hello madam welcome to HCM, i understand your anxiety in treating and controlling severe eczema of your child. atopic dermatitis is what your child is suffering from, which makes them too sensitive to dust , cows milk, yellow of eggs, brinjals, turmeric powder, stress and also anxiety. It males them altogether a different personality and hence the name Atopy.
Do make a list of things your child is sensitive, do avoid sprays and scents near his body, make sure that pollen is not around too much in your garden. these are primarily preventive.
The treatment is based on application of mild steroid lotions and moisturizer,
Atopy remains with him only the intensity will reduce by the fifth year.
The treatment of atopy is long and one has to be patient.
Make your house neat if possible use vacuum cleaner.
Thank you

Homeopath Dr. Neha Vijayakar's  Response

Basically what is happening is that your son's immune system is working overtime to remove a possible threat. That is called an allergy or atopy. Steroids will just suppress his immune system and the anti-allergics will control the histamine reactions. But both are temporary phenomena. If steroids are continued, his allergy will internalize and he may start suffering from bronchial asthma or he may develop food allergies too.

Homoeopathy offers the best and permanent treatment for any kind of allergy. Your son is just 2 years old and at his age, his immunity is acting at its most optimum. Homeopathy will definitely help in curing his condition completely.

All the best!
