My little brother is 28 months old and he was born with severe eczema. Well my dad and i are starting to think it's just not that anymore. His skin is way worse and we have tried EVERYTHING the dr's have prescribed. From $300 creams to strawberry surprise. He is highly allergic to many things and he is now on an all organic diet. There are day where it looks like he is getting better then it just gets worse.
He has patches of rash all over his body and little red bumps all on his stomach and his back. His hands and feet are the most torn up. He scratches till he bleeds and it just hurts me because he is screaming "hurt!"over and over. The time where it is at it's worse is at night. He just starts itching his head and and his head is burning. It is like he has a fever every night. We were thinking it was night sweats but he doesn't sweat. We have also noticed that it gets worse with heat. Is it really just severe eczema or is it something more. Personally i do not want him taking any more meds. He is too young and i don't want my brother dying of liver failure.
