My son is 22 months and he has severe excema. Its awful and breaks my heart, he scratches so much he bleeds...the doctor gives him steriod creams and anti-itch oral med along with claritan. The only thing that helps is a oral steriod but he cant take that all the time. Also now his fingernails have stopped growing...he still has the top half of his nail but from the cuticle to half way up his nail area theres no nail...the doctor says its because hes been sick & they'll grow back. I hope hes right and if anyone has any advice for excema..its appreciated

Damn hand, foot and mouth disease! My kids have had it twice and they are 3 and almost 2. I just noticed my oldest's pointer fingernail is almost off with a new nail over the top, the other pointer nail is coming off halfway across, and several of his other nails will start peeling off if I even try to scratch at them gently. Thanks for this blog!
