The coconut oil is amazing! Palm oil too. You can get either at a Whole Foods store.
But they will only lubricate the dry skin, not resolve the issue of what is going on inside with his immune system to cause such a severe eczema flare up.
Can you share his treatment and age?

I have heard that unrefined organic coconut oil can really help.

Can you list what has been advised? If a good steroid cream and a nice thick moisturizer are not clearing things up he may need an oral course of steroids.
How old is he and when did it start? Also have you seen a pediatric dermatologist? Or an allergist?
