Scratchy Scratch

Little Belle had a itchy rash all over her tummy and a little on her shoulders and knees. She would wake up in the middle of the night scratching so I started putting onesies on her so she couldn't lift her shirt to scratch. We visited the doctor a few days ago and she was diagnosed with eczema and prescribed a twice a day treatment of hydrocortisone cream. The itching and rash have almost disappeared although her skin is a little bumpy. Natural remedies include lemon, oatmeal soak, tomato juice, and sun bathing.

Hey Lenora,
Asher had excsema really bad at the beginning of summer and I started lathering him up with the thick Cetaphil cream every day, and it has worked wonders! (I had it when I was little, too!) Also, using detergent that is "free & clear" really helps! I'm sure you already know this though. ;-)

Yes, we switched detergents too!
