I have a 2 3/4 year old daughter who has ecezma really badly. We have been to the dermatologist several times and nothing has worked. Does anyone have any remedies that have worked for them, I getting really anxious with this. Her skin looks horrible and I am afraid if this keeps up that her scratching will ruin her skin.

My daughter has terrible excema and after trying various elimination diets we have finally foun dout she is dairy intolerant. But although her excema at present is controlled I bath her 3 times a week in an oat bath. I put 1 cup of porriage oats in her bath water and she soaks in that for half an hour, I don't know what is in it but it seems to moisturize her skin 10x's better than anything else. I also wash her every morning with hydromol which is like vasoline and every-night htat she doesn't have an oat bath I bath her in oilutem. I also wash her hair in tea-tree shampoo which I get from the Holland and barratt. I would ask for a skin test to fin dout what your daughter is reacting too as then you can eliminate this and you should hopefully notice a difference with in 4 weeks of the allergen elimination

Two of my four children had eczema. It was quite bad and irritating. I researched it so much and came across an article about milk causing eczema in some individuals. As I researched more, we decided to stop drinking milk. As a result, none of my children currently suffer from eczema. It's been since January '13. We only use almond milk. Hope this helps.

Our eldest son had ecezma when he was little, mainly because of food allergies when he was little, removing the problem food of course helped greatly, but ecezma's root cause does not always relate to food allergies. The doctor told us to use QV Bath Oil and use QV Moisteriser Cream. When it was really bad we were also told to use a chemical cream, but this shouldn't be used for too long. I know that Paw Paw Cream works really well for some people, it didn't for Zac though. Sometimes it can be a particular soap, a bath wash or chemical you use around the house that causes the outbreak, it could even be the washing powder used - maybe you could try making a few changes in what you use and see if it helps. Most children seem to grow out of it as they get older so fingers crossed that this will happen for your little one.

 Take your child to the Allergist and the G.I. Specailist. 80 % of kids who have ecezma whave asthma. And Ecezma is also a sign of Milk allergies.



My 20 month old son was diagnosed with asthma, and allergies to soy and milk. He had ecezma and the only thing that helped it was a cream prescribed by the peditrican- just a hydrocortozone cream. But it didn't really help much. I asked the doctor for a referral to the specialist since my family has allergies to food I wanted to find out his before i ended up giving him something that could kill him. And he had chronic diarrhea for 4 months. They said he developed the milk allergy after getting the flu this spring and samonilla from the peanut butter outbreak  at the end of 2008. It attacked him milk and soy enzymes so no we need to put him on a soyfree milk free diet. He's been on it for 2 weeks now and his ezcema is starting to clear.



I don't know if this is any help to you but it's worth looking into since ezcema is a sign of other health conditions. My Peditrican never said anything to me about asthma nor allergies. And it never crossed my mind, no other signs until he had the diahhrea. good Luck I hope you find something that works.

Hey my daughter had eczema really bad. For a while it seemed like the medicine was working but only for a short while. I took a home remedy for diaper rash which was corn starch. I washed her dried her off really well then applied corn starch on the affected areas once the corn starch dried it up I wipe her arms and legs down and applied palmers co co butter. The dry skin is gone but she does have a few dark spots. Also the only soap being used on her skin is dove and she only gets washed once a day due to the water drying out her skin even more.. Hope this helps

My son has eczema as well he wil be 2 in November and the Dr has given us all type's of creams that have not worked I feel your pain. But I have tried some over the counter lotion it is called Eucerin cream. It is a real thick lotion that really does help. I had a friend who's son had Eczema real bad and she used it as well. Try it.. It does help.

