Yesterday I went to the dermatologist to get my skin checked out. They ruled out a fungus and a few other things, like RINGWORM! It is eczema for sure. They gave me a prescription for a low dose steroid cream. Mommy gets to put it on the bad spots and then cover me up with a thick layer of Aveno Soothing Relief Cream. They also gave me a script for an antihistamine that I am supposed to take twice a day. I keep scratching at my diaper area and/or rubbing my legs and feet together to the point where the skin is starting to turn raw. They said the antihistamine will help with the itching. Since I haven’t been sleeping well at all, they should help with that too! If I don’t itch so bad then I can sleep better.
Mommy started the new ritual last night. I took my meds at 6:45 and by 7:30 I was asleep. I slept for 7.5 HOURS! The longest I have slept in weeks!!! Mommy was happy. I feel so much more rested today. My skin is looking better already!
Hopefully we can get this bad flare up fixed and then control it quickly if it flares again!
