Sunny days, I am using 1% sigmacort on his face and body so the lowest strength already. DS needs steroid cream on for 3 days straight sometimes only 2 days, but 2 days off and his face flares up pretty bad. His body can go without steroids for 3-4 days.
Today his got a flare up and is scratching all his face and legs till he bled on his thigh so I had to put on a wet dressing!
His now just started on steroid again after 2 days off on his face and 4 days off on his body. He is so unsettled and constantly crying unless I'm holding him and talking to him.
How can I wean him?
I've heard of the oats, I will try tomorrow. How much oats to put in the sock? do I fill up the sock?
I put some olive oil in his bath tonight - will see tomorrow if his skin is smooth.
Yer just half fill the sock and leave it under the tap while running the bath then rub it all over him...I always only use the steriod cream on the really bad parts of the body not all over then the other cream all over her even over the steriod cream...And always make sure the nails are really short, i really hope his skin clears up for you.
