I would love to get some Plender's Ointment. Does anyone know a store that carries it? I would get it shipped to me so it could come from anywhere. Thanks!

My son has had really bad eczema since his second week of birth. The doctor gave me a prescription but I wanted to use something natural so I started using organic shea butter and his eczema got 99% better! The odd patch on his face still pops up from time to time so I still use it on his face every morning and every night but before when it was really bad I was lotioning his face and body every couple of hours. If you can't find that I would try organic coconut oil, its a bit thicker and greasier but its natural and smells great but be sure to do a patch test first to make sure your little one is not allergic. Also everytime I bathe my little guy I add oatmeal to the water, I take 1 minute oatmeal and grind it in a blender to a fine dust and add it to the water like that and I make sure to lotion his skin right away after taking him out because it locks the moisture in his skin more at this time than any other. The diaper cream I use is Live Clean (baby) soothing relief Diaper Ointment. It's 100% plant derived, paraben free and phthalate free. I have used it for him since he was born and he has not had a rash yet. If you Google it it's the first to pop up and you can order from their website. Hope this helps! :)
