Re: Another eczema question..edited: look at pics??

Since its not an emergency I can't call my pediatrician until Monday. I tried slathering my baby's face in vaseline and a little bit of lanolin and put her down for a nap. When she got up, the redness was almost competely gone though it was still a little bit bumpy. Then I nursed her and after I was done, her face was red and irritated again! Maybe it is our laundry detergent and when her cheek is pressed against my arm while I nurse her it irritates her skin and gives her eczema?

We really can't afford any fancy detergent but I always buy whatever "free and clear" detergent is on sale. Right now we use All Free & Clear on everything, diapers, her clothes, our clothes, and always double rinse. Do you think that could be the cause of the eczema? But its nowhere else on her body, JUST her cheeks!

What detergents work well with your LOs with eczema? I would be willing to spend a little more on detergent if it will clear up her face!

Any thoughts?
