    Default Home Remedies for Eczema? Urgent!!

    Hi all, DS has really atrocious eczema at the moment. I don't want to get into how crap I am but FOB has been adamant about not using creams or anything to soothe it, but now DS is distressed and can't sleep because he's so uncomfortable. Does anyone have anything I can mix up and use? Could I try nappy rash cream?

    Yes, I will find a way to take him to the doctor ASAP tomorrow and deal with the fallout, but is there anything I can do tonight?

    Fill a stocking with a cup of oats and put it in the bath. It will make the water cloudy but that's good. You want to try to not let the skin dry out. How old is he? I have heard that Pricess margaret hospital have a good fact sheet. I will try to find it.....

    I can't find the info but from memory there is a specialist at PMH that recommends wrapping the affected area in bandages moistened in simple moisturizers so the skin doesn't dry out.

    I only have nurofen. No sorbolene. I just tried Aloe Vera and this other cream and he went nuts. It's pretty bad. God I am so mad at myself that my ex can do this to me. It was the same when he had conjunctivitis. He wants to find and eliminate the cause and not use medication.

    I've slathered him in nappy cream which is all I can find but now I'm stressed about the fumes. And I'll try the oat bath in a bit. Thanks. Sorry. So stressed.

    Have copied these tips from internet:

    The best time to apply wet wraps is right before bedtime. Follow these steps:

    Have your child soak in a lukewarm bath for about 5 to 10 minutes.
    After the bath, gently pat the skin dry with a towel and apply moisturizer or medication as directed.
    Moisten clean gauze bandages with water, and wrap the affected skin.
    Cover the wet bandages with a dry bandage or towel to lock in the moisture, and leave overnight.
    You can apply wet wraps on any part of your child's body that is especially itchy.

    Do you have coconut oil?
    It soothes and moisturisers and is natural

    Use Cold Compresses to Relieve the Itch
    Try using a damp, cold washcloth, or cover an ice pack in a soft towel. Hold the compress to your child's skin for a few minutes or as needed to help relieve itch.

    You can repeat as necessary throughout the day.
