Caleb has had a bit of eczema round his mouth for about a month. He had a cold and smeared snot all over his face (nice ) and inflamed his face - now we have hydrocortizone cream but have to stop using it tomorrow but it's not cleared up.
Any hints or tips of good things to try - I don't like using steroids!
my older son has excema and i have to wet wrap him at night and i know wot u mean about using the steriods......but he has a red under lip like u mentioned and i have been putting nappy cream on of a night as no one will see him and it seems to be doing the job and savlon is good....
We found Aveeno Cream and Bath Oil pretty good for keeping eczema under control, it was recommended by a mum whose daughter had DS (but get it on prescription as isn't very cheap!) Aqueous Cream is good too.
Elizabeth arden!! I have that stuff must give it a try on caleb (not much though) We have the Aveeno bath oil (owch that cost some!) but we are going back to the Dr tonight so will see if we can get some on prescription.
