My dd has had a rash on her back and shoulders that I figured was dry skin. I have been putting lotion on it anyway but her Dr, said it is Eczema and to just continue with the lotion. Is there any lotion that works best? It is pretty bad on her shoulders. Thanks!

Kimberly mariam also has exzema and the pedi told me to put aveeno baby or vaseline on it but by the time i got mariam to the docs her exzema had falmed quite a bit so i had to some precription cream on it but now i am using the aveeno baby after bathing as well as using the aveeno baby wash and i use vaseline in between

Thank Tanya! I will try the Aveeno lotion. Her Dr. said he would prescribe something if it got worse.

do you know what is causing the eczema? Does your baby have a milk allergy maybe? It is a fact that dairy and use of cow's milk can cause skin rashes on babies.

I have no idea what is causing it, I figured it is from dry skin. I guess it could be an allergy but she is 8 months old and has always been on milk based formula and this has just shown up. I will ask her pedi though.

Hi Kimberly!! My son has eczema pretty bad too. I keep a humidifier in his room. I also mix a little cortozone cream (over the counter) with the disney eczema cream (natural cures or something) which seems to work best. I apply it to the rash 3x a day. Once the rash goes away I keep applying but without the cortozone. It works wonders. Sometimes the rash comes back, then I just bring out the cortozone again. Dr. says they grow out of it eventually...good luck!!!

exzema is not always caused from an allergy it can be from a heridtary factor as well
