I have two children with eczema.... all of the things i tried before with my older daughter to provide her with relief from the irriation on her skin is not working for my newest addition. Her cheeks are red and weeping. She has been scratching till her skin has cuts all over. I cut her nails extreemly short but it is still not enough. she cut her skin today so deep that it managed to look like it needed stitches. It looks red but controlled but she is clearly frustrated with her skin... I dont know what to do to relieve the itch... please help.

BTW i would rather staying natural but if i cant i dont mind. Its winter here and my house is very dry as well.

I have but they just keep giving her stronger prescriptions that are not helping with how itchy it is. Its only helping with the appearance.

Having a dry house doesn't help at all. You need moisture on their skin, not to dry it out further.

Have you seen a doctor to get some advice?
