My 9 3/4 month old (lol) has been diagnosed with baby eczema. Lately, it has gotten so itchy that he scratches specific spots until they bleed. The doctor gave us Desonide (for the itching) and Mupirocin (antibiotic) for his scaly patches, but they don't help with the itching. It hurts me to watch him scratch himself - we've tried oatmeal baths and lotions. The worst patch is about the size of a half dollar on the top of his scalp. He scratches so hard he bleeds. He has a lot of hair and he pulls on it until it comes out. We live in Raleigh, NC. We added a humidifier to his room. PLEASE Any suggestions for the itching?
