Common Questions and Answers about Eczema relief bath

I bought the Johnson's baby eczema cream and the ped said that it should help. Well, today I noticed that the patches of eczema (if that's what it is) seem to be spreading. Is there anything OTC that I could give him or should I just take him back to the ped?
Recently talking with someone, I came to the idea that it would be nice to hear from others who have eczema and what things they do or have done (with and without success) for their treatments. So, what have other people done to help alleviate symptoms of eczema (perhaps cure?). What have you done that did NOT work for your particular case. Realizing that eczema medications don't always work for everyone and those that don't work for some work for others....
Hi! I am a 28 year old with severe eczema, diagnosed back in 2001 (as an adult, never had this as a child, just severe allergies). I was on elidel, protopic back then and my ecemza was mild. In 2004 I started getting worse and started allergy shots. This helped for awhile. I then moved to GA in 2006 and my eczema has gone crazy!!
My 4yr old daughter has had eczema since she was 6 months old. I'm so frustrated at how I can do very little to help her. As soon as I think I have controlled it she'll flare up with no rhyme or reason. I'm hoping to find some relief for her on this site. We've tried so many different things, that I'm losing hope. She will be starting Kindergarten next year and I just can't see her being able to concentrate while scratching all day. Any suggestions are welcomed.

Basicly a couple of cups of quick oats in a warm (not hot) bath. Hope you get some relief soon.
i also have eczema breakouts in other parts of my body but ive been using Aveeno soothing bath treatments and its been working, it relieves my itching and the eczema is disappearing, you can put it in your bath water or if your not taking a bath at the time and need some relief you can make a paste out of it and rub it on the skin that way....just pour the aveeno powder in the palm of your hand and damp it with water making the paste as thick as you like....
I know a 28-year old woman here who has had eczema all her life and has found much relief using oregano oil. After all my research, I'm really thinking that the bad case of poison ivy in mid-2010 was the catalyst for this eczema, since I NEVER had any type of skin condition like this in my life. Some say the oil of this plant remains in your body for several years. I tend to believe it. Have you ever heard of long-term dermatitis developing from poison ivy, oak or summac?
My fiance' (22yr male) had his first bout of itching in Kuwait while he was in the military. After much trial and error the doctors diagnosed him with eczema and prescribed a long term course of topical steroids. The eczema has always been localized to scars and a few other places and seasonal (with winter). Two weeks ago he broke out in an incredible rash covering his torso, thighs and now nearly everywhere.
I know what it is like to get into a bath, KNOWING you aren't supposed to and it will only make you worse in another day or two. If the relief you are feeling is from the warm bath (it does temporaily help) then try taking just a tepid bath, with a couple of tablespoons of olive oil...lie there and float and let the oil coat you...this will help with hydration provided you don't stay in too long. Also, take one benydry tablet before your bath, and then get cozy in bed when you get out.
I have a 3-year-old son who has had chronic eczema since he was 6 months. Treatment initialy started with a skin biopsy, as the derm. had no idea what was affecting his skin. It turned out to be eczema. In the past 2.5 years, we have tried everything to eliminate his flare ups. Normally, we treat patches with protopic .1% on a daily basis. However, he often gets various patches that don't respond, and we then have to go to clobex or psorcon.
The cortisone shots were my only true relief, which lasted exactly two weeks. I received 80 units of some sort. The Psorcon-E helps, but the second dermatologist I saw thought it was two strong to keep using. Now I have chickenpox-like scars on my legs and lesser scars on my arms. My right leg is flaring up just like it did in Feb., so I am afraid the entire cycle is starting again, and I just started to get better in late Sept.
Keeping the affected area moistened can promote skin healing and relief of symptoms. Light therapy using ultraviolet light can help control eczema. UVA is mostly used, but UVB and Narrow Band UVB are also used. Ultraviolet light exposure carries its own risks, particularly eventual skin cancer from exposure. The first and primary recommendation is that people suffering from eczema shouldn't use detergents of any kind on their skin unless absolutely necessary.
When my husband was a young child he found relief from eczema that covered his legs, in the ocean beach of Hawaii. He thinks it was in Waikiki but was too little to know. It was suggested by a local native Hawaiian. I hope it can cure that baby too. My new doctor today told me to use rubbing alcohol and vinegar in equal parts to rinse my ears to prevent the cycle after the ear infection heals. This will clean and remove moisture without over drying the skin. Hope it works...
Good luck to you getting the appointment with the doc you mentioned. I hope you can find relief for your child. I know these allergies and the itching and eczema are so uncomfortable for them.
For a while I would go about every other day with a bath. But of course kids are kids and need a bath, so I refrained from him sitting in the bath and would take him in the shower with me. When he was a baby I found it easier to have him in his seat while I wash me and get done then bring him in and wash him and then take him out. That as well helped so much. Water can only dry out the skin more and sitting in a warm bath with soapy water can really dry it out more.

They also have cortisone for eczema relief. My husband has eczema and his feet get so dry and cracked. He sometimes uses diaper rash cream too. Poor baby, hope you find relief soon.
