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...

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...

Psoriasis or Eczema

I have these patches of dry skin on my ankles. It's either Psoriasis or Eczema, I have been to the different doctors and they say both. I have tried everything I can get my hands on to get rid of it but nothing works. Some things work temporarily, but nothing long term. Please any advice on what I can use to get rid of it or at least get it under control.

Why Does My Daughter Have Mysterious Hives?

My daughter is days away from 2 and for the last 3 days she has had mysterious hives on her face, chest, belly, and back. Today she got a little bit on her legs and in her armpits. We took her to the doctor and they were stumped like me since she hasn't eaten anything new lately and we haven't changed anything about our laundry detergent, sheets, or clothes and she hasn't done anything new. We went to Arizona on November 9th and got home the 18th back to VA. While in AZ (the 15th), she got strep and was on Amoxicillin for 10 days. I'm...

Skin Propblem on My 21 Month Old- Don't Know What It Is???

http://i877.photobucket.com/albums/ab339/3princes1princess/DSC03201.jpg My daughter has had this weird...shall we say skin issue, in the groin (where her leg meets the torso) for at least a month. It has not spread, changed, dried up....nothing and I am starting to get worried. I am only worried about the raised sack like things. The rest of the red dots are her diaper rash (gets them often). It does not bother her or itch as far as I know. Of course we got new insurance and it will not cover pre-existing conditions (which...

14 Month Old with Excema and Psoriasis

Hi, my almost 14 month old son has been having major skin issues since about April when I slowly started to wean him. It started out as excema behind the knees which was treated and gone, then some impetigo on his upper arms that turned into weeping sores, then cleared up with a very heavy duty corticosteriod. Then a few weeks later he came down with some sort of virus and shortly after that had these horrible bumps all over his body...I had never seen anything like it. I took him to a dermatologist and they had to take a biopsy out of...
