DD has seasonal eczema all over her body every winter. By the spring time it clears up completely, and she's fine until the next winter (hence why I don't think it's diet related). It is super extensive this past week, and we haven't been doing anything differently (other than avoiding baths and showering her instead, every 2-3 days, for the past month or two).
We lotion her up twice per day with organic, unscented, dye-free lotion (the most "natural" we could find at Whole Foods), but it's not going away. I don't want to take her to see our MD since he'll just prescribe something very strong, likely with steroids, or other junk. It didn't bother her until lately, when she occasionally scratches at the patches.
Is there are more natural, and EFFECTIVE way of treating seasonal eczema?
