My daughter had horrible eczema when she was about that age. We stopped giving her milk and it went away.

Charlie’s soap for Laundry soap. No fabric softener. Gentle soap at bath time and Vanicream lotion. Cleared right up after YEARS of different creams.

Baths with apple cider vinegar or coconut oil. Recommend Dr Peter Lio who is a pediatric eczema specialist. We’ve been seeing him for years. Also if there are smaller problem areas (versus full body) wet wrapping works great.

Check out her diet- since I removed dairy and soy (and reduced gluten), I hardly get any flare ups ! Here’s a great resource: . https://www.eczemalife.com/.../top-12-eczema-itchy-foods

Have you tried Badger Balm? I would coat my son in that right before PJs. It feels (and smells) exactly like the ingredients but worked really well for us!

My kids both have. The oatmeal bath packets gave some relief and good old vaseline after.

Not joking, Crisco shortening. Wish the Dr had told me that before all of the steroids that ruined his skin.

Stop using detergent with fragrance, start using I use this on my kids and myself. We all have eczema. I also use her quench skin frosting and add Vaseline on top as a Barrier. I go between the frosting and coconut oil from Costco. You need to stay on top of it. Once it gets really bad nothing will help but a steroid cream. We use clobetasol propionate when it gets too bad. It only gets really bad when I get lazy with putting the moisturizer on before bed every night. Good luck! https://arirosebodycare.com/.../ari.../products/honey-child

Our Pediatrician suggested baby oil followed by Aveno lotion in the tub. It’s worked great for my two kids.

We found relief with CeraVe. We also have had great success with O’Keefe’s Skin Repair Body Lotion. I even use it now because it keeps my skin hydrated all day. We also found pulling her out of the bath and immediately putting the lotion on without drying her at all was really helpful. I think it just takes trying everything to see what works. And believe me- we bought everything! I hope you find something that works.

A soap less cleanser worked best for us. Then Vanicream. Something like this . https://www.dermstore.com/product_Free+and+Clear+Liquid

Eucerin eczema relief cream. Fragrance free contains ceramides and colloidal oatmeal to help with the itching. It is very rich so a little dab goes a long way. Hope this helps.

I will tell you this, removal of adenoids/tonsils will make it completely go away, look into it. I sell Melaleuca and their lotion renew helps so much with this, all natural, no toxins. You do have to join my shop club to purchase, they have amazing products in general for everything.

No soap. When my son was really bad the only thing to help was amoxicillin.

We jist started using oatmeal honey goat milk soap from bend. com Also, vanicream is a really great product. Any product you use should say "fragrance free" not unscented. Unscented just means there was ascent but they added another chemical to mask the scent.

My Pediatrician advised me to bathe my son is soapless wash. Afterwards, pat dry, don't rub. When the skin is still damp, slather petroleum jelly. It absorbs right into the damp skin. It worked wonders for my son. AND it's cheap, safe & non-toxic.
