... Thanks for the respnse, Tiff! Madeline does actually have mild eczema, but it's never been in this area before. She has only ever gotten rough patches on her face, neck, and arms, and even then it's very rare to see a flare up (knock on wood). It was bad as a newborn, but I thought she grew out of it because I haven't seen it since. I'm wondering now if it could be the... (4 replies)

... Thanks, I'll look into the Dr. Bronner's. Once his bottom is completely cleared up we might look into something like that so hopefully he won't have anymore breakouts. (15 replies)

... Even more mild than Dove is Dr. Bronner's baby soap. It's made of all natural plant derived oils. It has made a HUGE difference in ds's skin, and we used to use Dove. Glad your LO is doing better.;) (15 replies)

Eczema question
Jun 4, 2008
... I just wanted to thank you guys so much for helping me out. We switched back to using Dove soap (his dr said it was the mildest soap we could use), we only use aquaphor on his tush, wipes with just water, and changed his Pampers to Huggies and his hinny is almost completely cleared up! We just switched the diapers yesterday and it cleared up so quick! I don't know if it was a... (15 replies)

... You can just search on the internet for cloth diapers. That's how I came upon them. I wasn't in to the whole diaper pin thing, partly because I'm lazy and partly because I have no folding talent when it comes to those diapers! Ha Ha (15 replies)
Eczema question

... We cloth diaper. It's much easier than it sounds. You just have to wash them, nothing really tough, It's better for your baby's bottom, and the environment. You can search online for them to findout more, I doubt I'm allowed to mention the brand I use, but there are so many. We use prefolds with covers. But there are all-in-ones, and pocket diapers out there. If your baby had... (15 replies)

Eczema question
Jun 2, 2008
... They do make cloth diapers that have velcro. They make everything easier and you can use them again later for another child if they are still in good shape. They have cotton and organic ones out there. They have a built in rubber outer liner and everything! If your lo is having a hard time with the diapers, you might want to look in to these. Good luck!

Eczema question
Jun 2, 2008
... Thanks! We might be running out tomorrow for some new diapers, I really don't like the Parent's Choice. They are very stiff too. I just don't like 'em. Janewhite1- I never considered cloth until recently. My son is 16 months so hopefully within the next 6 months or so he'll be out of diapers. I just can't see me spending the money only to realize that I don't have the time... (15 replies)
Eczema question

... Ever consider nice soft cotton cloth diapers? I know, I don't have a baby, so I have no right to recommend something that's so much more work when you're already constantly busy, but plastic in any form is not a friend to skin. I keep thinking I'll try cotton menstrual products--but never find the time. (15 replies)

... we switched to luvs diapers during the day, and huggies overnights for nighttime. i usually put her to bed with a luvs diaper and then go and change her into a huggies right before i go to bed and she's actually slept better since we started doing that!!! i actually did try the parents choice diapers, but like you, i found that they really didn't keep her bottom dry at...

Eczema question

... MCR- when you realized it was the pampers that were irritating your daughters skin, what did you switch to? We are putting Parent's Choice diapers on him right now, to see if it is the Pampers, but I don't think they pull the moisture away from his bottom the way the Pampers do. Just curious what you used.

Eczema question
May 31, 2008
... Thank you for your input! I felt like I was using a lot of different stuff but I'm just so desperate to get rid of it. I used to make his wipes up until about 4 months ago and I'm starting to wonder if he isn't allergic to something in the store bought wipes that is causing his flair-ups. I'm either going back to making them or just using water. Thanks so much! (15 replies)

Eczema question
May 13, 2008
... Gemmalou- Aden actually is teething. He has been for a few weeks now. I wonder why that would cause flare-ups? I don't really remember if he started teething before or after his hinny got really red. I sure hope it clears up when his teeth pop through. I know he's teething because he's been drolling like crazy and been moody, but I can't see or feel anything so it might be... (16 replies)

... Thanks Jaxiee! I actually looked at Wal-Mart for the Aveeno baby wash and (I feel terrible for saying this) I didn't get it 'cause it was so expensive for such a small bottle. We use Dove soap which doesn't seem to irritate his skin, now I'm looking for something besides baby shampoo for his hair but am not having any luck. I know Johnson's is very mild but I'm worried the... (16 replies)
Eczema question
May 8, 2008
... If we don't know what causes it then how do we know it is genetic? If the cause is known then ??? Something is causing it. It makes sense to stay away from chemicals. Beware that many "all natural" or even some "organic" products are not natural or organic. You have to read the back label. I believe we do know what causes this, it is a matter of figuring out what the cause is. (16 replies)

Eczema question

... It can be triggered from vaccines or from cow's milk, deficiency of vitamins, or toxic blood. You should use natural soaps, otherwise soap is not regulated and is loaded with all kinds of chemicals, just look at the back of the bottle. Try using a calendula salve, calendula (marigold) has great natural skin healing abilities or use natural vitamin E. Anything prescription or... (16 replies)
