Eczema??

Hello!!

I am pretty sure that O has got eczema around her mouth. I know she's prone to it because it runs in the family, my brother had it really bad as a child, and I have atopic dermatitis.

My question is should I get her to the docs to get it properly diagnosed and get some stuff for it? What can I do to help in the meantime? I've put some of my cetraben on it as I know that its ok for children and is for eczema. But is there anything else??

Can someone point me to some good threads?!?!

Thanks!!

Hi Flic

My LO has eczema,and we use Cetraben and hydrocortisone,although he mainly gets it on his body. I thought he did have it round his mouth,after we got rid of the rash he had last week he was left with a red mouth, also because he is teething and dribbling it doesn't help, I took him to Boots at the weekend and she gave me some ointment for him to use.
The Practise Nurse we see for his eczema told us to use Vaseline round his mouth too in the hope it will work as a barrier and stop the dribbling making him red raw.

Ah, so if I go to the docs we might get some hydrocortisone. Its just very red and looks quite sore so I don't think the cetraben on its own will clear it up.

Trouble is, while she's dribbling a lot then it's going to disguise her symptoms as it could also be that her dribbling is making her mouth sore - like it's getting chapped. You can get an emoliant moisturiser from your GP that's suitable for babies - I've just got some for J as he's got eczma up his cheeks to about his eyebrows - so we'll see if it makes any difference.

See I did think initially it was the dribbling but looking closely at it it does look like my brother used to look. Its round her mouth in the creases and a bit on her cheeks. It looks very dry and not nice really.

I've got an appointment for Friday to see a nice lady doctor so hopefully she'll sort her out. It doesn't help that she's got a cold now too and runny nose. I'm worried I'm going to make it sore by wiping her nose :sadface:

Try dabbing her nose rather than wiping, J hates having his nose wiped but till tolerate it if I dab it instead - you don't get all the snot but it makes it better, limit yourself to 3 dabs so she doesn't get cross and she should let you continue to do it.

Oh I also dab my own nose first when he's watching andthen ask if I can do his so that he knows what I'm about to do. He's got quite cooperative if I do that.

Hi Flic

Hope you get your little one's sore skin sorted out on Friday. My DS has had eczema for about three months now. We first went to our local pharmacy who just gave us some aqueous cream and it did seem to help. More recently my HV looked at it and prescribed a different cream called Double Base. She said it often helps just to try new creams as there's quite a bit of choice. she said to put it on 3/4 times a day which i do. It's always gone in the morning and much worse by the evening and like you, it's not nice wiping the area as it looks so sore. He has it on both cheeks and under his chin and he can look very blotchy on a bad day :sadface:

doesn't seem to bother him but then difficult to know!

Hope your GP can help.

xx

Hiya,

I used to have double base for my skin but it didn't work, neither did the aqueous cream which is how I ended up on cetraben.

Hopefully the GP will sort us out on Friday. If she can just confirm it for me and give me something to clear it up a bit then I can get on top of it and get moisturising!! I do my face 4 times per day when its bad so I'll smother us together!!
