OTC remedy saved our bacon--after trying Many Other Methods
i know this is a little dated. our baby had the worst weeping eczema and thick cradle cap. the pediatrician prescribed antibiotics which just made me weep. but we were so desperate and tried it. it never even touched it. here's what we FINALLY got to work (tried every natural cream for babies we could find):
*blot it dry (gently!)
*apply a THIN layer of Neosporin CREAM (not the ointment). we only did this step a couple times
*glob on like frosting California Baby Calming/Calendula cream.. (can get at Target). i put it on her face when i knew she'd be still for a long time (asleep, nursing...) and could actually watch it soaking in. I used it ALL the time. We went through a couple little jars of the cream, but WORTH IT. cleared up in a couple weeks, after months of nothing else working.
(also tried lots of diet restrictions; we never did find an allergy for her)
