Lotions have never worked for me. I get a prescription for hydrocortisone cream from my doctor. Watch out, though: Hydrocortisone can darken the skin with prolonged use.

check this website: youngliving.com - my aunt just emailed this to me for my daughter who has Eczema.  Below are two testimonies.

My granddaughters, had eczema and I also used the Tender Tush all over their little body's after bath time and I cleared it up. Only once in a while it will reappearand Kimberlee will come and say, Grandma I have alligator skin again. I love these products.

I have a fantastic testimony about extremely dry skin, just on my hands.
I have had it for many years, tried dozens of lotions, nothing worked, so
bad that I had to wear latex gloves to put on nylons or they would snag
all over, couldn't run my hands over silk material or it would snag.
About a month ago I decided to try KidScents Tender Tush, I only use it
at bedtime (it's pretty runny &you use very very little, or it stays on
your hands for at least an hour). In about 4 days I HAD NO MORE SKIN
SNAGS, NO MORE DRY PIECES OF SKIN on my hands, it was amazing. I now use it every other night. I still can't believe my dry hands are 'normal'!!!

I don't know of anything that will reverse the effects, but:

Stay out of the sun as much as you can! Sunlight will make the treated areas darken faster, even if you don't notice the rest of your skin tanning as quickly.

The treated/darkened skin might lighten over time. My treated areas did, but maybe that's because I'm indoors most of the time. I hope this helps.

Nymphe - My daughter hasn't been tested for allergies (her doctor said she was too young).  Has your baby been tested?  If so, what age?

My daughter also suffers from multiple food allergies - she can't have wheat, dairy, citrus, eggs, and peanut butter - I've substituted with all organic based foods  and slowly put things back into her diet - we've had to subsititute with Soy/Rice based products, and since pasta has wheat - we use brown rice pasta, etc...  It's been tough, but as she's gotten older we've been able to add foods back into her diet slowly, for instance she can have cheese, but no milk, and we incorporate a little wheat (not too much)...it's been tough, but since we did this at a young age - she knows what she can't have and she's very disciplined and will let her teachers at school know that she can't have a certain food, b/c it makes her itchy.

He got his first tests at 5 months old because his skin was literally dissolving, I was worried about the long-term affect of the steroids, and he was being breastfed at the time. He is allergic to so many things, it is ridiculous and has developed asthma on top of that! He is almost three now, but he is still allergic to many things...he is just now able to eat turkey bacon (nitrates).

Unfortunately, he forgets that he cannot just grab anything he wants like big brother does. I may have to homeschool him util first or second grade until he does get it.

My Eczyma comes from my  dad as heridity. I have It on the lower part of my feet. when I as pregnant it was very very itchy and the strioids the docs gave burnt my skin and they become wrinkly.
 
So I stopped them and looked for something natural and found out that we have to keep it moist the whole day. so I now apply Neem oil after shower and neem works very very well for skin.
 
I have no other problem just the patches now. Will work on them later.
