Sleepless nights with 9-month old eczema babyHi,
My 9-month old son is having severe eczema since birth. We are using homeopathic medicine with lots of hopes.
My main concern is, my baby wakes up every 1-2 hours and screams like anything for 1-2 hrs and then goes back to sleep with lots of effort. His homeopathic docter is providing medicine, but not helpful for his sleepless nights. Can anyone suggest me a good remedy for his sleepless nights.

Thanks for responding!
I give him bath for 10mins before bedtime and apply lots of moisturizer. Then I give him graphites 6 (as prescribed by his docter). I even tried chamomilla 200 one night, but even that did not work. I tried with benadryl also, it helps for only 2-3 hrs. In the mornings he is ok, manageable, but in the nights it is really horrible.
we dont have any homeopathic docter near our place. I am contacting his docter thru phone who is in India.

I am sorry for your crazy nights. I know that is hard. It sounds like something he is doing every day, whether it is breast millk or what he is eating is causing this, as it is the same pattern every night. Eczema is often a sign of an underlying allergy/immune response. What is he eating/drinking? If he is breast milk only, what are you eating? Has this been the same for 9 months? When is crying worse? At night, lying down? What are daytime patterns?
