    OX Jess, since my bb's skin is similar to your baby's (LIKE sandpaper) i bought the MUSTELA Cold CREAM.
    the first night i applied, she stopped scratching her tummy in the middle of the night. and after a few nights applying, her tummy is back to her old self, smooth,, and soft,, like how a baby should be.
    thanks for that recommendation.:)

    With my DD, the Dr, after ruling out an allergy via a prick test and controlling the eczema with antibiotics, anti-histamine and cortisone gave us this eczema management plan, which 3 yrs on is working completely -
    avoid soap & shampoo
    use bath oil (eg Hamiltons or QV)- consider bathing on alternate days
    Moisturise - esp after a bath, maybe twice a day (eg: sorbolene, QV cream, or Dermeze - a paraffin heavy duty moisturiser - I found this one the best, not sure if it's avail in HK got it in Oz
    use cotton clothing - don't use sheepskin underlay or woolen blankets. this included our stuff too.
    cover up area to prevent scratching
    avoid enzyme containing washing detergents and consider extra rinse cycle.
    limit exposure to drying environment - heaters / AC.

    Hope this is of some help, but seeing a dermatologist was the best thing I did.

    I was advised by paediatrician to add Oilatum to bath water in winter. My baby's skin seems less dry after doing so.
