3 weeks ago I noticed small pimple like dots on my son's knees which later spread over his tummy and arm. He then began scratching them and they are now all over his torso, right leg and right arm. They are very close together and now look like an awful red patch
I suffer from ezcema myself, but only on my hands so I was not sure what my DS had at first. After seeing some pics of my mom's horrible eczema case as a child, I know that that's what DS has
This awful disease runs in my family and we have never been able to get rid of it...
Can anyone give me tips and links on how to treat this?? His Ped said soimething about some OTC creams, but I don't want any strong skin medication on my son, until I have tried natural methods first. Besides, I know those creams only cover up the symptoms and don't cure eczema.
Any foods we should avoid?
Any teas, herbs he should drink/eat?? (he LOVES herbal teas BTW)
Any creams or lotions we should try??
My baby is suffering so much from it... He cries and begs me to let him scratch himself. He is also desperate in the middle of the night trying to scratch again and again and has not been sleeping his usual 12 hours because of the discomfort
