Cecil gets awful patches of eczema behind his knees and at his elbows. I generally make up a cream of Neosporin, Aquaphor and hydrocortisone cream and slather it on him at night. The patches definitely flare up when he has a cold, but he's on the tail end of one and the patches aren't really going down.
I asked the pedi about it at his 18-month appointment last week and she recommended giving him Benadryl or Claritin to help. I know that Zyrtec absolutely zonks him out and I'm nervous about giving him daily doses of any of the above. What works for your kid with eczema? Poor kid just itches and scratches little raw patches.
