Aqueous Cream For Eczema

Baby C’s face is now cleared of eczema. Although it is not 100% flawless yet, it is nevertheless improving and her complexion is glowing now. I did not really alter my diet (Baby C is still breastfed exclusively)  and have been drinking milk 2-3 times a day, I still eat an egg a day, I still eat peanut butter and nuts almost everyday, beef and occasionally eat prawns. What I find helpful to keep the eczema at bay is to keep her face clean and moisturized. Heat is also the number one culprit, so keeping her cool all the time is important too.  

Baby C sleeps downstairs during the day, where there is no air cond.  Whenever she is sweaty, I will wipe her face and body.  I wipe her face at least 4-5 times a day with filtered water. Whilst her face is still slightly damp, I apply Aqueous cream (or Aqua cream) generously all over her face, paying attention to the eczema prone areas. 

This tub of Aqueous cream only costs RM15 (made in Malaysia!). I apply it generously all over my body too everyday!

 

Baby C’s face is now glowing, is not blotchy and does not feel rough anymore.

Baby C is half awake here.  She has double eyelids on both her eyes. However, the wierd thing is that when her eyes are fully opened, the double eyelids will vanish!  I hope the double eyelids will be a permanent feature soon, whether she’s half awake or fully awake! (like Vien’s Cassie whose double eyelids only appeared at 3 months old). 

I really can’t tahan how cute she looks when she sleeps and kept snapping her pix away yesterday!

Cassie’s Pediatrician

The doctor who is treating Baby C’s UTI is a super busy pediatrician. He operates his own clinic and also practices at two private hospitals. When I brought Baby C to the hospital to see him for a follow-up check one evening last week, we had to wait for more than an hour for him to arrive. He was rushing from one clinic to the other and his dinner was only a Gardenia bun that he grabbed from the sundry shop outside his clinic. I have to say that he seems to be a very knowledgeable pediatrician but he always pisses me off when he tells me that I ask him too many questions.

The next time he chides me off for asking him too many questions, I will tell him that I am entitled to ask him questions and I am paying him for it. I will ask him to put himself in my shoes and see how he feels. I will also ask him to get free medical applications for iphone from Epocrates instead of referring to the dog-eared notebook that he puts inside his shirt pocket. That notebook makes him look like a student whenever he refers to it for his medical notes and dosages.  Referring to his iPhone for medical applications will definitely make him look more professional.

This announcement was paid for by Epocrates.
