My 4 month old has really dry skin all over her body, worse in areas where the nappy sits. The doc said its eczema and to use dermaveen in her bath, ive been doing this for about 2 months now and have tried lathering her up at every nappy change & bath. Ive tried sorbolene and Nyal eczema and nothing is helping. If anything its getting worse. I cant get a straight answer from a doc and its driving me nuts. Please help

Buy soap with NO SLS. Make sure the label says SLS free. It irritates eczema. Gluten in food is another thing that aggravates it. Low gluten diets help. I just eliminate wheat. Extra virgin olive oil works wonders, as does shea butter. I've had eczema all my life so I know first hand.
