Difficult...: It can be difficult to completely eradicate eczema but some measures that can decrease exacerbations include avoiding triggers that you are known to be allergic to, using mild soaps and detergents, frequent moisturizing with lotion (especially after bathing), etc. Use the triamcinolone cream on the affected area once the rash occurs until the area heals.

Unsafe: This should be reserved for emergency and not as maintenance. Its effect may last for about a week.
The most important step is applying moisturizer within 3 minutes after bathing on a regular basis plus topical steroid or something like protopic. You need to consult an allergist if you have one in your area since there are many other much safer treatment options. ...Read more

I would also scan the house for other ways baby can get into materials that could be poisonous or dangerous. Babies like to explore and unfortunately, they eat things to see how they taste. ...Read more

Helps with itching: Triamcinolone=steroid is sometime combined with antifungal cream to help with severe itching/irritation (inflammation). Steroid itself does not treat the ringworm. Lamisil, lotrimin, or tinactin (tolnaftate) are available otc and are often adequate to treat commom skin fungal/ringworm infections on skin (not beard/scalp areas). If not better in about 2 wks, consult doc for proper diagnosis/treatment. Good luck. ...Read more

Rashes are very difficult to describe. Can you send a photo? There are very good over the counter anthistamines that can help hives. ...Read more