I have a 3 year old who gets really bad eczema I use a few product that have got it complete under control. They are:
1. Dermeze ointment: it is made by the children hospital and can be used as many times as you want during the day. It acts like a skin moisturiser, and is completely safe. It doesn't matter if they decide to taste it, they will be fine. You buy it in a tub (150g or 500g) from the chemist.
2. QV Bath oil: revive - it is for dry skin and you add a cap full to the bath. It is also a moisturiser. The first time my son used this in his bath he didn't scratch and was completely relaxed. You can buy other QV produces; they also came from the chemist.
3. Hydrocortisone acetate cream: This is safe to use on the face as it has a low concentration (told by paediatrician). You only use this on the skin when you can see the eczema as it temporary reliefs the itchiness and inflammation of the skin. It can be used 2 to 4 times a day, and can be brought over the counter at the chemist.
4. No soap products or Johnson and Johnson products: i was told by the chemist that they are designed to dry the skin out and will only make the eczema worse.
5. Sensitive skin laundry detergent or power: will help reduce the skin irritations caused by soap.
6. Betamthasone Valerate cream: this is used when the eczema flares up, it is only used once a day but make the eczema disappear overnight. You need to see you doctor to get a script for this one.
I have found that if i use these items all year round that he hardly ever get eczema anymore. But you do have to keep it up. Another thing I did try some natural eczema products but I found that they cracked the skin open or made it worse. So but careful and I am sure you will find the right stuff you help your child.

There is a lot of good advice already here. My husband has had bad eczema all his life. After years of being treated with prescription, steroid creams, a dermetologist told us about Florazone. This amazing cream has been around since the 1930's but not everyone knows about it. It has no steroids and it works even better than the prescription steroid creams!
It is also important to avoid soaps, and chemicals. You do however need to keep the skin clean and dry. Sweat can cause terrible break outs. We are also careful about the laundry detergents we use, no dyes or perfumes, and no fabric softener. We also stick with all natural fabrics as much as we can. If you haven't visited an allergist I would advise it, eczema and allergies are related and it is very likely she has allergies as well. You may also try a different dermetolagist since the first didn't help you.

Incorporate flax seed oil into her diet. Add it to smoothies, etc. It was the only thing that worked for my friend's daughter who had pretty bad ecezma. She saw a difference within a week.

Hi Ami, I have Ecezma and 2 of my kids have it too. We have spent hundreds of dollars on creams and lotions from the Dermatologist and none have worked. I am with a company called Melaleuca and they produce a lotion and soap that ablsolutley works. Let me know if you want more information on it.

Thanks

Both of my sons have eczema, the dry itchy scaly type. I find that bathing them less often in the winter when the dry static increases, and faithfully covering them with any of the three... Aveeno for eczema, vaseline intensive care, or eucerin. They all work wonders for their type of eczema as long as it is put on daily.

My baby had a bad case of eczema when he was an infant. My pediatrician recommended cortizone and aquaphor worked as well. Aquaphor is a miracle ointment out there i think. The cortizone dries it up, but only use very little amount like a pea or even smaller than a pea size.

its best to stop parts of a routine bit by bit, to try and see what causes it, since so much can trigger it, try changing the washing powder to a fragrance free, sensitive formula. Or could be something in her diet? i heard citrus and diary can trigger it too, plus certain materials such as wool and acryllic irritates eczma, so you could try softer fabrics too.

Bathing, use a special formulated wash or something soothing like oatmeal that calms it down, then in the morning and night apply any of these; cortizone, e45, and any top quality eczma products. hope it works!

Well my son had it. What I did was take him to get tested for allergies. We found out he could not eat Peanuts, Treenuts, Milk, soy, Wheat, Gultin, Avocado. So I stop feeding him things with that stuff in it and it cleared up. I also moved to a place with no smog and I make a green smoothie for him everyday. I am just waiting for the winter time to see if it will return. You sometime the weather will affect the ecezema. I hope this helps. :)

My son had horrible eczema and we asked the pediatrician for an allergy test and found out he was allergic to milk. Once we took that out of his diet, his eczema got a lot better.

I have a 6-year-old daughter with eczema. She has seen one of the only pediatric dermatologists in North America (at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital in Nashville, TN). One of the very, very best things you can do for eczema is this . . . EVERY time you bathe your child, afterwards cover her in a moisturizer; from head to toe. It doesn't matter how many times you bathe her per week or how hot/cool the water is or how long the bath lasts; just be sure to cover her skin afterwards.



