Eczema cream recommendation!!

Hi, im a first time mom and my baby has this kind of rash which i thought its a milk rash.been applying organic balm since then. At first it was healing but afterawhile it gets worst. PD said its a eczema not milk rash and he gave a steroid base cream to apply but i realised his skin is getting drier. Any recommended cream for eczema that doesnt dry up the skin? TIA

After applying the steroid, it really does dry up but it is part of the healing process. Remember to apply moisturiser first, let it be absorbed then very thinly apply the steroid. Stop the steroid once the skin has healed but continue to apply moisturiser after every shower/wipe. My girl’s skin looked exactly like your lo’s when she had eczema flare up which we exacerbated by frequently wiping/washing her face without moisturising (we didn’t know what to do then 😅)

for steriod cream u need to apply very thin layer. best use cotton bud to use do a really thin layer. not sure if u did that? can give it a try if previously u were using lots of it.

Steroid will dry up the skin but is also an effective way of getting rid of the rash. Perhaps you’d want to apply a moisturizer after the steroid cream. QV kids is not bad.

Do continue using the moisturizer even after the rash is gone to prevent it from coming back. 👍

Have u tried suu balm? Or lush?
