eczema

Posted by Mark G on March 29, 2001 at 20:48:49:

My 2 year old daughter has eczema mainly on her cheek, we
have been using sorbelene and Vitamin E cream with little improvement. We have also tried cortison cream with some success but have been advised not to continue because of side effects. Could you please suggest any essential \ natural oil to help in this condition.

Regards

Mark G

Hi Mark,

Have you tried tea tree oil? It kills bacteria.

Namaste'

Hi, Mark.

Your child's body is asking for help. NOTHING you can put on the surface will cure this since the cause is coming from inside the child. The temporary benefits you see from the creams frequently encourage people that they are "handling" the problem. Would you put black tape over the warning lights on the dashboard of your car???

Go to the archives about eczema, about LGS and about Candida. The most common triggering cause of eczema in a child this age is dairy. It is NOT the cause but you might be surprised how long it would get rid of the problem by TOTALLY eliminating dairy from her diet. It will take about a month to totally clear up the eczema IF that is a trigger.

Let us know how she does.

Try Florasone Cream. It is the #1 cream prescribed in Europe for eczema- It is a natural homeopathic cream and is put out by a company called Boericke and Tafel. I got mine in a naturopathic health shop and it worked wonders on my daughter's eczema. Completely cleared it up within two or three( at most)weeks.

Thanks, Cathy.

I would be interested in anyone else, with experience with this material, sharing their experiences with the BB.

Hi - My granddaughter had a rash on her cheek which started when she was one year old and lasted for a year. My daughter did as you have done--tried different creams, and then finally the cortisone cream, which would clear it up but it would just come back. She would also get red eyes for no apparent reason (not bloodshot,just around the rims).
The eczema and redness gradually disappeared as she got older (she is now almost three). All we could figure out was that perhaps it was an allergy and that her system got an immunity to the substance or substances. It may have been certain foods, and we know that one cause was an old stuffed animal that had been my daughter's 20 years ago, and which was immediately put back in storage.
She used to scratch her cheek until it bled, while she was sleeping. Hopefully, she "grew out of it".
Just thought you'd be interested in our experience with eczema.
