Q.

Eczema

My son has been disgnosed by pediatrician at 6 weeks with eczema. Every so often he skin would flare up with red pimples and an outbreak. it would last for a week. At this time we use epimax for his skin. It absorbs so quick and we have to rub on frequently. The pimples would get red, then would go dark ( dark patch) then it would have dry patches. PLease help it seems to be itchy.

This does sound like eczema and EpiMax is a good treatment for eczema. The problem with eczema is that the rash keeps on recurring and is very itchy. It would be best for your baby to be seen by a paediatric allergy expert as he should be tested for possible food allergies and also his rash must be properly diagnosed so that he can be placed on the safest and best treatment for this rash.
