Have you been to an allergist for the excema? Mine has helped lots, plus he did the prick test and my daughter was allergic to nuts, and eggs, and when we took them out of her diet, her excema got much better. My son was the same, he was allergic to milk, I was breastfeeding, eating lots of dairy, and when I got him on the right diet, his skin got much better also. We use Renew lotion.

hi, my son has suffered for 10years and for the last two me have just got it under control. it is hard but you should ask for skin test to be done and speak to ure health vistier as well. thers stuff that u can get for putting in there bath its called OILATUM EMOLLIENT it puts the oils back into there skin to help keep it soft . creams and stuff are trail and error until u find the right one.
