  • I just started using Aquaphor and it's working wonders for my dd, it's a little pricey but it's well worth the money.

  • Climb On. Trust me. It's all natural, no synthetics, chemicals, or alcohol.
    The cream is easier than the ar to apply to a larger area, like those affected by eczema.

  • My son had it bad at that age. Expecially behind his knees and elbows. I would bath him in the aveeno oatmeal bath. (bathing him every 2-3 days only, as per his dr. ) Then I would slather on the euceren cream. It is over the counter and a little pricey but it really worked.

  • My son's dr said to give him a bath in baking soda and works really good.

  • we used the eucerin cream. It;s not natural but there aren't any steriods in it, either. If you dont want any medicated cream, try these things first.

    Make sure the water isnt too "hard" minerals in the water can promote skin drying which promotes exzema breakouts. Make sure the house isn't too dry. Run a humidifier to help moisturize the air in your house. Any dryness in the air sucks moisture out of the skin, promoting exzema breakouts. Keep the skin moist, with a non medicated cream. something natureal like for babies might be good enough. Keep in mind these things are for prevention - if the breakout is bad you will have to treat it with the medicated cream to get it under control.

    Good luck!
