my son LJ has had eczema since he was two weeks old, he is now six months, and it has a been an on and off situation. his specialist has prescribed elidel and hydrocortisone. these are the directions: moisturize baby's skin with a sensitive lotion such as aveeno or cetaphil(i prefer cetaphil), after, apply elidel to the facial area and hydrocortisone to parts of his body that are affected. when my son's face becomes very irritated and raw, i am instructed to use bacitracin ointment and elidel, and it really seems to work. good luck!!!
