Long story short we just found out Emmy has eczema. I figured we were in the clear since we had made it almost 3 years with no skin issues to speak of.
When our biggest lil miss was diagnosed with asthma at 18 months, our dr assured us that she would probably grow out of it soon- especially because it wasn't accompanied by eczema.
But here are, almost 18 months after that diagnosis and my little princess has nasty, nasty eczema that makes her itch and feel pain. Mind you, this is the girl that wipes out on the asphalt and doesn't complain about pain at all. Yet having a dry itchy back causes her to express her pain =( From what I can tell, the pool water really irritates her skin as does perfumed detergents.
So here's the lineup of products that we are currently trying. Please comment with any helpful tips you have: diet, products, things to avoid, things to use lots of, etc.... The only other thing I have ever heard to use is Crisco.
