My 2 Year Old Has Extremely Dry Skin, Any Recommendations on a Good Lotion?

Hello, My 2 year old has started getting dry patches all over, especially on his behind. He scratches so hard he draws blood. If I see him I always stop him, but he usually scratches in his sleep. I keep his fingernails clipped for the scratching part. I've tried Eucerin, Aquaphor, and various other lotions. I've cut back on bath time, I don't let him soak in soapy water. I've started to just wipe him down with just water instead of soap and water. Does anyone have any suggestions on lotions etc to help with his uncomfortable itching....

9 Year Old with Eczema

Hi! My 9 year old daughter keeps developing a big rash on her back legs. The over the counter lotions do not seem to help and tend to sting her. I do not really want to start her on a steroid cream. Any ideas? J.Clare
