  • I used Aveeno Baby dermexa Moisturising cream and it was much better and didnt need to apply again and again.

  • Obviously I am no doctor, but i have always found a nice oat bath to be very soothing for itchy skin and even nappy rash. Put some rolled oats in an old sock or stocking and tie the end. Then put it in a bath of warm water and squeeze the sock quite a few times so that it starts to seep into the water. It should turn quite milky. Then baby or child can go in.

  • Thank you for these answers!

  • We went on a house boat holiday for a week and both my children’s eczema completely disappeared, we were eating the same food but they were swimming in the salt water every day. Within a week of returning back home it was back again. I am sure it was the salt water swims.

  • Vaseline, or some use olive oil or coconut oil works well on my baby.

  • Eczema is so stubborn. Consider a steroid cream if you have to, but I’dvtry over the counter moisturisers (like MooGoo, or Lush’s Dream Cream) first.

  • We used the Mustela emollient cream on my little one, and used lukewarm bath water so as to not irritate the skin while the teething rash made its appearance.

  • Didn’t realise this was for a baby when I clicked on it, so not sure if this will help you much. I have a friend whose little boy has eczema and she finds it clears up after a trip to the beach. I guess the salt water helps