Eczema as a symptom can happen for numerous reasons (i.e. illness or allergic reaction). Eczema as a "disorder" (for lack of a better term) or "condition" refers to the body's inability to hold moisture in the skin. There is a layer in the skin designed to hold moisture in the body. In some children (and adults) the layer is defective (as with my daughter). Therefore, you have to create that layer for them by using moisturizer as much as possible and definately after every bath. Chemicals (in soaps & fragrances) can pull moisture out of the skin, so be sure to use chemical and fragrant free soaps and detergents. (Our doctor has recommended get rid of ANYthing scented as it can set off an eczemic flair.) Heat can also zap moisture from the skin (summer is the WORST season for my daughter). Start becoming aware of circumstances that could dry her skin out and carry moisturizer with you at all times. (Be aware! Some have alcohol in them. DO NOT use these. If you're daughter has been scratching at her itches, it will burn!!)



There are numerous moisturizers on the market that will work wonders. I have found the thicker the better, so choose an ointment (Aquafor or Eucerin or Vaseline) to get things started. Once it starts to clear up, you can alternate with a lotion (Cetaphil, CeraVu, etc.).



Here's an experiment to help you decide (and will help your child understand what's happening to their skin) . . . take a common household sponge and cut in half or in quarters (depending on how many lotions you want to test). Make sure each piece is just moist. (If your child is involved, explain that the sponge is like their skin. It's suppose to be moist.) Leave one sponge with nothing on it. (Or better yet, have your child do it!) Put vaseline on one, just like you would lotion. Put a moisturizer on another (or different moisturizers on as many as you like.) Let them sit in the open over night. The next moring, the one with nothing on it will be dry. Each of the others will have some degree of moisture retained in it depending on the lotion or ointment used. It is an eye-opening experiment for Mom and Kid alike and will help you decide which lotion you like the best. (We do this experiment about twice a year; my daughter loves it [she wants to do it for her class at school] and it helps my daughter decide which moisturizer to use for a while giving her some control (that definitely helps!!!).



Finally, if this does not work or ease the itching (try it for a couple of weeks), speak to your doctor about numerous products available. We had good luck with Fluticasone (a steriod), but we've had the BEST luck with a new product called Epicerum. (This can be hard to get ~ our pharmacy has to order it, so I have to plan a little ahead for the day or two it takes to come in.) Epicerum was developed at a dermatology clinic in San Diego. It works with the skin to help create a barrier to hold in the moisture. If's FABULOUS. (My daughter does not like the way it feels cold when it goes on, but it is truly the best so far . . . )



There are other things to try before medications, but I hope what I've given here helps get her skin started in the right direction!! Good luck!

Well my son had horrible eczema in the early months of his life and I had him to the dermatologist several times. After a lot of trial and error we had to put him on the strongest steroid cream that they would allow for his age to get it under control. After it went away we now use CeraVe cleanser and moisturizer on his whole body every time I give him a bath. I actually use the moisturizer every morning and night as well. It is a tedious process but has worked for us with time, dedication, and persistence. Also you must be sure that she isn't using any other kind of soap because that will definitely irritate the rash and be sure to use dreft or all free and clear to wash her clothes and linens.

I know the position your in. good luck. Andrea aproper@marykay.com

Both of my youngest have ecezma. Both are affected by different things. And different things work for them. Every day is a new adventure..lol. My daughters clears up if we bathe her everyday. My son can not be bathed but every few days. Swimming in the pool really helps them both for some reason. I put vaseline on my daughters face before bed, that has really helped with her face feeling like sandpaper. Lotion for ecezma is very expensive and BURNS her skin...we use the vaseline, vanicream (we get it at the pharmacy...it is only around $14 for a 1 LB tub) (they also carry shampoo and other items) The web-site for them is www.psico.com. For bad flair ups we also use Desonimetasone..say that 10 times fast..lol And because ecezma is in the same area as allergies and asthma we give them .5 tsp of zertec before bed (CHECK WITH YOUR DOCTOR TO MAKE SURE OF THE DOSE) My doctor said it was worth a try and for us it does work to keep it under control. Hope this helps and please post as you find things that work, maybe it will give the rest of us more options in treatment.

