Q.

Eczema

My 2 year old son has excema. The doctor prescribed Advantan Milk cream, which I have to apply only once a day and apply very thinly. I also bath him with Epizone E ointment. I changed his washing powder to Sunlight baby soft. Is this treatment sufficient? And what shampoo may I use?

You should not use the Advantan Milk every day and not at all on his face or neck as it is a strong cortisone treatment. Only use this treatment when his rash is troublesome.Bath him with Epizone E and then apply Epimax Cream to all the affected areas on his body
