My Claire age almost 3 has bad eczema. The doctor just prescribed dermasilk under clothing for her to wear to bed and around the house.
It comes in the mail in a couple days.
Just curious if anyone ever used them and were the results good?
She also said that I should keep the temperature in our house at at no higher than 16, that is around 60F .... I think that is really cold! The doctor said kids with eczema get hot easy and sweat is bad.
What are your thoughts? Do you keep it cold all day or only at night for example.
I want to help her eczema but I hate the idea of freezing my butt off but if it will help I will do it.
Edit to add what we have and are doing now for her eczema.
Showers only when needed.
No perfumes, dyes etc in shampoo, soap, and laundry soaps.
she take a cortisone cream daily but is off it on weekends. prescribed by doctor
She takes an antihistamine at night prescribed by doctor
5 times or more a day we apply a fatty cream that was prescribed by doctor.
She only wears cotton fabrics.
We took her to a holistic doctor but it did not work out.
She also get's rescue remedy at night.
