Help with Eczema. UPDATE pic.

 My daughter has really bad eczema. We have brought her to dermatologist and tried everything, but when she gets flare ups nothing works. Now the bottom of her feet are peeling and its to the point that it hurts her to walk.

I was wondering if anyone knew of any home remedy I could use on her?

Thank you ladies :)

UPDATE:

Thank you so much ladies for all the great advice.. i have been keeping her feet moisterized, have checked what she eats and told her to stop peeling them, today the dead skin came off all on its own and the new skin looks much better, she said it does not hurt anymore.  I will keep in mind each and every one of your information. Here's pic of what her feet look like now... before was really really bad.

Thanks once again, I love this group!! :)

My friend uses Extra Virgin Olive Oil on her and her son's eczema, she says it helps and doesn't burn like most creams do.

so sorry. have you tried oatmeal baths?

That's the only thing I can think of. I hope you find something that helps her.

My DH has it. My best friend's little girl has it too. I used to work as a nurse for a dermatologist as well. The doctor I worked for recommended Dove unscented soap at bath time, Cerave cream lotion on affected areas, & humidifiers for her patients. My DH & friend say these things all work as well. However, each patient is different, so talk to her dermatologist before starting any new treatments/home remedies.

 Thanks, I had been "dipping" lol.. her in vitamine E oil, and it helped for a while, but her feet are most of the day in enclosed shoes and I think the sweat did it for her.  I have been trying to keep her feet out of socks and shoes for now.

I will try this, thanks

I use aveeno products and coconut oil. I also watch what she eats to prevent a flare ups. Do you know what causes her flare ups?

We use Burt's Bees Baby Bee unscented body wash on our son and it doesn't come back unless we use something different. His isn't terrible, but it does help keep the flare-ups down. Good luck, mama!
