Omega 3 fatty acids! All lotions and creams do is treat a symptom and not the cause. I buy Carlsons Omega 3 Fish oil with lemon oil from www.vitacost.com and pay half of what I would pay at the store. My son started with eczema around 1 year old. His pediatrician said to put steroid cream on it. It would come back. A naturopathic doctor told me to try flax seen oil for the omega 3. It worked! I read a lot of scientific papers on omega 3 since I am in medical field and do research. We switched to fish oil. My son has not had eczema since. He behaves better at school and has better focus. He sleeps better too. His sinus allergies are 95% better. He use to be on zyrtec 365 days a year. Omega 3 is the way to go. I work in immunology and eczema is partly an immunologic response. Our brains are made of 60% omega 3 and every cell membrane in our body has omega 3 in it. If you don't have enough omega 3 things start to break down. I believe eczema is a result of part of that breakdown. I give 1 tablespoon a night.

You will never believe this, but a report came on the other day that said that 1/2 cup of bleach (DILUTED IN A FULL BATHTUB) will help reduce the spread of the eczema. My children all have it, and we are planning on trying it with baths over the weekend.

I believe eczema is a *symptom* of an irritant your body doesn't agree with... I used to have it very badly when I was small, and I was being bombarded with all sorts of irritants: milk, animal dander, environmental irritants. After getting my first scratch test when I was 8, we finally learned of all the things that were making me react. So, first step... go to an allergist. If you treat the core problem rather than the after-effects and symptoms, it may be much better in the long run.

I have been using all natural soap...not the stuff you buy at wal-mart that says it's natural, I purchase from someone who actually makes the soaps and lotions from her home using all natural ingredients. I started using the soap and lotions she gave me and have not had an outbreak since.

When my daughter had it pretty bad I used the Aveeno baby bath cream to bathe her with (the dark blue bottle for eczema and dry skin). every other day to every couple of days. pat dry and apply aveeno baby (same dark blue bottle) lotion within 3 minutes of bathing. Apply the lotion several times a day to keep moisturized. use emu oil as a spot treatment in the morning as well. cleared my daughter up in a week or so. Good luck!

I don't know how bad your child's is but my daughter had a really bad spot on her belly the only lotion that I found that worked was the really thick lotion that starts with a "C" until we found the trick..."Oil of Olay's Ultra Moisture with Shea Butter body wash" It is a tad pricey but last forever. It is white with a gold lid. We started using it when my daughter was a toddler and she is almost 6 and as long as we clean her with that she doesn't need any other lotions or anything. Works like magic!

I think i can help you. Did you know that things you use everyday to take care of your family could actually be causing a lot of their health problems as well. If you're interested i can put you in contact with an all natural chemical free company that can really help. You won't spend any extra money at all. My husband and my daughter both have eczema and we tried everything including loads of money at the dermatologist getting prescriptions that didn't work that great anyway. Once I found this company and changed over to all natural things started changing with my husband and daughter. They don't get the red bloches and itchy skin all the time they rarely get it at all. Life is easier for them and me! Let me know if your interested and i'll do all i can to help you. Believe me it's worth it. you can email me directly at tobfrayne@aol.com and we'll go from there. Good Luck, Norvie Frayne

All 3 of my children had eczema, the best was using dye and fragrence free soaps and lotions.Aveeno baby, lotion and bath products from Arbonne worked awesome.You can also get all natural products at Sprouts or any of those natural food stores that work really well.

Eczema is not a specific disease, it is defined as itchy dry skin, which can be caused by many things. That's why there can be no universal "cure", but if you find YOUR cause, you may be able to find YOUR cure. For my daughter all I had to do was switch her baby wash and lotion to Aveeno's perfume-free "Soothing Relief" creamy wash and moisture cream, now her skin is silky and perfect, but for many it's not so simple.

Many people don't realize that a low-fat diet can also cause eczema. All those antioxidants that you hear so much about? Your body can't absorb them without some fat in the meal. Both the fats and the vitamins are vital for healthy skin. Small children especially should never be put on low fat diets because their brains are growing. Fully half of a toddler's daily calories should come from fat. Just make sure they're getting good fats. The good fats (Omega 3s & 6s) are found in fish, especially salmon, Flax seed, Olive, and Canola oils, Walnuts, Almonds, Natural Peanut butter (the kind you have to stir) Avocados, eggs, and real mayo. Avoid anything that says "hydrogenated" on the label. You can use flax or fish oil supplements, but grilled Salmon with a nice salad dressed with an olive & flax oil based dressing is a lot more appealing than a spoonful of oil or giant capsuls.

If improving nutrition and switching soaps, lotions and laundry products doesn't work, then look into food or environmental allergies, but try improving diet first.

Using cremes, lotions and baths, even medicated ones, alone, only treats the symptoms, it doesn't address the underlying cause.

My son has eczema really bad and what i found was that Hydrocortisone cream worked wonders! I use Cortizone 10 Maximum strength as needed on all of his hot spots or just and within 24 hours his skin would clear up. His pediatrician recommended it and said that its safe enough to use at every diaper changing, but after the first couple days, once a day was enough. Other than that I just try to control his environment, eczema is directly effected by different allergents, so i make sure to not use no name detergents, Dreft is my safety there, and just making sure to keep him from playing outside after the grass is cut and such. Lots of lotion helps too, keeping the skin dry makes a big difference, i use soothing naturals from Aveeno, he loves it! Good luck!!

is your baby being fed formula..I was mostly breastfeeding but started giving my daughter a bottle or formula every night at five months. She began to break out and at first i thought it was ecxema but after trying different things decided it had to be the formula.. I switched to soy based formula and voila it went away!

oh yer dont forget they get the staph cause they scratch and the bugs go in the skin, so keep nails short and i also found a tube or pump type cream is better if its a container you are contaminating it every time you put hand inside even with gloves on.

