Hi Little Blessing,
Ezcema is usually caused by an essential fatty acid deficiency. Also can be caused by an essential fatty acid imbalance. Here in the USA - we eat way more foods that contain Omega 6 fatty acids, and too little of the Omega 3 fatty acids. First thing I would do is go to your health food store and buy some organic flax seed oil - you can get it in capsules too. Flax seed is very high in Omega 3. Now, there is some controversy about how well the omega 3 from flax seed oil is assimilated by the body - and some say it doesn't get assimilated very well, so there are other sources of omega 3's - from fish (but I don't like to eat fish now because most fish nowadays is contaminated with mercury and other serious pollutants which are very dangerous to our health - and if you get farm raised fish, you'll get cleaner fish but you won't get the essential fatty acids you need). There is also walnut oil, canola oil (which I personally think is dangerous and don't like to consume), olive oil, and more that I can't think of right off the bat. Also, you can find fish oil capsules that have been purified to remove the contaminants - but personally, I would start with the flax seed oil first and if that doesn't work for your child after a few weeks, then switch to a fish oil capsule from your health food store that clearly states on the label that it has been purified to remove contaminants. I believe Carlson Labs makes a good, clean source. Other thing to give your child to help with ezcema is good bacteria, that contains acidophilus and other strains of beneficial bacteria. If you are interested in more info about brands I would recommend and try first - please email me at email@example.com
I would and could say a lot more here - but I am really tired (almost my bedtime now) and I don't want to overwhelm you with too much info right now. Please email me. I hope this helps. Take care.
Oh yes, just remembered:
check out www.mercola.com
and do a search about ezcema and also on omega 3 fatty acids. You'll find tons of info on both topics. This is an excellent alternative health website and very popular and very good info - although Dr. Mercola acvocates fish oil from a clean source rather than flax seed oil - but, I still think you should try the flax seed oil first.
