Eczema Rss

My baby boy developed eczema quite badly on his ears and groin at 5 weeks of age. I have been prescribed creams, however i would prefer a natural alternative. Do you have any recommendations? I currently use QV cream on his cheeks and have tried the QV Bath Oil but find that this irritates his skin in the bath. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.

i ofund paw paw cream is fantastic.
i used the QV range on my little boy and it only "fed" the exzema and made it worse
try some paw paw, it got rid of my sons, ( he only has it mild now!)
I have been using 'Alpha Kerri' cream on my daughter...she doesn't get it bad but still gets it bad enough. I find this cream has been great and seems to work really fast on her.
I haven't tried this yet but am going too (I got some samples to try first). It's called 'Back to Nature Baby Balm'. It's a natural skin therapy and helps treat and heal nappy rash, and also relieves the symptoms of eczema, soothes, hydrates dry and damaged skin.
They sent me a letter saying it is found in some pharmacies and health food shops.

One of the babies in my mother's group suffers quite badly from eczema and her mum strongly recommends 'Aromababy' products as they are as organic as possible. Some chemists & specialty baby stores stock the products, including barrier creams, bath washes & moisturisers. The website is for more info. Hope this helps.
Hi! My little boy is 9 1/2 months old now, and 3 months ago I took him to the doctor with excema, School sores(yeah go figure...must have caught them from swimming???), and bad rashes in moist under arms and in groin area. I was prescribed creams and decided that it really wasnt any good for him. I have since started on a range of baby products that have no toxins and no chemicals. Since starting these products I have had no rashes or excema. It cleared up almost overnight...Baby products and a lot of chemist products (I'm talking not in a health food store) have additives like SLS and Propylene Glycol. Propylene Glycol is anti freeze (so makes sense that it is not good for bubs skin) and SLS is a skin irritant. Mineral oils are also bad for the skin!! Check that your baby products have none of these. I was given a list of all the chemicals in baby products and what their effects are by my Naturopath. If you would like this list, please email me, and I will email it to you!! My email is:
I think it took a full week before the excema disappeared...but what a relief. I will NEVER go back to ordinary products for my little one. Cheap products, mean lots of problems for me!! I hope you are having some relief by now...good luck, you should find something that works well for you and your son.
