Little I has started to develop patchy ezcema recently. We aren't surprised as the same thing happened to her Big Sister at around this age. It seems to flare up in her creases - so the back of her neck, backs of her knees and at her elbow joint. It isn't severe but bad enough for us to want to do something to stop any irritation she is experiencing.
You can see in the picture below the patch of eczema on Little I's neck. It is being aggravated where the collar on her clothes rub. I have been focusing on rubbing in the lotion after her bath to help protect the area when she sweats in the night. The lotion is quite thin making it easy to apply without getting cream on her clothes.
