I have a baby with face eczema.  I used desonide for a week, but the eczema is back.  Is something else safer or better?

Frequent Vaseline: Eczema on the body and face is in most cases transient and doesn't leave life long scars in most babies. Eczema occurs due to the skin becoming dry. Some important things to do:
1. Apply vaseline/eczema ointments 4-6 times per day
2. Use luke warm water for baths
3. Don't put soaps in the water for bathing as it leaches fat from the skin.
4. Use small amounts of aveno baby wash/dove soap. ...Read more

My baby has face eczema. I used desonide for a week but it is back. Is aclovate safer or better?

Chronic: Eczema is chronic and will recur. I recommend avoiding harsh soaps which will dry the skin, use aquaphor or vanicream to protect your baby's skin throughout the day and desonide to keep it controlled, preferably no more than 3 times a week. It gets better over time! Also, eczema makes skin more susceptible to infections so if it persists, see your dr. ...Read more

How can I remove scars from my face.

How can I remove scars from my face.

Scar treatment: Depending on the problem with the scar there are treatments to improve them but nothing will completely remove them. I treat pigmented scars with bbl to lighten them, thick scars with fractional laser to soften them, or bad or wide scars with surgery to cut out the scar and re-sew it a more cosmetically pleasing way. The laser approach requires a series of treatments to be effective--often 5-6. ...Read more
