I had to get an antibiotic from the pediatrician for my daughter. If you find that nothing helps it call your pediatrician.

I used CETAPHIL body wash for my daughter fantastic.It is not a soap but a body wash for skin irratations from the chemist.

I can't afford much when it comes to finding solutions for my son's severe eczema. But something that has worked so far and is fairly inexpensive is oatmeal. We use Johnson & Johnson (or Aveeno) Vanilla Oatmeal Body Wash and a oatmeal lotion. We've been doing this for awhile now and my son no longer has serious outbreaks. His skin even stays moisturized for a few days afterward too.

My son has eczema and I found that Aquaphor (an over the counter product) really helps alot, and oatmeal bathes, also I would switch to free (of dyes fragerance etc) bath wash and laundry products, just in case something in them is aggrevating it. I was told by the dermatologist that sometimes allergies make it worse, so you might want to consider testing if methods dont work once she is old enough.
