How to treat eczema in children?

My baby is 5 months old and has very bad eczema . I start noticing on the second month how dry the skin is and almost cracking and nothing helps.the creams the doctor prescribes just bleached the skin… and goes back to the same when I stop using it.
Any recommendations on healing eczema rash


Did they prescribe Cortisone or Hydrocortisone ? I went through the same thing with my daughter. They say to only use a tad bit and not often but I didn’t find the point because it wasn’t helping when I used it infrequently. And like you said, if I used more it would turn her skin patches white. I use creams rather than lotions; they’re thicker and hydrates the skin better. We alternate between plain Aquaphor, Cetaphil cream, and Aveeno Eczema. We stay away from any scented creams or washes. Also we heavily limit her dairy and give her Almond/Oat milk instead of cow milk. I know your baby is still young but something to keep in mind. Dairy horribly activates eczema flare ups.