Read a book titled "the unhealthy truth" by Robyn OBrien. I have 3 boys that skin would be RAW and they would itch until they bled. I read this book after finding out about some food allergy links to eczema and once I found out what food they were allergic to the eczema vanished! Alot of Dr.'s just try to treat the eczema when there is really an underlying problem. My middle child is allergic to eggs and soy, which is in everything but getting it out of his diet changed his life!

OK....I have a 20 yr old ,10 yr old & 2 yr old with it.Definatly 100% cotton EVERYTHING clothing wise. I've been using Tripple paste cream,I found it @ Babies R Us,about $10.00.I don't bathe the baby everyday because it makes her skin too dry.If the Trpple Paste doesn't work try Dove white unscented soap,then take her out of the tub DON'T dry her off,put baby oil then original Eucerin lotion.I found that putting everyone in cotton is key since their skin gets hot then itchy. Also be careful of petrolium in products it tends to bother the skin too & Dr.'s always say use vasoline???I also use tide free,no dyes or parfumes.I hope you got some good answers& good luck!

ok my daughter and i have been fighting eczema since birth. i had to take her to an allergist when she was 8 months. they did a allergy test on her back and found that she was allergic to eggs and cows milk. well ever since then we have watched her diet and the eczema is hardly ever there. when she did/does break out the allergist gave me a perscription ointment call mometosone. eczema loves water. eczema is your skin telling you its thirsty basically. so when you give your daughter a bath, and give her one 3 times a day if thinkits necessary. let her sit in clean UNsoapy water till you are ready to get her out. i used cetaphil soap. its like a facial cleaning soap but her allergist said it was the best to use they have it at walmart on the face soap isle. its a bar maybe $3 or $4. dont wash her til you are ready to take her out. i used to empty the water out and put new warm water in the more water their skin is in the better. when you take her out dont dry her off leave her wet. drench her skin in vasaline, if you get the ointment that i listed above mixed it with the vasaline. then this is gonna sound wierd but it totally worked. take some cotten pjs, with longs sleeves and pant legs. soak them in plain warm water and put them on her, yes i know shes wet but it works. then layer her in dry pjs on top. she will probably be uncomfortable for the first few nights but once its clear just do as stated before and instead of wet pjs just put dry ones on but still cake the vasaline on her every part that breaks out this is for prevention. the dr also put her on singulair to help with the preventions. eczema is definitly allergy related. if you havent set up an appt with an allergist that would be the first thing i would so. if you have any questions or anything my email address is luvmy01gtp@yahoo.com dont hesitate. eczema is a hard battle to fight but we beat it i know you all will too!!!

My 2 year old foster daughter has eczema pretty bad. The doctor suggested we use Eucerin calming cream twice a day and put Auquaphor on the bad spots. She said you really should not use cortisone unless everything does not work, and then do not use it for more than 2 days. SHe also said no hot baths and pat dry. DO not leave her in the bath for very long. Heat will make the itching worse.

Hi, Aloe Vera gel is very good at soothing the skin, it has to be the 100% or 99% aloe vera gel. Also Calendula cream or oil is also very soothing. You can also put some oats in a pillow case, tie it up, and steep it in the bath. Very good for all over the body. Also dairy products are not too good for excema or asthma sufferers, also steer away from citrus foodsi ie tomatoes, oranges etc. Good luck :-)

Hi Ami,
I have a 6 year old boy who had eczema since birth....the great thing is he seems to be outgrowing it now!! We were advised to use "advantan" for a few days then when settled, "elidel" (non cortisone) to maintain....What I found helped was keeping him away from typical foods that cause skin irritation - nuts, chocolate (in anything-so check your cereal boxes for traces of peanuts warning), and anything acidic (oranges, pineapples), even blended juices - they all have preservatives that aggravate the condition. Even chips and coloured sweets etc...I also waited a long while before introducing fish...and I think because of his problem he naturally did not take to eggs.

