Wooo hooo! I finally found a great natural eczema treatment!! - Page 6

post #101 of 105
Just for anyone's info who would like it. I have tried almost everything we could think of on my daughter. Her skin was open and oozing by the time she was 1 month old. I ended up taking her to a pediatric dermatologist and we are now using a combination of desonide and petrolium on the bottom and face and scalp and a mixture of Lociod and petrolium on her body about every 3 days. We use the Elidel on her inbetween.
She is 17 months now and pretty clear except for her belly and hands. I was happy with the help we got from the derm... you might want to check it out. Our insurance covers it like a regular doc.

Hi Dizzi,
First of all welcome to MDC

We tried Elidel on DS too and had some side effects (flu like symptoms, I suspected he also had a headache) and then I started reading some scary stuff about it and using it on kids under 2 since it is an immunosuppressant. Have you seen the recent warnings that it is under investigation by the FDA? It's such a new drug with not much data behind it.

After I read more about it, we wanted to try to solve this while also avoiding the risks of using pharmaceuticals.

fwding thread to neighbor... good info especially about dangers of elidela nd protopic and bathing everyday with a good moisturizer!

Also, taking omega 3,6,9 internally and probiotics really is important.

Flax seed and Borage oil work well for anyone allergic to fish oil.
