My DS1 has had really bad eczema for over a year, I have to keep taking him to the skin clinic as it seems to get worse and never better. I buy all the expensive creams and do everything they say, but his eczema is a very stubborn type and is really hard to manage apparently. Im at my wits end cos he keeps scratching at it which makes it spread and bleed, even though I put patches over it. I spoke to a lady today who's daughter had the same thing when she was little, and she swears by olive oil, says to rub it over the area several times a day and reckons its the only thing that worked. Im going to give it a go I think, has anyone else tried this?
