My DS developed eczema also at 3 months, and we've tried heaps of things. We tried Robertsons formula, Dermaveen, QV cream. But something that did work for him initially was Moogoo cream, http://www.moogoo.com.au/index.htm
But after a bit he developed a bit of an allergy to it for some reason.
I'm now trying Graham's cream, but just waiting on it to come in the mail. I've seen a naturopath also, who says the eczema stems from the gut, so i've got this powder stuff that I put on my nipple when he has a feed. Also if you take really good quality fish oil tablets (if your bubs bf) they are supposed to be really helpful for the skin.
I only bath him once a week, and I put Dermaveen oatmeal powder in the bath which leaves a nice coating on his skin.
It's so frustrating though watching them scratch, you will need to make sure you keep his nails short.
I use steroid cream on him when it's really red & itchy, but otherwise just really moisturize him twice a day.

My little boy starting getting eczema as soon as he hit 3mths. We went to the doctor who suggested antroquoril because it had gotten quite bad. It does cure the eczema almost instantly but we are really hesitant to use it because its a steroid cream. We are doing the whole bath with QV/baking soda etc and then moisturing immeditately. Since then we've had a second opinion and second doctor said elidel because its not a steroid. But since then we've heard of a cancer link!!! Tried egocort to but told that's also not good to use for more than 7 days. Are there any other mums out there with bubs with eczema and what do you find is working??? I would love any suggestions? My second boy had it as well but not as bad and soon outgrew it. Also I'm wondering if the heat is also causing it to flare up. Would love to hear from other mums????
