Acid Mantle (Cream Mixed with Hydrocortisone) - Is It Safe?

I have a 15 month old son who has extremely sensitive skin and had horrible ezcema (sp?) since he was an infant. We found out that it was mostly caused by an allergy to pet dander so we had to give up our pug. Well, we have been using a prescription cream on him called A-Mantle since he was about 6 months old that our Pediatric Allergist prescribed (who is associated with CHOP). This cream is a hydrocortisone mixed with some other type of cream. We use it on him practically every single day (since he still has ezcema). I specifically...

Vitamin for Baby with Allergies

I need a recommendation on vitamins. My son is allergic to a ton of things, and we're in the process of weaning. But so far all the vitamins I have found have orange, pear, wheat germ, or SOMETHING he can't have in them... Rather than googling infant vitamins and spending hours trying to figure out which has what, I thought I would ask here. The doctor sent me somewhere that didn't help, and he doesn't sell them, so I just need to find a multivitamin for my son (12 mo) so that when he's weaned (we also discussed this with the doctor), he...

Can Prolonged Use of Hydrocortisone Cream Affect Growth of Child?

Hello moms. My 18 month old boy has chronic eczema since he was 6 months old and have been using a hydrocortisone cream prescribed by our pediatrician. We have been applying this cream, a 2.5% formulation cream since he was an infant with varying degrees of eczema relief. He has needed it on a daily basis and we have been applying it twice a day to his ankles, wrists and behind the knee--the areas that are affected. We also use Aquaphor and pretoleum jelly emollients to relieve his dry skin. We have not asked our pediatrician though...

What Products to Use for an Infant Who Has a Rash

Hi I was wondering what products many of you recommend for an infant (2 month old) who has a very bad sandpaper like rash all over her body. Her back is actually peeling today since her skin has been so dry. I did take her to her Pediatrician who ruled out any illness. He stated it may be sensitive skin or she may be having a reaction to a food that I am eating as she also has very bad reflux along with it. I use dreft detergent on all clothes/linens that come into contact with her. I use Eucerin on her skin which does seem to help a...

Naet?

My son has eczema really badly. He has been tested and turned up positive for a number of food and environmental things, which I have been avoiding (in my diet) and trying to keep out of the house (like scented anything). It has helped a tad, but it still gets bad some days, like as if I missed something he's allergic to, and it really never gets better past a certain point. I've tried a LOT of things, but nothing really helps much. I don't want to do steroids, though I will use .5% hydrocortisone to keep things from getting too bad (not to...
