What's the best product to use on a 3 year old for eczema?

What's the best product to use on a 3 year old for eczema?

I have tried everything the doctor has giving. I have tried home remedies, over the counter, etc. Nothing is seeming to help him. HELP! Majority of the things I've used he screams and hollers saying it burns and I have to fight with him to let me put it on him again.

What are you guys opinion in regards of a 2 month old baby with seborrhoeic dermatitis? She gets the flare up around her eyes, behind her ears and folds of her little arms. The pediatrician said that’s normal for her but the poor baby is so irritable !!! my daughter in law is using aveeno lotion and aveeno 1% hydrocortisone. Is there any other natural product she can use?

Thirteen year old dealing with eczema for seven years.

Thirteen year old dealing with eczema for seven years.

Hello,
I am trying to help my thirteen year old get her eczema under control. Her arms are red and where not red, mostly white patches. We have tried every lotion. This year it spread to her knees. Specialist at Children's laughed at me when I suggested food allergy. Steroids only make the white patches worse. I have tried every natural lotion imaginable and nothing works. White patches are actually more concerning than the red.
Willing to start over again… read more
