My 8 month old has been in and out of his doctor for this rash that's on his feet. They have said its eczema and prescribed him all kinds of stuff but doesn't seem to work. What can I do to make this better? He has the ugliest feet bc there are bumps all over them and his feet are always sweaty.

If it's just his feet, it could be athletes foot. Has it cleared up yet? You can try lotramin cream.

I bought this stuff from Walgreens. It is olive oil with tea tree oil and avacado so I'm going to try that. I also got some Epsom salt. Hopefully it starts working

They switched his shampoo, lotion, detergent all to all free and clear! They gave him a steroid cream to use when it's bad but I can't keep using that because it says don't use after 14 days. I have used that lotion and vaseline. I had been in and out of the doctor w him and it's like thy don't know but my husband has it. It's just sad to sit here and watch

Hello Amber, I have 9 children and all except 2 have had childhood eczema. Yes it looks horrible, yes it is painful.. Can I ask what you are using? ..Some medicated creams work, but so do natural things.. sea weed is brilliant.. and can be bought dried if your not near the sea. Cotton clothing, non bio washing powder, sea salt baths, and olive oil rubbed on his feet then wrapped in cotton bandages. Even the creams given can be rubbed on and cotton bandages over do help also.. changing every few hours.. xx
