My 3year old daughter has eczema now for the past two years. It has been an uphill battle of sleepless nights, extreme itching and lots of tears. We have been through so many creams including cortizone without any results. We have recently moved and it has now become even worse. Her skin is so dry it is scaly and flaky so much so that she scratches till she bleeds. As a mother my heart breaks when she has her nightly baths and screams and cries during and after because her skin burns so much. I have tried everything from Cetaphil, Epizone A, Epimax Junior and of course Advantan Fatty ointment to which she responds well but I can clearly see the effects of the cortizone on her thinning skin. I have heard that essential oils are really good especially Jojobo, Coconut and shea butter. Has any of you moms had any result or know of any creams available in South Africa I can try especially for the severe itchyosis?
