NEEM SOAP and SHEA BUTTER.
You can get neem soap at health food store.  

Both neem oil and neem leaf are fantastic skin care ingredients:

  • Neem relieves dry skin.
  • It soothes itchines, redness and irritation.
  • It improves general skin health and immunity, combating bacterial infections, as in acne, boils and ulcers.

But neem doesn't promote resistance in bacteria. Antibiotics are over-prescribed and are becoming blunt as a weapon in our fight against diseases. Neem is an interesting alternative, and one that will never stop working.

One of the top neem benefits is that it lets you avoid harsh chemicals and nasty insecticides when treating conditions like

I've struggled with eczema as a child and I've had a few flare-ups as an adult.

Honey works like a charm! I had eczema on my hands, so I'd slather honey on 'em, tie some plastic bags around my hands and leave it on for at least an hour, it works!

I know this may sound weird but plain regular crisco really helps my eczema. It rarely flares & if it does it's just a little bit. After I get our of the shower I put some on.

avoid known triggers. keep area moist/clean. avoid scratching.
During a flare up, i use shae butter right after i get out the shower. Also, if you have hard water, avoid taking too many showers, the metals in the water could be triggering your flare ups

Agh, I'm losing my mind over dry skin patches. What has my life come to? LOL
 
 
I grew out of mine.  Have you tried pure shea butter?  Or is she allergic to latex?  If so, then a pure butter will work.  Some people have resorted to Crisco, which is hydrogenated palm oil if I am not mistaken.

I have not signed in for a while, but I had to for this.

My daughter for years have been dealing with  severe eczema.  Her skin was extremely dry, cracked, rough,scaly and discolored.  It had gotten to the point that she would wake up at night scratching until she bled and had sores around her angles and leg. I would go in her room and find scabs and blood on her sheets.  I took her to her predication and they just kept giving her steroid prescription, I hated I had to place Steroids on my young child.  One of the most heart breaking thing was hearing her scream and cry in pain if I applied most commercial lotions on her even the steroid cream ( I now only use organic or natural products like pure Shea butter, olive oil or Vaseline).  After years of going to different doctors and trying different creams. I took her to a dermatologist that told me the best thing and it works,  Water Treatments!

Water treatment for eczema

1. Soak child in tub 3 times a day for  5-10 minutes
2. If the eczema is on upper back and arms, put a long sleeve shirt on child while in tub and soak the shirt, this will keep the skin moist.
3. After the child is removed form tub, rub fragrant free moisturizer on skin, olive or Shea butter are best.

Within the first 24 hours you will see a difference in your child's skin.

When your buy products for your child make sure you read the ingredients no matter how nice the bottle look.  You will be surprised with the amount of dangerous chemicals are in lotions and moisturizer. There is a web site that you can use that tells you want is in your health, but I am not sure if I am able to post it.



I hope this helps , I know it made a huge difference for my daughter
