My 10-month old sucks his pinky, ring, and middle finger. His knuckles on his ring finger have split in the crease. It looks soooo painful. Mind you, he has eczema. Every chance I get, I try to put on Aquafor or Vaseline but that is the hand he sucks so it doesn't last long. I fear putting on a bandaid because he may get it off and choke on it. Any suggestions?????
My son has exzema and its a tough condition to treat.I suggest a&D ointment,vaseline and maybe try to busy him doing something with his hands.I know when my son gets to scratching,I try to keep him busy as often as I can.I currently take my son to a dermatologist and his is on oral meds in addition to home therapy(less frequent bathing,renew lotion,and keeping his skin as moist as possible.)
