OT - Hand Rash - it's eczema
After another trip to the pedi. This time we actually got to see our regular instead of another in the practice. M has Dyshidrotic Eczema. It's a form of eczema that only happens on the hands and feet. I did some research and it turns out that DH and I also have very light cases of it. We got some strong topical cream so hopefully it will be under control in a week. One issue with an answer!!

Melissa - Mommy to Sebastian, born 9/28/07 @ 7 lbs 7 oz and 20.75 in. At docs at 12 months: 27 pounds and 32 in! Good grief! GERD - currently on Prevacid suspension (liquid equivalent of 45 mg a day). Allergic to dairy, soy, eggs, wheat, all treenuts, peanuts, fish, shellfish, peas, sesame, bananas, barley, coconut, dust, dust mite, dog, cat, latex. Seasonal allergies. Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS). Neocate only - no solids - until further notice (drinks and loves water, too). Loves his doggie, our rescued Treeing Walker Coonhound, Louise, even though he is allergic to her. Louise will make your doctor a homemade pie if you would like her to. PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(
Ugghhh. I'm so sorry! I really thought it wasn't...that is a load of crap about it doesn't appear on the hands and feet, I see now. That sucks for your little guy. You know what works wonders for Sebastian's eczema? This combination prescription our allergist gave us - it is a mix of hydrocortizone and Aquaphor. It comes in a big tub, and we use it on his hot spots. I suppose it wouldn't be a good solution for hands, though...

yea, that would be rough to treat his hands esp. if he is a finger/thumb sucker. sorry to hear that. can he maybe wear socks/gloves @ night with some lotion on there?

Hey Melissa - no worries! I was quite surprised myself especially to find out that DH and I have a light case of it too. We've been using Cetaphil soap for when he washes his hands and Aveeno lotion to try and keep the moisture in. The oatmeal is supposed to help. So far they seem to at least be keeping from getting any worse. I am going to switch all soaps in the house to Cetaphil.

Picture: This is what happens when you raise a kid on health food and they get ahold of a Coke! Bad mom, that soda is NOT on the reflux diet.
UPDATE: Isaiah is now 12 and off meds! He is doing great, eating again and hopefully will be catching up in the growing department. I am still in the "hoping it sticks" phase, but we're so happy that he's better!
eczema has dozens of wonderful little relatives....various types with some big word followed by 'eczema'. Some types like to live on mostly hands and feet, or faces, or behind the knees and elbows...sigh. The 'garden variety' tends to show up in the places Melissa mentioned, but it really doesn't like to limit itself. I'm feeling a little unhappy with all varieties of eczema right now, as I am covered from head to toe with it (well....my feet actually do seem unaffected lol) and am itching like crazy. Glad you got an answer to one of the issues, anyway! The strong steroid cream does help, much faster and more effective than hydrocortizone otc.

hey there. my husband has horrible, horrible eczema. he tried those really potent steroidal creams for many months but they did not help. the only thing that works the best is good old garden variety hydrocortisone, cetaphil, and aveeno.
Check with your
doctor first!
