Eczema baby

Anyone know any natural products that work for eczema patches on a baby? We've been using badger balm, but need something stronger as we're not really getting results...

Re: Eczema baby

We've used California Baby's Calendula Cream for years when it gets bad. A dad at Target actually started up a conversation with me about how great it was for his son when he saw me picking up a container. In my experience eczema is usually from food allergies so you may consider eliminating the top allergens if it gets severe.

Re: Eczema baby

Melalueca and Lavender essential oil is the first thing in 4 years that I found works for my DS with crazy sensitive skin and eczema all winter. I tried at least a dozen lotions before that.

Calendula and figuring out the cause. Coconut oil helps, too.

Re: Eczema baby

I was getting ready to buy some lavender oil to add to a mix I was going to make for my son and ended up buying some ready-made lavender lotion with some good ingredients. He doesn't like it and it's too thin. (And now I have a huge bottle of it to use up! We generally don't even use lotion, I make a skin and hair butter that we all use.) I want something thick and sticky. I think I will go with my initial thought and make what I want and add some beeswax to it.

My son has eczema/allergies/asthma and all are acting up right now.

Re: Eczema baby

I just use coconut oil. Works wonders! And I can use it for other things so I don't have to go buy something that has only one use.
