Baby Eczema

My daughter used to have face eczema; it started when she was 3 months until 12 months. I would say from 3 to 6 months these are the worst eczema flare up on her face, and it so frustrating because we don’t know what is making it trigger. Her doctor had given me a steroids cream for her face but she told me not to prolong the use of steroids because over time they can lead to thinning of the skin. The doctor only has advice me to use it on her face once a day, for 2 weeks and then stop using it. It did disappear, but once I stop using it, it came back again. So I came up of an idea to at least help lessen the eczema. We have notice is that when it is cold and damp, her eczema will flare up quickly, so we did turn the heating on even if it is summer, and I attach her mittens on her sleep suits and long sleeve shirts, to prevent her from scratching. Warm bath every night before bed and change her soap to dove moisturizing. It did work out great! Now that she is 20 months old, it has totally disappeared.
