Any excema "experts" out there?

Ava has been battling a rash for about 2-3 weeks now. It looks like little tiny pin prick sized bumps, mainly concentrated on her inner arms from wrist to elbow, the backs of her hands, her knees, and some scattered over her upper legs, and now recently a few on her tummy and neck. Most of them are flesh colored, but some flare up and become more red. She doesn't act like they itch or hurt. For the last few weeks we have been trying to limit baths and I have been putting a fragrance free sensitive skin Aveeno cream on her arms and legs twice daily. DH wonders if it could be excema, but I always envisioned that as more scaly and itchy-- maybe I am totally wrong though. Does anyone have a LO with excema? If so, does this sound like it could be that? Otherwise, I am trying to decide if I should take her in. If I do, do you think I should just take her to the ped., or a dermatologist? I always feel silly calling the ped. about rashes and wonder if they think I am being an overly worried mom!

Re: Any excema "experts" out there?

  • I hesitated to answer since I'm not 100% sure because I think Katen's looked different from your description, but since nobody else did, I'm not sure that sounds like eczema. Can you google pics of eczema to compare?  You can try to put a 1% hydrocortizone cream on it to see if it improves. If not you'll kind of know. Aveeno (even the sensitive) is also one of the more chemicall-y brands. Maybe try Aquaphor, Burts Bees baby bee lotion (my personal favorite), or California Baby calming cream.
    Nobody said life would be easy. Just that it would be worth it.
