Re: My 4 Month Old Baby Has Weeping Eczema (Pics attached)

You can try getting an allergy test and if there's no clue from there (like my child's eczema was triggered by sweat and inherently dry skin with staph bacteria), then mostly, it's keeping cool and moisturizing, with wet wraps or anti-microbial wipes depending on whether the itch looks like it's mor...

Re: Lip Eczema experience

Sorry to hear of misdiagnosis and suffering for so many months.. lip balm without fragrance usually works for my daughter though her case is very mild and likely due to dehydration, which then sometimes becomes skin irritation. Or when her face is really dry, we would use a ceramide moisturizer in l...

Re: Finding the cause

Hi! Allergy testing will be a good place to start; at least it would give you a direction on whether it is dust mite/ food/ mold/ pet/ pollen etc that you need to be aware of. Otherwise, unless it's a very consistent allergic flare-up, it's quite difficult to narrow it down as it could be a mix of e...

Re: Itching after nap and at night, please help!

Hi! It's quite common for kids to be scratching when they have nothing to do - often around naps and at night. My kid was scratching her head for years, just before bedtime. It's quite a bit of trial and error, but you can explore: - check if there is scalp eczema -it's not so obvious, but you can t...

Re: Eczema on tip of penis - very depressed

Sorry to hear of the persistent problem.. has any doctor offered to do a skin swap to just test for different bacteria/fungus to rule these out? Take care!

Re: I've to make a decision

It's really hard to say how much it would be effective... but it's best to manage your expectations as many companies are working on eczema treatment apart from steroid but few have come up with a solution. Is there a dermatologist who can advise you? I guess knowing if there are more existing treat...

Re: Eczema skin help

Try an antiseptic gentle cleanser like Octenisan? My kid has eczema from 2 weeks old, and last year, it worsened at 10 years old due to heat from change in classroom and physical exercise outdoors in school. Through the doctor's consultation, and skin swap tests, realized that staph bacteria really ...

Re: Covid19

Found an article on blood borne virus and then a possible route is damaged skin. https://www.hse.gov.uk/biosafety/blood-borne-viruses/spread.htm Covid19 is airborne, so not like hep or hiv. Regarding over-reactivity, am not sure.. don't think will have studies on this but my daughter had shingles ve...

Re: Please send advice!

Oh dear.. does the skin feel warm or tender/ fever etc? Infection can be dangerous especially if widespread. I'm not sure if there is a clinic to go to, or how to get prescription should it be bacterial infection? Meanwhile, I would take care to use an anti-bacterial wash that is non-drying to skin,...

Re: cyclosporine for eczema

I know puberty affects eczema, so possibly hormonal changes play a role. Keep safe, and especially not infected cos difficult to go hospital in this covid19 situation, take care!
