It has been with Yvette for around 2 months. And during these periods, I tried using various types of cream on the affected area and the result was not disappointing.
I started off with Gentrisone Cream – which suitable for Allergic and inflammatory dermatitis (eczema), first-degree burn, insect-bitten lesion, secondary bacterial infected dermatitis, dermatomycosis.
I switched to Egocort Cream (after seeking help) – this cream is for relief of skin irritations, itching and rashes due to eczema, dermatitis, sunburn, cosmetics and jewllery.
At the same time, I bathe Yvette with Balneum. It’s a bathing oil that is clinically proven for bathing dry, itchy skin conditions. However, when we went back to Guardian to buy for another bottle, we were told they don’t carry this product anymore. Anyone knows where to get this?
After using Egocort Cream for 3 weeks when this cream no longer worked on Yvette, I switched to Dektarin for a few days before we visited the doctor.
We went for doctor on 09/05/10 for first review as this affects Yvette a lot and she did, wake up in the middle of the night and cry over the itchiness.
She was prescribed with Adezio (cetirizine) – For relief of itch and Prednisolone – To decrease Skin Allergy/Rash. It doesn’t seem to improve the situation as well.
I also switched Hydrocortisone as advised by the doctor – Relief for insect bites, rashes, skin allergies and irritations. And we have been using it for about 3 weeks too.
This is disturbing.
As of todate, our GP has never confirmed it eczema. What we were told it’s fungal infection that associated with inflammation. We were prescribed Zaricort and given a letter to see the skin specialist at end of this month. (We wanted to observe for one more month on this situation.)
P/S: We do make sure Yvette receive all the duty care in term of keeping her skin clean. I never let her sit on the public bowl without cleaning them. I always carry her to pee over the bowl when using the public toilet in the market, coffee shop and hawker centre. I always wash her bottom even we are in the public. And I’ve been bathing her using Burt’s Bee since she was a baby.
