My 2 year old son has had frequent flare ups with his exzema on his butt, but quickly go away with a few domeborro soaks, skipping baths and aveeno eczema cream. This most recent flare has been here for almost 2 months. I've been to the pediatrician, we tried steroid cream, then anti-fungal cream, free and clear products. I switched to natural diapers that are chlorine, fragrance, dye, plastic free. "free & Clear" soaps, even no soap. He doesn't eat dairy (mucus build up causes reperatory problems) or sugars (cause its bad for him)....i am out of ideas!!! I also need to point out he can't use Zinc oxide which is in almost every diaper rash cream, it literally takes the skin off his bottom in a day!!! Can anyone else suggest something I have not tried? I'm desperate, I can't listen to him tell me about the "boo boo" on his butt anymore! Help!View Thread
