Got a 1 year old boy and he's just about sensitive to anything.

No baby soap,no washing powder, no diary and no processed food.

He gets an eczema reaction to those products.

I've been told he will grow out of it.

I hope that will be soon.

I'm running out of ideas on what to give him for snax.

All of my LO's had ezcema, 2 more severe than the other 2. I've done all homemade foods for them and it made a HUGE difference. There is a website It is a great resource with recipes, etc. 2 out of the 4 have had to go to a dermatologist because of the severity of the issue. I use CeraVe cleanser and lotion for my Nov. 08 baby and I also have a prescription compound cream that I use when she has a major flair up. I also only use detergents that have NO perfumes or dyes. Like Tide free and clear, NO DREFT!!!!!

I would start with his diet, check out that website and that should help. With my oldest girl the only type of lotion that truly helped was Eucerin Intensive Repair, twice daily morning and before bed, only Cetaphil cleanser. It's truly trial and error when it comes to ruling out what will make them flair. Best of luck, hope some of this helps you!
