Metrogel toddler

Recommended Posts

Hi there - new to the board... My 2 yr old daughter was diagnosed with POD and we just started Metrogel (no oral antibiotics for someone so young...). She originally was given a topical steroid by a different (not-so-knowledgeable) dermatologist ... She was on the steroid for about 2 months. Anyhow, the areas we are treating seem dryer after staring the Metrogel, but the bumps do already seem smaller/flatter. It is still red though. It is only day 4 and I know that the condition is supposed to get worse before getting better when you stop steriods (at least that is what I was told), but I never saw it get this dry before. Is this normal? Will it eventually improve? Should I use some moisturizer (Cetaphil or Vanicream or something) or just let it be? Any advice is appreciated. Many thanks!
