Hi there - DS is 5mths old and has had eczema only for a few weeks but it's spreading at an alarming pace. Being treated by his paediatrician who's v good but not an eczema expert. I know we could be in for a long ride but would like to get the best advice possible early on - does anyone have a dermatologist / allergy expert / paediatrician in London who they can recommend as being particularly specialist in eczema? Thanks!

I am not an excema specialist on here [allergies my thing ....] but I know that there are very good people at St Thomas

maybe someone else will come along with better advice!

Ditto with St Thomas and allergies. Specifically for eczema I recommend Dr David Atherton - DD also had very severe eczema from about 5 months and he completely transformed our lives. He used to be the paediatric dermatologist at Great Ormond Street but is now semi retired and only practices privately.

Dr Helen Cox at Marys Paddington is great and is well known at leading research into eczema and allergies. She is the author of the NICE guidelines on eczema too so I guess she's pretty much considered the top in the uk when it comes to eczema. And she's lovely!

I would certainly second Helen Cox being lovely!
