Doesn't really sound like anything new
Steroid creams come in different potency's
Antibiotic cream shouldn't be used unless there is an infection
Moisturiser is pretty common sense

I wouldn't be putting it on my daughter unles I knew exactly what was in it.

How bad is the eczema and what has been tried already?

Nope never used it. Tried many other creams for my son. None of them have ever worked.... until I discovered aqueous cream. Works an absolute treat and would highly recommend it. Have you ever used it before?
#3
I used to use E45.
Doctor told me to use warm vaseline
#4
Used everything offered. Both my lads have to sleep in tubi-grip pyjamas when they it flares up. Using trimovate / eumovate on eldests hands & feet at the moment with a funky plaster strip which can stick to fluids/creams and not come off. They both have elocon (i think) rubbed all over them for bed as well.

My wife mostly deals with all the creams etc but this got her interested.I think she just wants them both to get better. Nothing worse than seeing a mark on your kids hand where he has rubbed it till it bled on the carpet to stop the itching :(

aqueous cream i am actually allergic to. i had to wet wrap when i was pregnant with my son as my excema was awful, i am ok now. i had a thin layer of hydrocortizone then lashing of emulsyfying ointment like lard. then i had a clay paste, zinc and icthamol then bandages. it worked a treat.

if you have trouble and things from the gp arent working ask to be referred to a dermitologist. they will help you.
#6
change from cows milk to goats milk. i know 2 people this worked for.
#7
They are both under the supervision of the eczema clinic at Pinderfields in Wakefield, and have to visit every 3 months for check ups.

I looked after a little boy once (and still do but he is older) he had the most horrific baby excema, so bad his body looked burned and blistered all over. We used to smother the worst parts in liquid pariffin and wrap 100% cotton badages around his limbs. The poor little mite used to scratch at them so hard he would often make them slip and his skin would bleed all the time. I hope you manage to find something to ease the problem. Can only be worth a try i suppose, as with anything as long as your careful.

my daughter was in quite state as baby,waste of time going to GP,waste of time being referred to Dermatologist.
Best thing to do,is to get rid of you carpets where your children go,get rid of curtains,get blinds instead. Write down a list what you feeding your children,and try different things,to see if they allergic to any foods. Basically thats what I did with Cerys. It was like her being born,the atmosphere affected her in matter of wks,and then as she was weaned etc,as she took in more foods,I noticed it was foods made changes in skin.
I know now how much she can have of certain things,what foods she should avoid totally.
Do you know if their skin conditions are caused by food or the environment around them or other things that can be avoided?
I'm pretty certain my daughters is food,cos her Dad is affected by food,so genetic,so I've been able to watch what to do over the yrs,she's 5 now and no problems at all aslong as I monitor what she eats.
#10
Actually that image looks all square,its form a pic on my computer that was scanned,time all the processes you can't really see at all.But you can see her eyes are swollen specially her left one,cos all inflamed and so dry.
#11
We went to Majorca (Alcudia) last year for a week, and the sea & sunshine cleared up my eldests skin so much so that he was removed from the supervision of the eczema clinic as they thought we had it licked, only for it to come back a few weeks later. We are going back to Alcudia in 5 weeks time for 2 weeks, so hopefully this will give them, and us, a break from the bad skin and everything associated with it.

My wife is wheat intolerant (i think thats the term) so has to be careful what she eats or she breaks out in a very nasty rash and her face swells up, to the point where she cant breathe. We have not noticed any 1 food item which we could say makes it worse.
#13
Coalic disease ( can't spell ) thats what it called if you allergic to items with Gluten in,like wheat products,bread,pasta.
My partner is not to have much wheat products,and he somewhat allergic to nut,gets all red round neck and itchy if he just as more than just a handful or so.
The sun is good excema,but ensure you decent sun protection,which you probably already know.
I don't let Cerys eat too much wheat,if she has something like macroni for lunch,then she won't get like a spag bol later on. She limited to so much bread,toast etc.I limited dairy products too,they set belly off too,runs and all.
I keep pets too,that doesn't seem to affect her,however I was at asthma clinic with her other wk,and nurse said she may not be allergic to our pets but could be allergic in someone elses house if they got same types as us even. It's all weird,all I know is I wouldn't bother taking any other child I had to any clinics for it anymore as we seem to figure out what to do in here better than their skin advice they give.
I also bath her once a week,the water can make it worse.At moment that does her,cos she only 5.
#14
Oh yeh and 1 thing to keep in mind,I'm not sure if they prescribe it to children,but my partner use to take them and I got him to stop cos they were making him crazy and paranoid while sleeping. And thats some tablets called Atarax. He was given them to stop the irratation at night but they had some weird side effects.
He wasn't taking them every night but onyl when he had skin flare ups bad,and he did various things in his sleep. He'd be paranoid,sort of be partly asleep but sat up talking,saying things like I'm poisoning him. The worst one and scraiest was he shot up out of bed 1 night and thought something was happening at window to him and he broke the window with his hand while kind of asleep,it was weird. We had small panes of glass in this window,and he's hand shot clear through it,no cut,how odd.
After that episode,I got rid of the tabs,and told him not to get anymore from Dr's.

