One of my boys had a rash on his face, stomach, and arms in half a year. The doctor quickly diagnosed - atopic dermatitis, from the father all allergic. It was prescribed to bathe every day, to use bathing water without chlorine, emollients, strict diet. In case of aggravation, ointment was prescribed.
At first, they were smeared with ointment, but the effect is temporary, and it cannot be used for a long time. I decided not to risk it, went to another allergist doctor. She said try these droplets. On the first day, a little, one or two. Then, if there are no side effects - 5 drops per day until the rash passes. So they did it, after a few days there was a noticeable effect, the rash goes away. They drank drops for 30 days, so the doctor prescribed. After that, there was no relapse for a very long time and now we keep Zyrtec in the first-aid kit always.
Well, of course there was a hypoallergenic diet, then very gradually they tried one product, then another, until they identified the allergen. Plus, we were prescribed Bifidumbacterin probiotics to eliminate intestinal problems.
For almost two years, there are no problems, the rash has not returned, all is well.
Even the drug has a very regular bottle, the child will not be able to open it, and it is convenient to measure drops. Maria, St. Petersburg
