Eczema cheeks

We've dealt with dry cheeks forEVER with Isaac.
His little cheeks will break out with eczema patches SO bad
that they'll start to bleed!
We use everything...but, someone can't keep their fingers out of
their mouth..
and food off their face...
so, this is what we get.

I have so many OTC products that we use, prescription creams and ointments...
I just rotate them all.

Tonight....I gooped on a gift from Christy.

This is an udder cream...
She sent it a few weeks ago...we tried it...and it worked...
but, like everything else..
it only works for a few days.

I'll let you know how this batch works...
(and don't worry....after 2 minutes of gooping it on...he wipes his face
in my couch...so, most of it is off)

hence...the ineffectiveness of all creams.

Try putting that udder cream on YOUR face and see how you like it! I don't blame him. Find that boy something soft and silky, or at least something that taste good! I just put vaseline on everything, either that or WD 40, and I don't think WD 40 would be a good idea for him.

My little guy had red cheeks all the time! We got Prednicarbate Emollient Cream prescribed to him. So when it flares up, I rub some of that cream on his cheeks until it's practically disappeared, then I take a big glob of Aquafor and put it over where i rubbed in the cream. Then daily I put aquafor on him. It usually helps for a week or more! I found that the double layer of protection worked best. We had tried so many different, creams too, so I feel for you! I hope you find something that works!
