Eczema


Vera is having a bad tummy rash. To prevent her from scratching, we put a tummy binder over it. That made it worse.
We've brought her to the National Skin Centre. A quick skin sample test confirmed that it wasn't fungal or scabies. Hope this steroidal cream works and we can stop splinting her hands.

Hi my son has that too when he is a baby. Just wanna to share what we did: we started with steriod creams, when it got slightly better, we started using Physiogel AI cream then onto Mustela Stelatopia.

Hi May,
Try dabbing with oatmeal water for temporary relief between steroid applications (grab a handful of rolled oats and secure within a baby towel. Pop into warm water to soak).

Thanks for the suggestions everyone! Skin doc put her on Physiogel Cleanser and St. Ives moisturiser which seems to be improving the condition.

Poor sweet girl! I do hope the steroid cream is helping! I keep forgetting to come catch up on blogs.

Hello May,
I was googling for support for Trisomy 18 in Singapore and chanced on your site. I'm 3 months along and found out my baby in-utero most likely has Trisomy 18. It's been devastating and I thought of contacting you to... connect, I guess.
My email is 9racewan@gmail.com It starts with a 'nine' and not a 'G'.
Hope to hear from you.
