Post subject: eczema at 6 months
Hi everyone Nathans suffering with eczema really badly some days its worse them others. Its really bad on the top of his sholder to the point it scabs and he tries scrathing it and rubs it with the side of his face when its hurting him and it flares up all over his chest down to just past his nipples and also down his left arm just past his elbow.....the health visitor gave me epiderm to use as a soap in the bath and also as a cream and find its not really helping a massive amount.

Is anyone having the same problem or has done in the past and had any sucess with other options?

many thanks for your help in advance x

Sam gets it in the creases of her arms and behind her knees when it is warm.

the doctor gave us hydacortisone cream for twice a day when its really bad, and E45 cream to be used 6 times a day.

i dont use any special bath stuff, as i find asda little angels top to toe wash suits her skin, i have tried others and its the only one that doesnt make her skin bad.
