eczema is generally caused by what we eat, or come into contact with. Try to cure it from the inside out would be my recommendation. To soothe already irritated skin you can make a mix with either GSE (grapefruit seed extract) and a carrier oil like olive or coconut (coconut oil would be best as it is a natural yeast fighter too) or tea tree oil mixed with the coconut oil. Just a few drops of the GSE OR TTO, in a bit of the carrier oil. for instance, if you have a teaspoon full of the coconut oil, mix in 4 drops. test it on your skin first. GSE can be put straight on the skin, but can cause drying so it is not recommended. TTO can irritate if used without dilution. Then cut all dairy (most likely culprit, though it can be other things like wheat, soy, etc.) out of the diet of both of you and cure the eczema from the inside out.
