Baby scratching at night

My one year old is very itchy at night. She gets up multiple times and starts scratching herself on the face and arms. We have to keep patting her for a long time to put her back to sleep.

She also has eczema. Any solutions to the itching problem?

If she is already diagnosed to have eczema,  then that is probably the reason for the itching. Apply moisturising lotion liberally to body , and cream for face. You may also give anti allergy oral medication as advised by the dermatologist or paediatrician you have consulted. If above measures don't bring relief steroid application and wet wipes and compress can be considered.
