Q.

Excema

Hi Doc

I bath my baby (14 weeks) with Epizone E, and then apply Physiogel to her skin. Her dry skin is substantially under control now, except of the odd (red) flare up around her neck area and behind her knees (folds of her skin).

Shall I contine with this routine? A friend suggested SBR Repair cream instead of the Physiogel?

I do not apply any baby oil or baby powder as I was told that this is bad for her excema. Is this correct?

I wash her hair with Elizabeth Annes' s shampoo.

Thank you.

You are doing very well. Continue with the Physiogel after bathing yur baby. You are using the correct shampoo. Do not use baby oil or powder.
