4. CALENDULA - http://www.mothernature.com -This flowering plant (Calendula officinalis) has been used for centuries for ailments ranging from scorpion bites to cancer. It was once even a common staple in foods. The most recent application, however, usually involves skin ailments and irritations including atopic eczema. Laboratory tests support calendula's healing benefits. The anti-inflammatory also claims antiviral properties. Calendula is available as a cream and salve and has no known side effects.

Talk to the doctor about it. It can be from food allergies. My 18 mo grandson has eczema and is allergic to peanuts, eggs, wheat, beef, chicken, and ham. Not milk. He is breastfed and his mother eats little milk so that is why he may not have the milk allergies. His mother loves meat, peanut butter, and bread. She was feeding him a lot of eggs to try to get him to gain weight. I didn't know they were doing this until after the allergy tests.
