I am sorry to hear that,

I would recommend using a mild steroid cream (1 % HC ) available without a prescription, this can be used twice daily for a couple of weeks, and then consulting your pediatrician if there is no response,

Help prevent or treat eczema by keeping your child's skin from getting dry or itchy and avoiding triggers that cause flare-ups. Try these suggestions:

Kids should take short baths or showers in warm (not hot) water. Use mild unscented soaps or non-soap cleansers and pat the skin dry before putting on cream or ointment. Teens should use unscented makeup and oil-free facial moisturizers.

Ask your doctor if it's OK to use oatmeal soaking products in the bath to help control itching.

Kids should wear soft clothes that "breathe," such as those made from cotton. Wool or polyester may be too harsh or irritating.

Keep your child's fingernails short to prevent skin damage from scratching. Try having your child wear comfortable, light gloves to bed if scratching at night is a problem.

Kids should avoid becoming overheated, which can lead to flare-ups.

Kids should drink plenty of water, which adds moisture to the skin.

Get rid of known allergens in your household and help your child avoid others, like pollen, mold, and tobacco smoke.

Stress can make eczema worse. Help your child find ways to deal with stress (like exercise, deep breathing, or talking to a counselor).
