My 6 month old has dermatitis, and she tries to itch all night long. Apart from a steroid cream or elidel and protopic, does anyone know something that can help with the itching?Does anyone know of a topical cream that stops itching?
use hydro-cortisone creme mixed fifty percent with something like Lubridern. you need to consult a doctor BEFORE doing so.
elidel has been known to cause blood disorders (leukemia), i would never go that route. my daughter has eczema really bad and she was told to use 50-50 hydro-cortisone and lotion in the morning and at night. works for us. DON';T USE ELIDEL! i don't know anything about protopic but on a child so young, steroids can cause blood disorders and cause WBC or RBC to not function properly and supress the immune system in other ways such as causing bacterial infections.
PLEASE READ BEFORE DECIDING:

There is a lotion called Eucema sold over the counter at Wal-mart, CVS, Walgreen's, and various other stores it is not to expensive and my mom used it on me when I was an infant. I had a really bad case of it. It comes in a white container usually with blue and white labeling.
can i suggest . common calamine ?
