Re: Mummy with Eczema n Allergies
I have eczema too, my hands get really bad. Mine did not get better when I weaned, it's pretty much still the same. Consider how you would feel if you weaned your baby and your skin did not improve. For me it would not be worth it.
One thing I've found that has helped me tremendously is using cutar. My son has severe eczema all over his body and when he turned 2 his dermatologist said we should start using a few drops of this mixed with his lotion (which is eucerin and vaseline mixed together). So I started using it on him and noticed my own hands were doing so much better just from putting it on him. I also have some bad spots of eczema on my arms so I tried it on my arms too and it has really been amazing. I've never found anything that helps like this stuff does, not even steroid ointments (which I've been prescribed MANY). When it's really bad (for me and my son) we mix a few drops of cutar with the steroid (you can use hydrocortizone over the counter if you don't have a prescription) and apply that to the inflamed areas and it clears it right up.
