Natural remedy for eczema/allergies

I went to the pediatrician this morning because my baby is fussy. Well, he is teething (which I already knew).  I got amber beads for that and hyland's. But, she said he has eczema and that may be contributing to the fussiness. She told me to get children's benadryl. I don't want to give that crap to him!! Is there anything natural that I can give him? I planon keeping the humidifier going and slathering him up with coconut oil, but I didn't know if anything knew of anything I hadn't thought about yet. Thanks!

He is 10 weeks old

if you're nursing, try cutting out dairy. it's known to cause allergies quite frequently.  Also, keeping him slathered in CO is a great idea.

have you tried raw shea butter? i'd also start eliminating dairy and soy and see if that helps out any.

I just put lotion on my daughter a couple times a day and it helps a lot.

No dairy and have him wear hazelwood

Hazelwood necklace is probably better than the amber.

It might take experimentation with your diet - gluten, dairy, soy, corn, and sugar are common culprits.
