Eczema Patches

Bee has been so much better lately, very few outbreaks and only occasional hives.  Our only problem is the eczema patches behind her knees and on the inside of her elbows.  I feel like we cannot get rid of them!

We are avoiding all her known allergens (as best we can) which should lower her number of outbreaks.

We use Vanicream lotion each night.  

She does tub soaks followed by lotion to keep her skin hydrated.

She drinks plenty of water.

We work hard to keep her from itching-she lives in footie pj's to make it difficult for her to scratch.

Next on our list is to add in some probiotics which might help.

Apparently there are widely differing opinions on the use of probiotics for those with eczema.

To use them or to not?

But it seems like no matter what we do, the eczema still pops up when we least expect it.  Unbelievably frustrating!!!!
