    I used Aveeno on DD when she was little. Now I use the new Neosporin eczema cream. It works really well.

    Cortisone, but avoiding the eyes and mouth. We used it on ds as a newborn when he had it.

    For my dd I sometimes have to give her a lukewarm oatmeal bath and then get her out and not dry her off but rub Vaseline all over her body. Then take those really tight long John type pajamas and run them under the hottest water you can, ring them out, and out them on (this will help the Vaseline to moisturize)

    Have them sit for about 30 min ( I usually have dd wear her robe & sit on a towel)

    Take it off and moisturize with Eucerin cream before getting dressed

    The Aveeno excema cream works pretty good on my ds, but my dds gets REALLY bad. So I have to do that procedure and she has prescription cream as well.

    Aveeno works really well for me. So does Auqafor(I think thats how you spell it)

    Also, Colloidal otameal works really well.

    I make my own mix of hydrocortisone cream, antibiotic cream and Vaseline. If you read the high priced eczema creams that is what they are made with as well. This mix works great! One of my ds's has it so bad in the winter that I do have to use prescription eczema cream and that is a godsend for him!
    I give my yds a warm bath then dry him off then spread a thin layer of my concoction then cover him with tighter fitting Jammie's and by morning he is better and no itching at night! In between baths I do the same, spred it on then tighter fitting Jammie's.
