forgive me but I am just so tired & upset. I have 3 kids 8yr old(boy), 5yr old (boy) and a 2 yr old (girl) . My 5 yr old was diagnosed with several (sever) food allergies at 6mth old and had eczema pretty bad on mostly his feet and ankles. He out grew it about the same time he started walking and now has a few flair up behind his knees.. No big deal...On the other hand, My daughter ,2yr old has just one known food allergy but horrific eczema pretty much everywhere. She doesn't sleep well because she wakes up scratching & hurting. From morning to night scratching and crying in pain....it itches mommy! I have been to doctors ..several and to the allergist...been through several creams and other stuff....well we can't stand the steriod creams because they burn...but we saw the allergist again today and told her I'm at the end of my rope...so we are going to try the steriod cream one more time...cultivate cream 5% moderate steroid...we put it on her and she just cried..sayin it burns...my heart broke. I can't stand seeing her in pain. It just kills me.
