    Smile Little Man with Eczema... HELP!

    Hey guys,

    I'm completely new to this site and have no idea what I'm doing so hopefully this ends up where its supposed to be, and apologies if it doesn't.

    I have 2 boys, a 2 1/2 yr old with perfect skin and a 7 month old riddled with Eczema.

    It first became a problem at around 3 months and since then its been Hell.
    I'm looking for anyone who is or has been in the same situation and just wants to chat about it! I could write an essay on the things we've tried and the creams/lotions/ointments/steroids we've used but don't want to scare anyone off by writing too much to the point where no-one bothers reading!
    I feel like all I think and talk about is Eczema and am slowing driving everyone I know crazy I think :-)

    anyways we're trying the all natural approach at the moment along with seeing a Naturopath, will hopefully see some improvement soon but basically he's just covered!

    I don't want anyone else's little bubs to be going through this but would love to talk to anyone who is and just share stories, idea's etc...

    ok, hopefully hear from some people soon!

    :-) xx

    My little man had Eczema from very early on. We tried heaps of different creams, but nothing worked UNTIL we found MOOGOO!!! The stuff is amazing - smells divine and actually works. I bath him in the body milk and then rub on the Eczema cream all over him. I also used the scalp cream to clear up his cradle cap. This range is available at a lot of Health Food shops. If you haven't tried it, I'd seriously recommend giving it a go. Good luck!

    My sister had this issue with my niece.
    She tried everything, including a colourless diet. Nothing worked!
    But she finally saw a different specialist and he said to put bleach in the bath every night.
    She now has perfect skin and only needs bleach once a week, if that.
    Obviously talk to your gp first but it works wonders!
    Good luck!

    Hey Ladies,

    I'm so sorry for the late reply, I ended up posting the exact same thread in the Eczema section of Health issues and got nicely confused trying to find this one again.
    Thanks heaps for replying, Ive had a few comments about the Moogoo products and have heard of them before so will definately be giving them a go, Also with the bleach baths, when we took Kai to the hospital in November they told me I needed to do these to stop infection, so after lots of thought and avoidance We have given him bleach baths, we havent for a while now because we found QV flare up which is from the chemist and basically does the same thing (kills bacteria)
    the bleach baths really did work in terms of stopping his Eczema getting infected which hasn't happened for a couple of months now but we do still get quite bad flare ups! even with managing the flare ups with steroid creams, which really do work wonders, we always end up back at square one a few days later so I'm over using them. They aren't fixing the problem, just covering it up and he's just as itchy when the Eczema has been cleared by the steroids!

    thanks so much for the replies, Sorry again that I didn't reply sooner :-)

    My DS has had eczema since he was a few weeks old. he got it sooo bad that we had to do wet dressings every night (as per the Royal Childrens Hospital) which worked a treat but now he is nearly 2 and pulls them off. You can give the RCH a call & ask to speak to a skin specialist & see what they recommend for your son.

    We have found that cetaphil cream is working atm plus all the other prescription ointments we have (we have 6 in total for different areas & parts of his body) as his keeps getting infected.
