I don't know if you already found treatments for your child but I'll just want to share hehehe.. My son also was diagnosed of skin asthma when he was 6 months. Now he's almost 2 and still suffers from it almost everyday because of the cold weather here in Baguio. The first time we brought him, my pedia gave us couple of meds and lotions. Some oral liquid meds for allergies, ceramide soap (250 pesos), the oatmeal lotion (250 pesos) and hydrocortisone lotion (280 pesos now) in which you have to mix the two when applying it but now he only uses the lotions. The lotions don't have specific brand names maybe because they have suppliers who are the ones making or mixing it already to be more affordable given branded cost too much. Now he's just using the lotions and still give best results. So, I'm always worried every time the lotions are out of stock. So now I'm looking for other treatments especially natural. I've also read that VCO works. So I just want to ask if it works for your baby. Thank you.View Thread
