ives' Restoring is good as is the others mentioned. Hydrocortisone will help with the itching and inflammation.

My son Zach (15 months) has slight Eczema, but me on the other hand I have severe eczema, so this is right up my alley. I have to stay away from anything with perfume! Soaps, lotions, laundry detergent, even if my husband wears cologne I am breaking out! When you give your little one a bath pat him down with a towel and put lotion on him right away. It helps soaking into the skin. I use Cetaphil on my skin and it helps soo much! I use it on my son it works wonders! Try to put lotion on him as much as you can! I wish you goodluck with this, it can be a hard thing to deal with! : )

Both our kids have it. We use Aveeno baby body wash every other or third day and rinse very well. I use Aquaphur or Eucerine lotion on them every day before bed. And when we wash their hair, it's triple rinses for the entire body to make sure all the soap is off.

My son and daughter both have it, my doc and my previous doc both recommended limited bathing. Everything is so harsh on their skin. So we do what I call poor man showers (wipe down with a wet wash cloth) every other night of the week and one bath a week in the winter and two in the summer. It's hard when they are young but also dove soap, and eucerin lotion. Good luck!

Aveeno bath - the baby formula - works well for my son, then our pediatrician recommended smoothing a thin layer of Aquaphor Ointment (they'll be slippery, be careful!) on them while they are still wet from the bath. You might also consider using a good humidifier in the house, or in their room(s) at night if you don't already.

ask your pediatritian if you can use hydrocortizone cream, i have it and so does my dad and that is the only thing that gives us any relief and it only costs a dollar at the dollar store! its cheap at walmart etc... also. good luck!

What do you use now? I normally use a mix of eucerin calming cream with a dab of .5% hydrocortisone cream (recommended by my pharamcist) it works when the eczema is getting bad. I do not use anything that has fragrance in it including laundry detergent and fabric softener. And give Aveeno oatmeal bathes weekly to keep it from flaring up bad. And mosturize daily. Hope that is helpful.