My mum friend has found that bathing her little boy less often has really helped (1-3 times a week instead of every night). I guess the skin's natural oils have more chance to work. E45 cream, sudocrem & Eucerin are good, from personal experience.

I dont know if you have found something that works, yet, but I can point you to lots of testimonials and pictures of children being helped by mangosteen juice. I gave you my website, kristinelligan.gomangosteen.com, but if you want to send me an e-mail, or give me your e-mail, I can send these to you. kknelligan@verizon.net.

My son has it really bad. It covered his whole face at 2 months old. It was like cradle cap over his entire body. I took him to the doctor and he said cortizone cream. Well i didnt feel safe with steroids so I bought all kinds of stuff and the aveeno baby eczema dark blue writing worked... but he still had it. I caved in and bought the cortizone and it works. His skin is beautiful. I only use it when he has a bad break out all other times I use the aveeno. Talk to your doctor.

My son has severe eczema. My Dr. told me to let him sit in a warm (not hot) bath for 15-20 min up to 3 times daily depending on how severe it is. Then as soon as you get him out just barely pat dry and apply vaseline to seal in the moisture. Then on top of that use a lotion or ointment of your choice (we like aveeno or aquaphilic ointment). Then my Dr. prescribed a steroid cream that you then apply a light layer of over the vaseline and lotion, but just to the affected areas. It's A LOT of work, but it really helped my son. And since their body is so hydrated it really helped with the itching too.

I'm not sure it's a miracle cure but if you bathe in Selsun blue (light amount) use it as a soap, it works great. I was told by a doctor to try it and it worked withing a couple of weeks and you get relief from the itching.

My son has eczema on his face, stomach, elbows, wrists and knees. I slather him every diaper change with cediphil lotion and on his face use .5% hydrocortisone cream. The doctor prescribed a steroid to put on his body. Although, once I started putting lotion on him about 7 times a day it went away almost over night. Now I only use the creams for flare ups.

I don't have time to read all 500+ posts, but wanted to make sure someone metioned an eliminaton diet. Eczema is caused by many things, but food is often times the main culprit. Anything from dairy, soy, corn, chocolate, eggs, food coloring, fish, nuts, etc etc can cause this reaction. I would go to Dr Sears website for his elimination diet or check into the Feingold Diet. Eliminate all potential offenders and go from there. It can make a life-altering difference for your child.



Good luck!

My son had eczema really bad all over. The worst of it was on his feet and the back of his hands because he could scratch it until it bled, so he would have constant scabs and sores on them. We had tried lotion after lotion and prescription creams but it would always return. My gf put me onto Sunrider Quinery which has been an absolute miracle to us. Its a natural herbal product that rebalances their bodies so that it doesn't react in eczema. I also used a body lotion from Sunrider which eased his itching. I added it to his formula every day and it started clearing it up as soon as we started on it. You can add it to their food also, which ever way you do it, it works wonders. My son's skin has cleared up completely, there's no scarring from the scabs or sores. There's no sign he ever had a problem with eczema. He has never had any nappy rash since. Check out www.sunrider.com You can order it online or over the phone. I'll never use a prescription cream or any other lotion on his ever again. Hope that helps! :)

Yes, I have a cure. My son Austin suffers from Eczema, he is almost two now and I give him Aloe that he drinks (2 ounces) everyday. Then I also put an aloe lotion on his skin as well. You can find them both on the following website, www.marketamerica.com/jencarr. Let me know if you can't find them. jen.carr@yahoo.com. The drinkable aloe also helps with digestive problems.

How old is your baby? If your baby is drinking juice, try some Mona Vie, about 1/2 ounce mixed with juice.

I use Arbonne's ABC line for babies. My daughter has the softest most beautiful skin, it's specially formulated to help heal and condition skin. www.arbonne.com can give you some information, it's worth trying!

I"m not sure of any cures. . .however . .. are you feeding your little one bananas by chance. My baby had a big reaction to bananas. As soon as I stopped the banana, the rash (and what looked like a sunburn on her nether regions) cleared up. I was surprised because the canned banana didn't bother her, it was the fruit in it's natural form that was the culprit. I had to reduce her food back to rice cereal and re-introduce three foods I added in tandem. ..the banana was the bad guy. I'm sure when her immune system is stronger this wont be an issue but for now, no bananas. Thankfully she loves blueberries and cantaloup : ) Good luck. . .

My doctor offered me some steroid creams.

My friends told me their doctors told them to use Aquaphor, I bought it and it works miracles for her skin...so my baby is always covered head to toe in Aquaphor.

My daughter had it so bad, I wanted to cry FOR her that she was so miserable. They gave me the hydrocortisone, but it was only a temporary fix. I found MY miracle was Aveeno Baby Wash (Fragrance Free) and Aveeno Baby Lotion (Fragrance Free)...applied immediately after a daily bath... and changing from Dreft detergent to ALL Free and Clear Laundry Detergent for her clothes (NO Fabric Softener) She is now 98% clear of the eczema, and she was so bad she had it on every spot of her body except for her cheeks. Her arms, legs, belly, forehead, back, feet, hands, you name it she was just one big red patch. You just gotta keep trying, hopefully it will clear soon!
