Hello! My 7-year-old son has had eczema all of his life. He's had multiple food allergies and I think he has outgrown all at this point except nuts (peanuts/tree nuts). But, his eczema persists. He's been diagnosed with Celiac and out went gluten but the eczema stayed behind. (GF for over a year)
I even kept a food diary and can't figure out a connection. Somehow, spring (pollen) seems to make it worse. It's never gone. His arms, legs, hands and feet have the worst of it - his torso gets it as well and it's best or non-existant on his face (although where his ear lobes meet his head there's some cracking that occurs).
We've had some success with bleach baths, prescription creams and a thick pot of cream/lotion called vanicream. Aquaphor made his breakouts worse as a baby/toddler - I haven't tried that or Vasoline in many years. I'm wondering what else we can try. I know everyone is different and lots of what we've tried hasn't helped at all. But, I'll be we have suffering experts out there who find relief one way or another...and may not even be suffering any more!
Thanks in advance!
