My son had a severe eczema break-out at 12 months. We took him to the doctor and he was diagnosed with a dairy allergy and prescribed steroids. His skin cleared but we did not want him to be dependent on steroids, so we started him on a strict skin-care regimen of mild soap and Bebebalm 2x a day. Now for his flare-ups, we no longer need to use steroids. His skin usually clears up in 2-3 days using Bebebalm. Using Bebebalm has also helped us cure his diaper rash. He has not had a rash ever since we started using Bebebalm.
