Real Mom: My Baby Has Eczema

Eczema is a common problem among babies. See how first-time mom Melissa changed her family's lifestyle to help alleviate baby Ethan's sever eczema.
Ethan and Melissa Living with Dry Skin and Eczema

When my son, Ethan, turned 3 months old, he was diagnosed with eczema. Like any first-time mother, I was crushed as the eczema progressed and expanded over every part of his body. By his fourth month, he had severe eczema. Eczema is severe form of dry skin. Unlike traditional dry skin, eczema frequently has an underlying allergy -- in Ethan's case, a food allergy. Each doctor and specialist I saw prescribed the same thing: hydrocortisone cream. The cream would help some areas, but doctors didn't recommended using it often or over Ethan's full body because of its high potency.

I knew there had to be more I could do.
