You are using very mild treatments for your son's eczema that is not helping him. Seeing that his ecezema is very severe it would be best for him to be seen by a dermatologist [skin specialist] or by a paediatric allergist. Eczema can cause many problems for children especially lack of sleep and constant itching and discomfort.Your son will benefit from more effective eczema treatment.
