I actually stumbled across your posts whilst searching the internet trying to cure my own psorisis! Psorisis and eczema are closely related and I would luv to share with you the results of my extensive research. Diet effects both Exzema and Psorisis, and great results have been shown by reducing diary intake in children with eczema. I would strongly advise anyone to STAY AWAY from steriod based creams and cortisone, the way they work is just insane, they actually stop your immune system from doing it's job. I have just this week started using a cream called Medihoney and things are definately improving, I have heard of several women swearing by it for treatment on their children with eczema, and one of those ladies is a pharmasist! it's is a hypoallergenic cream which contains antibacterial honey, aloe vera and chamomile. Another product which may be hard to find, is dead sea salt, I have read that this has amazing effects when bathed in. there are also a range of homeopathic minerals specifically designed to treat psorisis and eczema, I would definately take this option before opting to use cortisone creams! Anyway I hope this helps with your kids.
Kookymum.. you mentioned you suffer from psorisis? so do I.. I have had it now only on my elbows for about 8 years, I like many others I presume, have been prescribed zillions of different cortisone/steriod based creams which have had little to no effect. I recently started to get spots on my legs and thought this is enough.. and have done some extensive research and am well on the way to curing my own psorisis! Whilst still early in the game - here is some insighfull information which you may already know, but if not may help you to cure your own psorisis. Psorisis is a condition causes by the immune system and nervous system, if you treat both those things in a natural way you're guaranteed results. I have begun a very healthy diet and am taking homeopathic treatment called Engystol to boost my immune system. I have also stopped using my cortison cream and have started using Medihoney which is showing improvement. Another recommedation is to take a herbal antidepresant which lets face it, we could all use having kids! I am using Hyperifort which is made by blackmores. There are still other things I would like to implement but am still sourcing information. this is a great place to start though!
