My 6month old has bad eczema... we have tried it all ... steroid cream, antibotic creams, aquaphor, lotions... any one have any more suggestions?

Do you know the cause of the eczema? My daughter had horrible eczema and it turned out she had food allergies that were making it worse. Talk to your doctor about an elimination diet to see if any foods are the cause. Oh, and we went through about 5 differetn steroid creams before we found one that worked really well.

Try some epsom salts in the baby bath, it is supposed to help calm the inflamation a bit and clean out the wounds and stop using any harsh soaps with perfumes or scents.. all those things helped over here..
