Eczema: Emollients like vaseline and aquaphor should be part of the child's daily routine, at least once a day and more often with skin flares. In terms of efficiency, ointments are more efficacious than creams which in turn are more efficacious than lotions.

A 34-year-old member asked:

Does eczema cream work for paget's disease?

No: I assume that you are referring to paget's disease of the breast? The cream will not work as it is actually a malignant condition that may have the appearance of eczema, with skin changes involving the nipple of the breast. Further w/u and treatment needed to eval another underlying breast cancer. Tx will be surgery plus other tx necessary for the underlying breast cancer. Go and d/w oncologist.

Try our other forum: You posted your question on our free, public, informational forum... where diagnoses, medical advice, or medical care are not given. Try a private consultation where doctors can talk with you on video. Also, in Mexico, parts of Canada, and most of the US certain drugs (but not all) can be prescribed on HealthTap.
