My lil one has just been diagnosed with Eczema...i have been consoled so far by the fact that it seemed fairly mild...just rashes...yesterday they became weepy..i feel so depressed.

Anyone with tips/home remedies/products they have used and have worked well? I have started a dairy free diet today as the Pediatrician suggested that could be a cause..

My eight year-old son developed eczema a while back - we bought a cream from the chemist called QV - this is a dermatological cream with no perfume, etc, that re-hydrates the skin - my son's eczema has cleared entirely now - might be worth asking your chemist about it.

Watch also the soaps you use at bath time.  Better off using specialised products that you get from the chemist, or no soap at all.

I agree with ricky about about what is used to bath a child. My son is eight and I used to bath him in bubble bath-type products. I stopped using these as many are full of products that are actually skin irritants or they dry out the skin - we ended up using a pure soap with sandalwood. I've also heard that goats-milk soap is good . Obviously, my son is older and one would have different issues and requirements with a baby - but it is good to be mindful of the types of chemicals that are commonly used in soap products.

Hello - my first son was diagnosed with eczema at a very young age also. Turned out to be a dairy intolerance. It cleared up as soon as i switched him onto soy (took me a while to figure that out though!).

I discovered a cream that helped his itching and redness as well (its my own personal miracle cream!). Its called eczema relief cream (how original) and i order it from bellenaturalskincare.com (i think thats the site - just google it if it doesn't work).

Good luck with it!

DD1 had bad eczema all over and we used Paw Paw ointment. Bathed her in QV bath stuff and then put the Paw Paw ointment all over her. It's great because unlike some products it doesn't sting when there is broken skin. I found when I consume diary, especially when I ate or drank cheap chocolate products.

my son has all the symptoms especially around nose, cheeks and forehead that flared up after he had dengue fever. I did not want to use any over the counter medicine so I researched. Now he washes his face with a diluted baking soda water daily followed with application of virgin coconut oil on the face after the wash.


Thanks,

Hi JJ's mum .
I suffer really bad with this problem...comes and goes. The cream i found to be helpful is .....Sudocrem ...you can buy this in safeway 
or Chemist . It helps with the weepy ,sore ,redness of the skin ,cracking ..i put in on at night time and in the morning helps 
the skin to calm down. Sometimes i wrap the skin to help it heal. I get it bad on my right hand. One day its there next day gone.
I found when i eat too many tomatoes it comes on more. My son also has the problem on his upper arm. I have used
this cream many times and with luck its worked. Also i have bought "home made natural soap " from a friend of mine 
who makes pure soap (make with natural oils ) and its works wonders. The brand Dr Bronners Pure Castile soap shower gel
works also to control the Eczema. you can buy it on line or at any good health store. Keep away from shower gels or soaps
found in the shops (supermarkets) they seem to make the problem worse i found. See how you go try these products if you like .

Kind Regards Skatergirl08
