  • My kids have ezcema too. Check for food allergies as well. Keep her well lubed up, we had prescription creme, no not hydrocortison, that is too strong for young skin. Wejust reallly kept them lubed. I love eucerin calming creme. AS they got older it calmed down a bit. It is also heriditary.

  • my 2 yo dd has eczema, i think it may be something that contacts her skin, we have experimented with food elimination with no luck. i am due to have a baby soon, and i am going to try breast milk on the bad skin.

  • cut out milk completely. its not needed. you can get calcium from other sources.

    i have eczema on my hands and my FIL is a dr he told me to use 1 part tea tree oil and 1 part vicks baby vapor rub on my hands and smother it in them and just wear gloves (so it wouldnt get all over the place since i always use my hands) and it works very well. and doesnt ahve the steroids and crap in them that my dr gave me.

  • Eliminating (cow) dairy will help; I have never heard of goat milk helping eczema (please let me know what you find in your research).
    Keep baths short, cool and infrequent.
    Put coconut oil on the afflicted areas.
