Neem oil I would put in her bathtub- (she was like 2mo old when the doc sd eczema,) after her bath, and keep her in for about 10 mins.
The one I got was thick and dark and of course neem is strong smelling- would leave oily marks on the tub, and stained it, so I stopped when I switched to regular tub.
Everyone is different and I'm glad the calendula/lanolin works for him- I tried a celendula extract which didnt- I think I have a list of a lot of things which didnt -
After a year of trying a lot of things, I try to go natural as much as possible, I found a product in a holistic site and got a sample- it showed improvement enough to make me use it on a regular basis.
Its called Surestop for babies at www.katuri.com
and I've stopped using the hydrocortisone(1% ) after that, using it instead on the flareups.- Hers was not as severe a case as many I'm hearing, but just bad enough to use the cort few times in a month.
Eventually I saw clear skin- and its been a year now and I saw only mild flareups this winter.
She can also handle a few products that she couldnt before- so maybe she is getting stronger.
I also give her Cod liver oil and Vit C on a regular basis and bathe her with a Marseilles soap with 72% olive oil, which used to be the only soap she could handle at one point of time.
