    Default Apple Cider Vinegar for eczema on toddler?

    Has anyone had any luck using ACV on a toddler with eczema? How do you use it and how often? Thanks.

    Do you mean putting it on their skin? Or drinking some? My DH drinks it for its health benefits but never heard of it for eczema. My DD has eczema too so is be interested to hear if anyone has used it

    DH drinks it and i have used it on rashes etc. Just dilute it, say about a tbsp in a large glass of warm water and apply it directly to the rash. Once a day should be enough to start with.

    Or yeah, in bath water.

    We aren't talking about a rash here though. We're talking about a serious skin condition and I would think that the acidic nature if vinegar would dry out the skin further?

    Yes, but how much and how often. I put a splash in a bath this afternoon and he splashed around in that for a bit. And then I diluted some 1/2 ACV and 1/2 water and splashed that on his arm. And now I read to use a tablespoon in a glass... oops! But when it dried I applied hope's relief cream on his arm as well.

    Oh gosh, I can only imagine that stinging like crazy!

    Ds2 has bad eczema, mild body wash followed by a thick moisturiser (we use cetaphil), a cortisone ointment, and wet bandaging is what gets his flare ups under control .

    With our kids we use Alpha Keri in the bath, thick moisturiser, paw paw cream and then elocon ointment when necessary. Make sure they wear cotton-based as opposed to the more plasticy clothes and bedlinen. Watch the hand soaps they use too as our children's childcare uses one that strips their hands.
