Precious Samuel was FINALLY given relief for his intense itching. His severe eczema has caused the poor little guy to itch and scratch pretty much nonstop since we brought him home. Even though we had seen 3 different pediatricians and gone to the dermatologist twice, they offered no hope except he'd eventually grow out of it. We switched his formula several times, removed him from formula for a bit, greased him down several times a day and yet, he'd scratch so much we had to wear a hat on his head while he was sleeping or he'd cut his head open. :(
Well, a couple of weeks ago we saw another pediatrician (it's a group of drs.) and she immediately realized the insanity it was causing him and I! She wrote a prescription and referred him to a specialist. And just like that his world changed. His skin is soft and lovely. He still itches a tiny bit but not like he did. He is finally sleeping longer than 2 hours at a pop. Woo Hoo!!!! He doesn't have to wear gloves or a hat on his head all the time. Best of all, he is happy and enjoying catching up on the life he missed out on for far too long. When I bathed him before, he'd sit and scratch instead of play in the water. Now he splashes and plays the whole time!
We call the prescribed medicine "miracle cream". LOL! God is so good to answer our prayers for our boy and to do it in such an AMAZING way! We knew the cream would help a little bit but it has exceeded our expectations. We are lovin' getting to know the non-itchy, happy all the time, babbling, playing, precious doll of a boy named Samuel Tobias!!! Thank you God!!!
