eczema in 16mo old

Posted by JenniferA on April 11, 2001 at 09:23:17:

Hi, My 16 month old baby has eczema in two patches on his body (one on his back and one on his leg). From what I've read in my books, they say just to apply non-fragrant moisturizer to it. Rather than treating it though, is there a way to prevent it? Could it possibly be related to our family dog that he comes in close contact with, who also has dry patches of skin?

Thanks for any help.

To get rid of the patches before they get bigger, try Florasone cream. It is a natural homeopathic cream which I understand is the #1 prescribed cream in Europe for eczema.They even prescribe it over steroid cream. I had wonderful results with the rapidly spreading patch on my daughter's leg. Get it at a natural vitamin/herbal shop.

Hi, Jennifer.

My concern with the Florasone is that is would be just a safer piece of black tape to put over the warning light on this little tyke's dashboard.

To MY way of thinking, she has LGS and likely C-RS as the problem that is causing the warning light.

I certainly agree with the good Dr. about getting to the root of the eczema. I mentioned the Florosone because I was prescribed steroid cream which I refused. The florosone cream cleared it up and saved me the trip to the specialist's office.Now I can work on getting to the source so that there is no recurrence. I have also heard that essential fatty acids are important is preventing this problem from arising. I saved a trip to the dermatologist's office for a plantar's wart by using a paste of castor oil and baking soda twice a day. When I saw the little girl down the street all bandaged up and in severe pain after the dr. froze her wart off the bottom of her foot, I was certainly glad I chose my own remedy. The irony is that the other girl's wart has reappeared and she has had subsequent painful treatment. The place where my daughter had the wart is now as smooth as a baby's bottom (not even a scar).
