It seems like I have tried everything, Baby Aveno, Baby Oil, etc, and nothing helps. Its excemza and I dont want to resort to the corticosteriod cream that his doctor recommended. Any suggestions??

i wouldnt recommend tee tree based things as i suffer from excema and ive tryed it and it stings (and babys skin is more sensitive) and it is a very strong smell for a baby probably too strong..

I had the same problem and then I tried Johnson and Johnson's Bedtime with Lavendar and that worked great for my daughter..

@Leah Hannaburg...it is enhanced by allergies...milk, eggs, etc will make it worse. My son was 18 months and I had to quit giving him eggs, my daughter ate nothing but dairy last summer at grandma's house and hers was to the point of bleeding...

Mary Kay Exra Emollient Night Cream...works wonders! I have been using it on excema since my daughter was 14 months old... it also helps diaper rash. =)

we use johnsons soothing naturals protect balm. It a very small stick but last FOREVER. its clear and no one will notice it on your little ones face. On realy bad days we also use the penington cream at night where he cant wipe it off

This will sound crazy but try bum cream on yr baby's skin. I use penaten (not sure of the spelling) and it seems to be working on my son's skin issues. He has dry, red patches of what we believe is excemza. If that doesnt work, they sell something call spectra excemza for kids...i use the too.

Both of my children suffer with eczema and I use the cortisone cream (prescription strength) and then on top of that I use the cocoa butter vasoline lotion. I found that this works better than anything recommended by the doctor and is much cheaper than all that fancy lotion. The vasoline lotion in itself works wonders when used regularly!

my 2 year old used to get patches of it and my doctor recommended Doublebase cream and Doublebase shower cream, it's fantastic. Take your baby to the doctor to see what they think but I did also have to a steroid cream too.

my some suffers from excema and i tryed everything to get rid of it but in the end when it flares up i have to use corticone cream i use as minimal as possible then after the once it clears up quiet well then i use 100% emu oil which is great and QV cream..the emu oil keeps it under control until we have a hot day.. but nothing would get rid of the excema except the corticone cream.
