Eczema

.... is a disease in a form of dermatitis,[2] or inflammation of the epidermis.[3] The term eczema is broadly applied to a range of persistent skin conditions. These include dryness and recurring skin rashes that are characterized by one or more of these symptoms: redness, skin edema (swelling), itching and dryness, crusting, flaking, blistering, cracking, oozing, or bleeding (as defined by Wikipedia).

I just like to call it annoying. Go away eczema! Hayes isn't bothered by you, but I am. As always, he is such a good sport!

I had it as a child, it's not nice, but it's something that you grow out of.

Carrie, have you tried Aquaphor? It's like vaseline but not as greasy. My dermatoligist recommends it for everything, including my eczema...which is spotty and only comes in the winter. It does help some. And it's great on diaper rash and any redness or chapped skin that Ainsley gets.
