Every Parent's Nightmare....Eczema!!

Yes, it is official. My nightmare is here. Ziyi's been diagnosed with eczema. She has dry patches on her arms, thighs, and tummy. These are controllable using Ezerra Cream. Unfortunately there are a few patches on her thigh which look quite serious. Her doctor prescribed Candacort (steroidal anti-fungal cream), Bactroban (antibiotic) and Ceradan (moisturizer). 

With this allergy, her cough and stuffy nose are not leaving her alone, just yet. 2nd generation anti-histamine was prescribed to ease her stuffy nose so that she could sleep better at night.

No known cause of her allergies for the time being but doctor suspected house dust mites to be the number 1 culprit. 

She has to use shower gel with a pH 5.5 and must be Sulphate free too. I've bought her Sukin brand Botanical Shower Gel to try and I hope it helps. I wonder if there's actually a cure for eczema??

If you suspect that your child has eczema (atopic dermatitis) you should see an allergy & immunology specialist.
