Sorry to hear this.

I have had mild forms of eczema over the years ... controllable all .. but to watch your child go through a severe case .... I can truely imagine. Cry

When my son is out of his medicated cream he needs something really thick to keep from drying out. We use Gene's Vitamin E Creme with Swiss Collagen Complex. It's about $7 at Sam's Club. The whole family uses it actually. We love it.

i used to have ecezma.. but its gone now. I have read that you cant fully get rid of it and u have outbreaks, usually depending on the weather... but idk, mines hasnt come back. It used to in the heat. 

Anyways, i think a big part of what made mines go away was either evening primrose oil, fish oil, or flaxseed oil (pills). Sorry i dont recall which one it was.. but if u google them it'll tell you which one is good for eczema. 
I also used coconut oil, olive oil, and almond oil.. but i honestly dont recall if my eczema was already gone by then.. but i do think it helped it to stay away (kept it moisturized). 
good luck

Thanks ya'll! Hug You have been immensely helpful! I'm about to run her water for the bleach bath and head out to a few stores. Hoping that after this week we see some improvement.

In a thread (can't remember where) someone said that they used urine therapy to effectively clear up their son's eczema.

She said that her son didn't even care when she found out that she was using his urine since it worked.

i haven't tried it, but someone posted this article a while back

http://www.webmd.com/skin-problems-and-treatments/eczema/news/20090427/bleach-baths-may-help-kids-with-ezcema

my son used to have it pretty bad...but using free and clear detergents, mattress and pillow covers, and medications helped...also i do not bathe him daily (let me clarify-i do not submerge him in water daily...i wash him thoroughly twice daily though)

our derm said it isn't as necessary for little ones to be submerged in water daily because in most cases they don't perspire as much nor do they get as dirty as we do.

i tried cetaphil, aveeno, and something else and they are all too light for his extremely dry skin. I use eucerin (in the jar) or jergens shea +vaseline....i know some ppl think vaseline is bad for the skin but it helps to keep his skin moisturized alll day in the winter
