Eczema...coconut oil not working

Posted by on Mar. 18, 2013 at 2:01 PM

Is there anything that works better for eczema than coconut oil? DD's feet are horribly dry and scaly. Coconut oil has worked wonderfully on the rest of her body, but for some reason the tops of her feet just won't get better. Any suggestions?

I've read coconut oil needs to be taken internally and externally to help eczema.

I've seen huge improvement for myself with a dairy-free diet.

I've heard that Breast Milk is used on some skin ailments.  Maybe it would work on Eczema?

I am not sure how old your lo is but I had to cut out gluten to really see a difference. I cut it our form my dd diet since she was older. Im not sure if it would help if you are nursing.
