Hi, I need some suggestions if anyone has some! My 17 month old son has had a rash all over his body for about 2 months. It's kind of dry and scaly, and I would describe it as eczema (although I don't have an "expert" diagnosis). I have tried every kind of cream and lotion I can find, finally called the doctor and he of course said to use cortisone on it. When it got so bad behind Ryan's knees that is was kind of weepy I gave in and tried some cortisone on it - but that did no good. I am using only laundry detergent with no colors or fragrances and no fabric softener. Ryan is still breastfeeding and otherwise eats the same diet as the rest of the family. We haven't been able to identify anything that triggered this....help!
