Q.

Eczema

My 6 month old has had dry, flaky skin from birth. I wash and moisturize his face with Epizone 40 cream, and it goes away for a few days then comes back. Is there anything more effective that I can use.

Young babies with eczema and dry skin do well with Physiogel AI cream. Try this and see if it helps your baby. It is quite expensive.
