Hello, my name is***** I am reviewing your question and I will be with your momentarily! :)
My son suffered with terrible eczema at that age and I have tried multiple remedies, there are several things I would like to recommend for your granddaughter :)
Dove Sensitive skin soap for her path, pat her dry and immediately apply Cortizone-10 cream (very little on her face if she has some on her face)
Then apply Eucerine cream all over. I would apply it a second time after it soaks in on really bad places. Would use both creams twice a day.
For her clothes I would recommend using a detergent which is free of dyes and perfumes such as All Free & Clear
If the itching is really bad you can also give her Zyrtec liquid over the counter, that will help with the itching and help her rest if she is miserable. Sometimes cool compresses (wet a wash cloth and put in the fridge) and then apply to really bad areas. It is so hard watching them suffer and I hope that this has helped. If you are satisfied with my answer please give me a 5 star rating, and if not I am happy to help you further! Thank you so very much and have a great day and hope she feels better soon.
