Eczema

It’s getting worse. Dry enough around his cheeks that he scratches/rubs it, and also appearing on his tummy. It’s horrible to see a thing we don’t understand affecting him like this – we can’t help and we can’t explain.
It is very different to the eczema i’ve seen before, though – it doesn’t sit within ‘creases’. It seems to be places that get moist, from rubbing his mouth-sucked hands across his face or dribbling down to his neck.
We’re going to change laundry liquid, see what that does. It’s odd, i’m always on the Piriton, but Claire’s itchy too since giving birth – I can’t help but wonder if there’s something in the house?
