Skin Problems board


My 21 month old is going through the same things to an extreme. We have used Elidel, Elecon, Dermatop, and steroid creams. Currently he is on a steroid ointment called Triamcinolone and an anti anxiety medication called Atarax. I bathe him as infrequently as possible and use oatmeal baths.

We are now looking into sensory issues for his constant scratching since he also scratches on other people when they hold him. He is also going in for allergy testing.

The best thing we have done so far is to go fragrance and dye free for everything. We take it day by day around here as one day it looks like it is getting better only to turn around and it looks really bad. Good luck to you
