What is eczema? The definition says--An acute or chronic non-contagious inflammation of the skin often caused by allergy and characterized by itching, scaling and blistering.
Melissa's definition-- A big pain in the butt to have to deal with, heartbreaking experience to watch your child go through, irritating, horrible skin condition that causes crazy itchiness to no avail!
The eczema started spreading and getting worse, this prompted another visit to his pediatrician..This time I was told it was a severe form of cradle cap that had spread down to his face and that baby acne was not the answer. I tried to bring up the fact that I thought it was eczema but the doctor was sure he was correct. I was instructed to use selsun blue on his head and the rough patches on his skin and within just a few baths it should improve and his skin should start to clear up.

I made a follow up appointment with Logan's pediatrician and he prescribed me some better hydro-cortisone cream for flare ups. Now the battle begins on trying to figure out what causes his flare ups and how to keep them under control.
