Any tips anyone? Has anyone's baby experienced this?

MY DS has eczema on his legs, and arms, and a little on tummy.

GP was reluctant to diagnose eczema. hHope someone can help?

Is there anything I can do apart from keep area lubricated? Not 'together' enough at the mo to start cutting things from my diet...

Hi hopefully it won't get much more severe.

We use a combo of creams, bath stuff (try Oilatum or Aveeno) and diet but our dd had truly awful excema so something had to be done.

Put him in cotton clothing wash it in non bio powder no fabric softener or some people use surcare.

Try to stop him scratching if he does use scratch mitts or sew mittens onto babygros.

POst on the allergies forum you'll get lots of help, advice and support there.
