Just wondering if anyone has any natural remedies for eczema that are safe for a 5 month old. My dd has a mild form of it mostly in the folds of skin on her legs and ankles. My ds had it when he younger. I think the prescription cream from the doctor was too strong.
I'd like to try an alternative treatment this time.

Hi,
Is your DD vaccinated? We see this so often after the vaccines start.

It does happen in unvaccinated but much less.

Udo's Oil
http://www.udoerasmus.com
Many of us are lacking in the Omega 3 oils
It also may help you if it is your lack your passing on to your infant

can be very helpful giving orally can put on breast if breastfeeding or can give in bottle of breastmilk if she will drink that way

But if that doesn't help with a few weeks, I would consider seeing a quality classical homeopath

click on Find a homeopath

Any creams from the doctor would have steroids in them (cortisone) and very dangerous in the long run. We see asthma develop in many children later who have had their eczema suppressed with steroid and other creams.

Thanks Sheri
I'll try the Udo's oil. I think I'll take it myself as well and apply to my breast. We don't have bottles.
What you are telling me is scary. My first ds was vaccinated, had ezcema, and developed asthma. He has outgrown the ezcema and we have been free of an asthma attack for 3 years. I refused to put him on steriods for the asthma, but I did use the creams from the ped.
Sadly enough, dd did not show signs of ezcema until after her second set of vaccinations. I'm going to talk to dh about stopping vaccination. Is there harm for not completing them? I wish I knew more 10 years ago or even half a year ago.
