  • Hi Amy,

    I read your health question and felt I needed to reply as a concerned parent. I've spoken with other moms in similar situations, both psoriasis and eczema were treated by using an Antibacterial Liquid Soap and soaking in Renew Bath Oil for 30 minutes each night. Pat dry, not rub; Applying Renew Intensive skin therapy lotion to the scaly areas And also applying MelaGel (an antiseptic) to cover the areas that were inflamed or red. As you also mentioned a proper diet is very important and I wish you and your daughter all the best. If you'd like to discuss further and find out more details about these products that I also use and haven proven to be safer and better for your family's health, I'd be delighted to share more information with you. Please feel free to send me an email anytime at
