My son is 17 months old and has 2 spots on his face (on his right and left cheek) where he gets eczema all the time (since he was probably 6-8 months old). It's always the exact same spots, and as soon as I put cortizone on them, they goes away. I put aquaphor on them 2-3 times a day to keep the skin moisturized, but the spots still come back every 1-2 weeks or so. I've tried using the stronger cream and again, it makes the spots go away but they always come back. Any suggestions? I'm scared of damaging his skin by always putting cortizone on it....and he doesn't have eczema anywhere else on his body.
