My boy's skin

It is now cold here in Australia ,, and as the days get colder ,, kids are suffering from stuffy nose and itchy skin.....
My boy suffered from Eczema since he was small and it was frustrating to see him scratch his sensitive skin till he bleed... Those where the old days and Thank goodness I don't want him to suffer again... Although ,, he still have a dry skin,, but not like when he was young with red , blistering skin...

The term Eczema, also called Atopic Dermatitis, includes all kinds of red, blistering, scaly, and itching skin conditions. It appears as an itchy rash of inflamed skin. Eczema can be treated externally with medicated creams or ointments and can be prevented somewhat by keeping the skin well hydrated and moisturized.

I tried almost everything in the market,, from Physician prescribed topical creams to giving him natural treatment of eczema ,, even tried to changed his formula milk to goats milk ,,, But once our doctor said that there are some cases that when kids grow up they will out grow it,, and now he is eczema free ,, but with dry itchy skin during Winter ,,, I can mange it and making sure that I always hydrate his skin , avoiding long baths and just eat healthy .
