My 9 month daughter has had red dry sploches all over her back for about a week, and it hasent spread, she was diagnosed with eczema when she was smaller so that's what I'm assuming it is, but what I dint understand is that I've been using cortizone and cephail lotion and its helping with the dryness but the red sploches haven't gotten better, does anyone know what else it could be? Thank u :-)

I was surprised to learn that food allergies and foods introduced at a young age trigger the eczema. So though you are treating her dry skin she may be getting it from a new food you have introduced to her. Check out the food store in the baby isle for the creams formulated for baby's skin that treats the eczema. This may work however my grandson requires the cream from the pharmacy his Ped calls in to get it cleared up.

Thank you bobbie, I never even thought about that, but she has an appointment this week with the doctor, so maybe they will prescibe or something, or it could b a food allergy
