use the oatmeal bath soap or Cetaphil u can get it at a wal mart they have soap and lotion it helped my son with his eczema when it wasn't too flared up. Also u can try hydrocortisone the name brand and the off brand have the same things in it so to save bucks get the off brand.

Throw some organic oatmeal in a food processor and puree it until it's like baby cereal, or buy organic baby cereal oatmeal, and toss it in her baths about 1/3 to 1/2 cup. This is the less expensive version of an oatmeal bath. Just make sure it's organic since some of the pesticides used in growing food can be irritating.

Another lotion which has helped my little man is DremaVeen. Was recommended by our speciatlist and it has worked a treat.

I use QV bath lotion, and cream for my itchy little man... i dont know if its available world wide, I am in Australia. Avoid soap.

My pharmacist was really helpful.
