Four Month Doctor Visit

Well, not good news at the doctor visit today. :( He is still not gaining weight like he should be. He was 12lbs 13oz today. His skin is very dry, definitely eczema, so we now have to get a prescription lotion for him. He is behind in development; the doctor was concerned because he doesn't try to roll over or grab at his toys. We have to take him sometime this month and get a sweat test done to rule out cystic fibrosis. We will also be adding a daily vitamin to see if that might help with some of his problems. Please keep us in your prayers as we continue to struggle with our cute little guy.

My youngest has eczema. I've found the tub of original Eucerin, (mixed with 1% hydrocortisone for flareups) works well. (I buy it at Wal-mart) I apply it after giving him a bath. Make sure you put long sleeves on him afterwards because it is oily. However, it works great for moisturizing.

I've also used Aveeno at bath time during flare-ups. Lastly, the dermatologist recommended fragrance free detergent.

Your son will be in my prayers. Hugs!
