Eczema Strikes Belle

Belle has always suffered from eczema, right along with Rapunzel.  The difference is, Belle's was never severe, and always easily controlled.  Not sure what's going on here, but now Belle's eczema is really flared up.  Luckily, it just seems to be on her arms right now.  Her legs and trunk are dry, but not flared yet.  I actually took her to the pediatrician today to make sure it was indeed eczema, and not something else, just to be sure.  She agreed that it appeared to be eczema, and that it didn't seem to be infected at this point.  So, now we move to more rigorous skincare for Belle.  She's not too excited about twice daily tub soaks, switching to cotton clothing, and adding in bleach baths.  But I explained to her, that these are the things we need to do to help her skin get better.  She's really uncomfortable from it.  Her skin is really itchy and burning.  So hopefully kicking her skincare into high gear will be enough to help her!
