OTC remedy saved our bacon--after trying Many Other Methods

i know this is a little dated. our baby had the worst weeping eczema and thick cradle cap. the pediatrician prescribed antibiotics which just made me weep. but we were so desperate and tried it. it never even touched it. here's what we FINALLY got to work (tried every natural cream for babies we could find):

*blot it dry (gently!)
*apply a THIN layer of Neosporin CREAM (not the ointment). we only did this step a couple times
*glob on like frosting California Baby Calming/Calendula cream.. (can get at Target). i put it on her face when i knew she'd be still for a long time (asleep, nursing...) and could actually watch it soaking in. I used it ALL the time. We went through a couple little jars of the cream, but WORTH IT. cleared up in a couple weeks, after months of nothing else working.
(also tried lots of diet restrictions; we never did find an allergy for her)

Severe Eczema Cleared Naturally

Yes! We healed my son's skin by 95% through natural methods. We originally started with cortisone, but we quickly saw that his skin came back worse than before each time we took the mandatory breaks from the medication. So, that pushed us to natural methods and wow, did it help! Mostly dietary changes, natural skin care and supplements were what helped us. You can read about our story here: Natural Remedies for Eczema: What Worked for My Son

My son didn't have weeping eczema, but in that case, you may want to look at specific weeping eczema treatments.

And be careful with cortisone as topical steroid addiction and topical steroid withdrawal are becoming more widespread. Search TSW on Instagram and you'll see what I mean. Not to scare anyone though. If they are used for short periods of time in lose doses, topical steroids shoudl be ok, but not always. Proceed with caution.

My daughter has chronic eczema and over the years we've tried a lot different creams and nothing has come as close to bringing her the much needed relief of itchy skin and healing as Foderma serum! Thank you Foderma!!!!
