  • i didnt know there were different types...when my son was a baby though he had eczema really bad...they just gave me 2 different types of cream and told me to only wash his clothes in fragrence free detergent and to only use dove fragrence free when giving him a bath. He would always break out with soaps or lotions and i could'nt wear perfumes or lotions or even foundation on my face because his skin was so sensitive. He would also very allergic to feathers. I'm glad he has grown out of it.

  • Bleach baths may help kids with eczema
    Soaking in a bath with diluted bleach may help treat children with eczema, a study shows.

  • Don't freak out, neurodermatitis is not a specific kind of eczema at all, rather it is the generic term for eczema when the docs don't know what kind of dermatitis, or eczema, you have.

  • Bleach? Are you kidding??

    Anyway, eliminate dairy; keep baths short, tepid and infrequent; keep the afflicted areas well moisturized with coconut oil; make sure that your child is well hydrated.

  • Soak in Dead Sea Salts. Follow with Shea butter. Avoid products with mineral oil. Get a Food Panel Rast test for IgE & IgG to detect any food sensitivities that could be causing it.
