My 1 year old is using aveeno (oatmeal) and derma smoothe from his dermatologist for his eczema. It's not working. Skin is blotchy. What can I do?

Eczema: My advice on handling eczema is to limit the time in the bath tub, water is the enemy of eczema. To use aveeno (oatmeal), (oatmeal) cetaphil or dove sensitive skin soap only. To moisturize 2-3 times a day with cetaphil, aveeno (oatmeal) or aquaphor. And to use a steroid cream on the worst areas sparingly once daily. I hope this helps :) ...Read more

Lubriderm advanced therapy lotion good for dry skin?? Been using Aveeno (oatmeal) right after the shower still dry... How can I prevent chicken skin spots??

Other creams help: For rough bumps (or "chicken skin" or keratosis pilaris), it's helpful to use a moisturizer with a "keratolytic" ingredient -- this breaks down the more thick rough skin that sometimes builds up in pores and leads to rough bumps. Keratolytics include salicylic acid, ammonium lactate, and urea. Cerave SA cream and Amlactin are two over the counter examples that have one of those ingredients. ...Read more

My skin on my face gets severely dry, red, & flakey, esp on my chin, under my eyebrows, & above upper lip. Any suggestions, besides aveeno (oatmeal) & aquaphor?

Infrequent use of a cortisone cream your doctor can prescribed is the best way to keep it under control. Cortisone should not be used for more than a week or so at a time on the face. Consult with your family doctor or a dermatologist. ...Read more
