    [Eczema worse]

    My sons had a red spot under his eye for about a week that I just contributed to a bump. (He's very good at getting those especially on his head!) It never bruised, but it did go away. Today when he got up from his nap, it was back. Now the skin in that area looks red and dry. He's has mild eczema on his upper arms (especially during the winter), but never had it on his face or look red and dry like this did. He just had little bumps on his arms that you could feel, but really not see. Has anyone else had this problem? He's on atenolol and it does say something about skin rashes as a possible side effect. I guess a call to the doctor on Monday is in order. It could be something all together different, but we'll let the doctor figure that out.

    I had quite a problem with Eczema around my nose and upper lip after having been on Atenolol for about 4 years. Perscription Lamasil worked for awhile, but it came back. My wife eventually forced me to use an Avon product called 'Banishing Cream' which is actually supposed to be for skin discolorations. It took about three weeks of repeated application but it finally disappeared and hasn't reappeared for almost 6 months now. Maybe it's some wierd thing that just worked for me b/c of my skin, but nothing the doctors perscribed worked (and Lamasil was about $10 per pill even with insurance).

    Make sure your son keeps from touching his face as much as possible. He may have spread the rash that way, too. And see the doctor.
