My son is 12,hes had psoriasis and eczema since he was 6months old.I dont think hes had a full nights sleep since then. He is the most itchy at night socks dont work he takes them off. We have tried hydroxixine,benedryl,and more .Is there any meds that he can take at night?He is currently on Concerta for ADHD wich i think is linked to being itchy all the time,the ADHD that is. .Anyone know of anything it would be greatly appreciated.

I give my sona dose of benadryl & he is able to sleep within a 1/2 hr. Before he falls asleep I coat his feet with vaseline so it has a chance to soak in while he is knocked out.

My sons 16 months and has never slept though the night. Because the Benadryl stoped working we are now on Hydroxyzine- works amazingly what we would of done without it. He is also on Desonide and Mometasone Furoate Ointment... But we arent really using them because they really arent working. I have found the Cetaphile cream works great. We use it everyday after bath and also in the morning before he gets dressed. Good luck

Dermarest has a great variety of over the counter treatments that may help. Most have salicylic acid in them that is good for the itching. Our family has severe psoriasis, so we try to find the stronger meds with coal tar, MG217 has a good variety of over the counter treatments. Hope this helps.

We've been told to use Hydrocortizone.. and it works awesome.. so far.. but my oldest with skin issues is almost 8.. and he doesn't take any other meds. Sometimes meds will cross each other out and not work or make things worse.. The pharmacist's is honestly the only person who is educated enough about meds together and meds all in all.. so I would ask them if there could be a problem between them all..

Hi Nicolle, the health and wellness company I shop from makes a scientifically formulated natural lotion that has been proven 7x more effective than other over the counter brands, for skin disorders like eczema and psorisis. Some customers have claimed thier children have had complete recovery just by switching over to using this amazing lotion! It shouldn't hurt to try, right? See our website for more information or please email me if you are interested in more information.

Hi Nicolle,

I have a friend who's son has ADHD and eczema, the only thing that really helped him was changing his diet and also taking herbal + homeopathic remedies for his hyperactive tendencies.

I believe that climate changes can be very beneficial too, although not always practical - regular trips to the seaside, sea-air + extra excersize (kite-flying + beachcombing perhaps) should help tire him out too!
