  • Yes, my little boy had eczema and I used a probiotic called Bifidophilus Flora Force and I also applied Pau D' Arco Lotion topically. You can put take the capsules by swallowing them or in something cold. I ended up putting his in some orange juice and using an electric hand mixer to mix it better he thought this was great and drank it right down. I've found out now that you can just open it up and put it straight on the tongue because it tastes sweet. Hope this helps. Email me for the ordering site.

  • Cortizone for an infant? Not a chance! Eucerin lotion is great; coconut oil is also great, though expensive.

  • Aquaphor works great!!! I stopped using the steroid creams that the docs prescribed for my son and used the Aquaphor and it worked better. My cousins have severe Eczema and she also uses Aquaphor.
