Sorry that I cannot be of any help, jake's mum! I wonder too, and am hereby subscribing!
I have used a natural lavender cream on my son since he was 3 months old, every night after bath I put it on and he hasn't broken out at all, I put it down to the cream. My older son was always having breakouts from birth to 2 until I started using the cream on him now he seems to have outgrown it. Unfortunately the product that I use is no longer being made, it was from Woodlands Estate Lavender Giftshop (http://www.thechurches.com.au/index....d=11&Itemid=11 ) I will run out in the next couple of months - so interested if anyone has had success with a similar product.
I have used coconut oil on myself and is takes the itch away instantly and my rash was gone the next day.
Do a bit of research (type eczema and coconut oil) into google and you can read lots of positive articles on it.
It's very cheap, and is a natural antimicrobial, antiviral and antibacterial.
You might want to look at diet, I think a healthy gut helps skin heal and stay moist. Yoghurt etc. Has he had any antibiotic treatments? They can upset those friendly gut bacteria levels.
My DS has very mild eczema but I managed to finally clear it up by putting a spoon of oat milk powder by Aromababy in his bath water each night
this i probably a little random, but anyone had success on getting rid of eczema on adults?? i suffered from it as a child, but outgrew it. skip forward to 2 years ago when i moved to the brisbane area and all of a sudden my eczema came back? i have no idea what's causing it, and have tried numerous products but can't seem to get any good results it is mostly behind my knees, but i also occasionally get it on my arms too. i have tried dermaid, manuka honey cream, moo goo, and a few others with no success. i would prefer a natural remedy too!
With my son I used copius amounts of sesame oil, and also colloidal silver spray/cream... I'm not SURE if they were the 'cure' 'cos he seems to get it for a short period every year, it's a mystery, but those things helped to keep it moist and under control...
we use alpha keri lotion it works very well to treat the dry skin & irritation.