It was also condition of the flats,damp rot etc would aggravate him,so if you renting somewhere and its in poor condition,that won't be helping either.

Coliac disease, thats right. Been looking for the picture of the wife when her face was swollen with no luck.

We were told to bathe the kids in some clear liquid which turns white on contact with water, but it makes them as slippery as eels :)

I don't like the stuff you put in baths,too slippery and wouldn't wnat to lift them as babies incase they slipped away. The bath always left with a film round it afterwards.

And I don't think she be too pleased with a pic like that on here either!
#18
No she wouldn't. I only took it to prove to our GP that she was having a reaction to something. After they saw the picture she had a biopsy and was informed about the coliac disease.

My wife and her sister have since been to some hospital in London as lab rats in identical twin research, to see whether her sister is suffering from similar things. Very interesting day out :thumbsup:

Well there isn't a cure for it, but most kids will get better as they get older.

You are already using steriod creams, i presume a moisturiser like diprobase, and unless infected you don't need the antibiotic.
From what that site says, it sounds like the cream he gives is a mix of them all together so I really can't see it doing any good.

My daughter has had it really bad for about 5 years now, and we have learnt the best we can do is try to control it, which tends to mean swopping creams every few months as she grows immune to them after a while. Obviously the hardest part is keeping the skin moisturised all the time.

Do you give them anything to stop the itching? I give my daughter half a hayfever tablet most nights during the summer that seems to help.

They have 5ml of Piriton when required.

My daughter has severe eczema, Her skin is as bad as it's been for ages now. Wet wrapped on a daily basis along with sterodi creams and antihistamines. She's 8 now and had it since she was a year old. The sun clears up her skin, so we usually get away twice a year, and her school are okay with a holiday in term time for that reason. She's going bak onto light treatment next month (bit like a mini sunbed). She's tried everything, diet, protopic (supressent), even tried, chinese herbal treatment. Just hope she grows out of it.

That sounds very similar to my daughter (just turned 9)
I've never managed to get her completely free of it, even just for days

How did you find the light treatment? Thats about the only thing so far we haven't tried.

have same problem here only thing is my daughter is 5, i do feel so sorry for her as her brothers and sister have never had a problem, but poor old her has a terrible time, and her skin is best when in a sunny climate also her skin improves greatly when we are in spain, their is a small inlet sea called the "mar menor" near murcia, its very salty and whatever is in it helped here, unfortunally she has asthma as well, we are all hoping she will too grow out of it.
#25
i keep changing different emolliants.... actually dream cream from Lush is fab,

chinese herbal was useless on son
#26
I saw the programme on TV and was really interested too but thought it was well expensive! I've had eczema since i was about 16 and also have ceoliac disease. i couldn't use any creams at all even prescribed ones and found they made my skin worse, my skin comes up and i end up looking like elephant man with the swelling, itching and cracking. I was prescribed EPOGAM tablets from my GP which are a form of evening primrose oil capsules, i had to take 6 tabs twice a day and saw an improvement in 4 days, once the initial problems die down i reduced the tablets to stabalise the skin. Unfortunately my GP now is reluctant to prescribe these and all i get is Aveeno moisturising cream to use daily when eczema is controlled which now helps but i still have dreadful dry skin.
My youngest daughter also gets bad eczema but refuses cream on her as she also has aspergers and is sensitive to anything on her skin, she has a dairy free diet through choice and this has made no difference at all!
Personally if my child had severe eczema to the extreme that some posters on here talk about i would try anything even the cream that was on TV, from what i remember they said there was an improvement in 1 month on the young girl that tried it.
