my 1 year old was diagnosed with having eczema about a month ago we were told to switch to a fragrance free shampoo and soap, to fragrance free all detergant and go to auquaphor vaseline instead of baby lotion. Well we've done all of that and his eczema still won't go away. I have loaded him up with auquaphor at least twice a day sometimes more and I don't know what to do. when we get out of the bath tub it's at its worse, but just won't go away. sometimes it appears to be slightly itchy cause he sometime reaches up to his neck or shoulder and tries to scratch at it. the doctors keep saying that its the soap or the water or the washcloth - it's something different each time and i have switched him to a fragrance free hypoallergenic soap so I don't know whats causing it to get worse after bath time and what is causing it to not get under control. any suggestions would be great!!!!! Thanks!
