Try Kukui Nut Oil or Kukui Oil from Hawaii for eczema. It works well.

Hemp Soap made by Oregon Trail Soap Company
It contains glycerine, hemp oil and shea butter and it works for us!!
I get it online at: www.oregontrailsoapco.com or by phone 503-329-9554
This seems like an advertisement to me... only 1 post. Fishy.
Anyways, I have a 4yo dd who has suffered with excema since she was tiny, mostly in the winter, and I had found a few products that worked for her if I use them religiously, until this year. She has it worse than ever, and no matter what I do, she is burning and itching.
I've known she has a dairy intolerance (behavioral symptoms mostly - she stopped tantruming entirely when we took her off cow's milk at 2), however I haven't eliminated *all* dairy since yogurt/kefir/cheese don't seem to make her react like the straight milk does.
So, with fear and trembling, I feel I should try eliminating all dairy... But I am so overwhelmed by that, making sure we catch every little bit of dairy, reading ingredients, etc... right?
Can any mom who's gone down this road tell me how you did it or a good resource/website that explains exactly how you do an elimination diet, how long, when to reintroduce, etc...
OK, one more question... dd has had a blood allergy test, just a blood draw at the hospital and they did a screen, which came up with nothing... is all the prick testing really that much more effective?? I'd rather not subject her to that, but it would be worth it if it helps us find the culprit.
Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!!
Okay, wise mamas... need help!
We've been wheat-free for over a week now and her eczema is getting WORSE?? What is going on? I have been carefully scrutinizing every morsel that crosses her lips and I haven't noticed an increase in any other food group, either.
Any many mamas here opted to get rid of their pets to try and help with the eczema? If yes, did it help significantly?
I feel like I am grasping at straws here, I have changed my diet and DS's eczema has only gotten worse. We are trying craniosacral therapy right now and from here I don't know what to do next.
I looked everywhere for the Bag Balm but couldn't find it. I'm in Canada and I'm wondering if it's even available here. I doubt the free shipping at the Riteaid site is to Canada.
