Sorry, as this section indicates, this is just a random rambling. Just didn't feel like suffering alone so I decided to write about it. My 7 y/o (as I have mentioned on here before) has severe asthma. Well, to go along with that, he also has severe eczema. We have spet his whole life battling it and honestly, right now he is better than he ever has been. However, Winter is hard. I try to keep the humidity up in the house but even at that, his skin gets so dry and broken. He just came to me and showed me his legs. The back of both knees was bleeding from him scratching. Been a long time since they were that bad. I put Aveeno on him which is one of the few things that really does help. It hurt so bad it made him cry......so I did too. So, I just held him 'til he thought he could go back to bed. We have tried everything. At one point there was a new cream out....can't remember the name but a TINY tube was $170 (so happy for great insurance) and it did NOTHING. The docs think it will continue to improve as he grows up.....I think they are right because I see the difference in now and a few years ago. I just don't want to wait anymore. My baby hurts and that kills me. For anyone who actually read this, thanks for listening. Already off the phone with hubby for the night and no one I know is awake.
