OK, this is gross, I know.
We moved to NY from FL and the winter weather has been tough on us. DS1 has really bad eczema--although oatmeal baths seem to be helping, along with cocoa butter, Omega 3s, and cortisone cream on really bad flare ups. I've recently had very dry fingers--and yesterday, they became so bad that the skin has started to crack and bleed. They're incredibly painful.
Does anybody have any remedies? Last night, I tried soaking them in warm olive oil...and then put a thick layer of cocoa butter and cotton socks on for night. Didn't really help.
