Q.

babys eczema

My boy is 6 months old and has had eczema at least 3 weeks after birth, up until now. We were using Nan ha and have now switched to isomil . I am using advantan but doesn''t seem to be helping. I''m just concerned about the prolonged use of advantan as well.
Do you suggest I see a paediatrician or can you give me a list of Dermatologists in the Mt Edgecombe or Umhlanga areas.

Paediatrician

I too am concerned about using Advantan on your baby's skin. It would be best to ask your son to see a paediatric allergist. I suggest Dr Ahmed Manjra at the Wentworth Medical Centre in Durban.
