RE: “How do I handle my toddler’s eczema?” (The New Times, June 28).
Dear Tracy, as a mother of a six-month-old who also had similar skin issues, I would like to share what worked for our daughter. Our doctor recommended we use a cleanser called Emolium and then I did my own research and began using Aquaphor after bathing her every night with warm water Emolium. The result is that her dry patches of skin are all gone.
And as Dr Pande suggested, don’t use harsh chemicals to wash her clothing or on her skin, and dress her in natural fibers such as cotton. I hope your baby gets better.
