Hi, I would also like to know of any natural remedies anyone has? DD has very, very bad eczema and none of the creams are helping so far. Would really like to try something new before any sort of infection gets a hold.

Sorry. This has probably been asked before but I was wondering of good tips for childhood eczema. I´ve tried a few creams but they seem to irritate my DD´s skin even more. I´m also afraid of cortisone based products in case they thin the skin too much. I presume that some products work better for some people than others. Any natural remedies that can be recommended please? Thank you.

Many of the treatments for eczema are quick fix but don´t get at the root of the problem at all. An allergy test is always a good starting point. Then, using a cream or whatever, when you are also working on what might be triggering the eczema, could be a two-pronged approach.

I tried all the creams too, to little avail. What I found worked best of all was Eskimo Oil. It´s available in most chemist and it is taken on a spoon (like cough mixture). It oils the skin from the inside out. It´s not cheap but it is wonderful. Hope that helps.

Hi,
My child too has bad eczema so i know what you are going through. I would recommend that if your child has really bad eczema you should get referred to crumlin hospital for professional advise and support. we are under Prof. Irwine care. please do not be scared of steroid creams, with proper use they really are fantastic. recommended (1) i have heard (not from crumlin)to increase the omega 3s, i have heard stories of people doing this and eczema disappearing...flax oil has very high levels! Need to make sure your child can tolerate flax
(2) bathing, every day if possible, skin is cleansed, therefore reducing bacteria, lessening chance of infection and mosturisers are absorbed better. Aveeno oatmeal sachets added to each bath, not too hot and short baths -10 min
(3) moisturise morning and night.
(4) cotton clothing next to skin.
(5) do not allow child to overheat and put a wet sponge on top of radiators to keep moisture in air
(6) get tested for possible allergens and avoid them
(7) reduce stress for the child
(8) non bio detergents only, try SureCare detergent in tescos, use liquids not powder and do not use fabric softener.
sorry i could write a book............but finally get professional advise so your childs skin is in good condition and therefore a happy child. it can be managed with help

One of Remedies that helped our Daughter Eczema was using Natural Soaps. It looks surprising though. Market is flooded with Commercial Soaps
which has detergents in them. Natural element Glycerin is removed from the soaps. That makes skin dry. Natural Soaps on the other hand contains
the natural Oils.

I´m thinking you might try to help your child from inside, if cream is not working.
one of the ingredients of herbal drink Alveo is red clover, which seems to be helpful for all skin conditions including eczema, allergies, and other skin conditions

Red clover is rich in isoflavones, including genistein and biochanin A (an antioxidant which protects against cells aging). Used as an antibiotic, it has been used in fighting bacterial infections and dealing with kidney and liver diseases. Over the years it has been tried with some success as a tumor and cancer remedy (for breast and prostate cancer in particular). Red clover has also been used as a treatment for skin disorders, such as eczema and psoriasis, as it claims to cleanse the blood.

Hi my son suffered from eczema for years and tried everything until a new friend recommended a product call Forever Living Aloe Vera it is 98% natural, now i was desperate to try anything cos every morning his back would be red and so itchy and his poor legs, no matter what i put on him the relief was short term, anyway we got this gel for him to drink so it would start healing from the inside and every day use an Aloe soap in his bath and every morning and evening use a Aloe cream or gelly and within a matter of a few weeks his skin was healed.The Aloe has a natural antiflammatory so i felt good not pumping his little body full of chemicals,it is worth trying and please contact me and i can give you more information on the product and where to get it.,
