Dermatologist Update!

Since Daylen was 6 weeks old he had been having skin troubles and we finally got a name to his condition!

It's called eczema craquele which means the skin "cracks"! According to the dermatologist the skin stings in the cracks when anything is applied but Daylen has never showed any discomfort or itching!

We were given 2 different medications, one is for his arms and legs which is a compound mixed with vasoline, and the other is for his face which is less effective to the tissue! Some creams break the skin and cause the crack look and she things thats why his cheeks are always cracked looking and rosy!

We were also given new bathing instructions to help from drying him out!

Hopefully we won't need to go back but she says that Daylen's little palms are already showing sign's of his father's skin/iron condition in his hands!

  1. I'm glad to know that it wasn't anything more serious. My pediatrician told us to use baby oil in the bath water and try not to use "hot" water, instead use warm, that seemed to work some. Also, Aveeno has baby lotion specifically for Eczema, but it's quit expensive, and we also use that. Winter time is the pits for people with Eczema. I hope the medicated ointments work for you.

    God Bless!
