I have breastfed my son till he was about 6 months and his eczema started forming around 4 months, I was told he was probally allergic to something i was eating. I couldnt not figure out what it is so I switched to a hypoallergenic formula by similac. All he drinks is the formula and starting to introduce fruits and vegetables. I have tried every cream , steriod, and natural/home remedy out there and nothing seems to help. My son scratches throughout the day and at night and wakes up scratching and its gotten to the point that he can only wear jeans and long sleeve shirts or he will tear up his skin. He is such a happy baby and its really breaking my heart to see him like this suffering. He has a appointment with an allergist but its not till the end of august, is there anything else i can do to bring his some relief i literally feel like ive tried everything from cocunut oil to oatmeal baths to steriod creams to zyrtec and benadry please help

I got the product and been using it for about two days , is it suppose to dry the eczema out and make it peel a lot ?

My son has bad eczema and after trying many many products and other remedies, the itching was out of control and I was desperate. I stumbled on a product called Infinite Aloe advanced formula, it's an aloe extract I applied it on him twice a day and before bed and it stopped the itching and after two weeks it slowly healed the eczema and now as long as we remember to apply it every two days or so it stays away. It's a little expensive but worth it to me. (1-888-588-2553 to order it) good luck I hope it works for your baby as well.
