Hi Doc
I took my baby boy (seven months) to the paed the other day and he was diagnosed with eczema. He has little dry patches on his back and thighs. I was prescribed soap (I can't remember the name) and physiogel cream to apply to the rash. The treatment has worked really well and the rash has cleared beautifully. I would just like to find out if I need to continue using the physiogel as a moisturizer or should I only use when the rash appears and use something like bennets aqueous as a daily moisturizer.

Continue to use the Physiogel, it is an excellent moisturiser. The secret of eczema treatment is to keep the skin well moisturised.

My daugter of 3 years have eczema from 4 moths. I have used a lot of procuts but is currently using a mixture of Creame Classique ointment and persivate. I also bath her in the Creame classique ointment and I must say that her eczema is much better. You really can try this
