anti itch cream question?

I have a 6 month old that has been taking benadryl for itching she has eczema. She takes it 3 times a day but I makes her really sleepy when its not time to sleep so I was wondering if anyone knew if there is an anti itch over the counter medicine that is safe for a 6 month old? Or do I need to ask my doctor first?

Six months? I'd ask your doctor.

My boys have eczema too. Before they were a year old our ped told us to use hydrocortisone 1%. I know ds1 started using it around 1 months. It never caused a problem.

Use hydrocortisone 1% stop giving Benadryl. And look into an allergist. Most eczema is caused by an allergy not just dry skin.
