I Have a 4 Month Old Baby with Eczema

My 4 month old baby has eczema. No matter what I use, it doesn't seem to take it away. It always comes back and when it flares up it is really bad. He will scratch his head so bad he causes himself to bleed. I wash his clothes in Dreft and downy free fabric softeners. I also have him on Neocate formula as he has a milk basded allergy.
