Re: Can't narrow down this condition (doctors aren't helping

So sorry to see that you are suffering from such serious hand skin problem - I've a baby with eczema and your skin doesn't quite look like hers..

Re: please can someone help!!!!

Hi Ethan, Eczema does come and go and what you think may be affecting his flare-ups may not be the cause at all. Best thing I can recommend as a quick guide is to get your child an allergy test - skin prick test is a good start if he has skin that is free of eczema. In the meantime, Pencoll's tip to...

See this post, there's research that shows not treating for fear of steroid is a greater risk than steroid; which is safe if use under...
