My DS has had mild-moderate, persistant eczema since 14 months (he is almost 3 now). We use 1% Egocort Ointment for bad flare ups but someone recently suggested coconut oil for managing it and OMG it works!
I add a slop of it to his bath every night and apply directly to his skin morning and night as well and it has literally cleared his eczema up in 3 days! Seriously! No more dry skin, no more redness, no spots NOTHING!
And you can use it for heaps of other stuff too like MCN friendly nappy rash oil, cooking, general moisturiser, sunburn etc etc.
Worth a try
