Battling Steroid Induced Eczema

My daughter Zainab had mild eczema as a baby. We used topical steroid creams, primarily fucicort sparingly for the first year and a half of her life. We stopped using topical steroids  6th July 2013. She was 3 years and 1 month old. I had used topical steroid creams 7 days monthly for almost 1.5 years at that point. For the last 3 weeks twice a day until the day we stopped. You can see my daughter’s journey through topical steroid withdrawal from the pictures. The first picture is my daughter sometime near the end of 2012. The last picture is of my daughter on thursday December 12th 2013. We’ve come a long way. Some might think she’s just growing out of her eczema, or maybe I’m doing something different. I had real eczema. My two other kids did too. This nightmare is totally different.
