Hi everyone. I am looking for some help.

I have a 22 month old boy. From birth he has been diagnosed with eczema. He is on his 4th doctor. All of his doctors have told me the standard: he has eczema, cover him in vaseline and keep him well lotioned. I have been doing that for almost 2 years now and he is so bad now. He has open wounds all over him and wont stop scratching. (His daycare wont even let him come back until he is better.) The medicated creams the doctors are giving me for the wounds are no longer working and vaseline does nothing to ease the itching.

On top of all that he has other problems. His nose has been running for months now. He was sick every other week this past winter. He has had runny stool ever since birth. He has had several ear infections.

I am thinking a milk allergy at this point. I am just so fustrated at this point. I need some advice of where to go next. My baby is in so much pain.
