Re: Help for a parent of a small child with eczema

I am in my 30s and have had eczema my entire life. My eczema is linked to both allergy triggers and diet. I grew up with standard medical treatments: corticosteroid creams, "medicated" lubriderm, and benadryl. All of it junk. As an adult, I have explored many natural therapies and for what it's worth they seem to give far superior results with less nasty side effects:

1. Sea Salt - I use "Dr.G's Sea Salt " developed by a dermatologist in Louisiana whose daughter suffered terribly from eczema. It is a proprietary blend of Sea Salt s. Yep, it burns horribly on weeping skin, but I find I prefer that to itching. Needs to be applied in bath/shower daily. It is by far one of the most effective things you can do for this skin. Period.

2. MOISTURIZER - some people here love jojoba oil. I have found OTC lotion "Cerave" is great on the go. Overnight I use a heavier balm such as Suki's butter cream salve.

3. PROBIOTICS - Dr. Ohirra's Essentials is strongly recommended. I was a sickly kid on Antibiotics frequently, I wish my mom would have known to secretly sprinkle probiotics in my food!

4. DHA/EPA/GLA - DHA & EPA have been recommended by many doctors to me. I can't tell if it improves my eczema condition, but it doesn't seem to harm it so why not? GLA - recommended by Dr. Andrew Weil and other naturpoaths for eczema...I just started taking Borage Liquid Gold oil by "Health from the Sun." It might be worth trying.
