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 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

Dermatitis: It sounds like you have a condition called seborrhic dermatitis. It is caused by over active skin oil, glands in the areas you describe. 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

Hot water OK: After a long soak in shower or bath-----fingers wrinkled-----use a CERAMIDE cream within 3 minutes. Aveeno (oatmeal) ECZEMA or Eucerin ECZEMA. Also rub in the same cream several times a day. Or just move to Hawaii. Also avoid caustic soaps.