Use pure glycerine soap only - nothing with perfumes (I know with a little girls it's hard) but her skin should improve...and try to keep her skin moisturised with "Epimax" or "epizone". My dr asks us to do this at least 3 to 6 times a day....and of course to stop her from damaging her skin too much keep her nails as short as possible...I know it's alot to take but hang on there...it will get better

ARBONNE ABC line! It is al natural which means you are not putting harmful chemicals/steroid cream onto your child! Stay away from any cream that has petroleums or mineral oil - they coat skin and do not allow it to breathe plus petroleum has been linked to causing cancer. (which is why it is banned from products in Europe)



cheaper method which also works - Olive Oil :)

AVEENO works tremendously; however, you have to be extremely consistent with the lotion, as in three or more times a day. I have a really bad eczema, and my son has it too. I would just use regular AVEENO lotion, not the baby kind.

I as an adult always used to use Cortizone10, because when i have my outbreaks i get it pretty bad, but like I said AVEENO really does work. Hope you're able to give her some relief.
FYI eczema is extremely aggravated in hot water. I've noticed with my own that once winter hits, the cold, wind, and being in wet clothes aggravates it. I would just try extra careful to keep where ever the eczema areas are away, from being in water for long periods of time.

Good luck!

Hi,im not a mom with a child with ecezma but i was ten years older than my brother who had it.i was always helping mom with him has he was covered head to toe!!!Im not going to be good the product names but maybe you asking for them at docs or chemist cud help.My mom gave my brother lots of baths in a solution for ecezma followed by the stronger cream on the bad bits really rub in and than all over in the everyday e45 stuff!!!My mom only allowed him to wear cotton clothes,Also going to sound silly but my mom always rubbed my brothers itchy area and encouraged him to do the same.As it hard to stop them(mom tried to put gloves on him at night but he got them off,also would use his bed to scratch!!)rubbing is better than scrathing.I hope this helps as i know how bad it is and frustrated mom was,just keep him cool.you prob know this.As for ruining her skin,my brother dont even suffer from it now and isnt marked from it.

My son has terrible eczema, entire body minus his face. When he gets a bath, we NEVER use soap on him, we use Noxzema. (No Eczema!) After that we was his hair with shampoo and pull him straight out of the tub. Also, the Dr. prescribed for him, Flucticasone, which clears it up istantly.

My suggestion is to limited soap based products, ask your pharmacist. Also, I find Keri oil massage prior to bath very helpful and my daughter loves it, again the pharmacy has it. Rose Hip Oil is another good one. Hopefully you found something that was helpful to your daughter. Tata

Put Aquafor by Eucerin on it. This has worked for all my friends children that have the issue as well as some of my foster children. It can clear up almost everything! Good luck!

Hi, I have a 6 year old that suffers from it. What I find helps is washing him in sorbolene. it softens his skin and controls the redness. I hope this helps!! Also don't give her apple or orange juice just give water!

I have a 21 month old with very bad ecezma.  I have tried everything.  Recently I joined Melaleuca which sells all natural products.  I use their laundry detergent which helps.  Also, they have a bath oil and lotion that I use on him every night.  When I use it, it almost completely disappears.  But I can tell a huge difference when I stop using it.  I can get you set up with them if you are interested.  You can call me at 865-335-2356.  I don't get on here much.


Quoting Ami:

Ecezma any help will be appreciated

I have a 2 3/4 year old daughter who has ecezma really badly. We have been to the dermatologist several times and nothing has worked. Does anyone have any remedies that have worked for them, I getting really anxious with this. Her skin looks horrible and I am afraid if this keeps up that her scratching will ruin her skin.
