Q.

POST 1687 ATT: DOC

Thanx for your advise,he didn' t say anything he just checked her and asked me what is it and when did it start. My answer to him was that she' s having problem of Eczema and he checked her and prescribed the medication for.

As you said that the Advantan Fatty Ointment is too strong for her, can i use the Advantan Cream (normal)? What about the medication? as she does' t want it?

Thanx in advance

You cannot use Advantan in such a young baby. The strongest ointment you can safely use is Mylocort ointment applied once a day. This ointment can be used on any part of her body. Also use a good moisturiser after bathing her.Epimax is very popular and is effective.
