Toddler's Eczema Turns Into 'Oozing, Scabbed' Skin on 'Every Inch' of Body Due to Steroid Cream

“His whole body was swollen, his feet looked like balloons."  When Kristi Chun’s 1-1/2-month-old son, Colby, showed signs of eczema on his ear, she picked up a bottle of over-the-counter anti-itch lotion, not realizing she was starting her family on a years-long journey of doctors’ visits and sleepless nights. The Cetaphil was effective practically overnight, the mom of one recalls to PEOPLE, but when it returned the next time on his mouth, as well, she and her husband took Colby to a doctor. Within a week of the first signs of eczema, the Chuns’ pediatrician prescribed them a steroid cream.
