if you are nursing--both you and baby should be off inflammatory foods (gluten, dairy, corn, sugar, processed food.) Take probiotics and vitamin D. Can also take turmeric pills. If you aren't nursing, just do this for baby. Use Weleda moisturizer and put baby in long sleeves/pants to minimize exposed skin. Give it at least 2 months, this makes a massive difference.

This. If you're nursing, you gotta alter your diet big time. If not, then your baby needs to be on such a diet.
Also helps to take flax oil and magnesium. If nursing, you can take it. And both of you need a top quality probiotic like Klaire Labs.

OP, Google "wet wrapping for eczema." This is the only effective way to manage eczema long term instead of just putting a Band-Aid on it. National Jewish Hospital in Denver, the only hospital in the US that deals specifically with asthma, allergies, and eczema, recommends this method as the only truly successful method of treatment eczema.

Tacrolimus is certainly less concerning than a steroid. That said, I personally wouldn't use it. I'm a scaredy cat at this point. That's just me...

But the dermatologist I trust over at UCLA -- the one who discovered the dangers of steroid overuse -- isn't concerned with it. He says the topical doesn't really work, but he does use a similar drug in oral form: cyclosporin. Not sure if he would use for a baby.

Sun is great for real eczema. Get her out into the sun. However, there's a good chance that there may some steroid damage at this point. Look for bright red/pink flaring and skin tightening/flaking. It will go in cycles if there is steroid damage. Let's pray not.

Refuah shelimah.

In the meantime, can I recommend using Eucerin Original Healing cream to moisturize her? Use the first time right after a very warm bath. Dry her off and smear right away. You can then moisturize her around the clock as needed.

During an itchy spell, please put some Balmex on; it calms down the skin a little bit as it has zinc, an natural anti-inflammatory. It doesn't have to be a thick layer. She doesn't have to look white.

You can speak to your doctor about Benadryl as needed.

Also, you can pick up Domeboro or Burrow's solution to make a compress to soak up the ooze.

Refuah shelimah to your baby!


I just have to say thank you so much for this info. I have been dealing with terrible eczema on my baby for over a year. He was miserable. Its only on his face but was horrible. We've tried everything and nothing seemed to work. He's been on hydrocortisone, triamcinolone, tacrolimus, eucrisa etc. He kept getting MRSA and skin infections. Reading this post, I decided to stop the triamcinolone and tacrolimus and bought eucerin healing cream. I lathered it on his face (he has it by his mouth area) and topped it with vaseline. Its super messy and I only did it at night because he obviously can't walk around like that. Anyway, BH within two days his skin cleared!! I saw his chin for the first time in a year so thank you thank you thank you!!! It's now a week and so far so good!!!

I didn't read the whole thread so apologies if someone said this before, but I know people in US who go to Arizona and have seen success with exczema.
