Best most effective treatments for facial eczema TecoaJameson&Me Due September 7 (girl); 2 kids; 2 angel babies; Charlottesville, Virginia 4380 posts

I have a 14 month old who gets horrible facial eczema. I am not ok with oral steroids so young and hydrocortisone doesn't work. Everything including our stuff is hypoallergenic. They are testing him at 2 for allergies. Between him teething the pain and the more drool causing his eczema to be worse he's a miserable fella right now and it bums me out :( his daddy my dh has it bad too. I'm just not ok with their remedies. I want something more natural and safe for his face that won't cause weight issues or stretch marks with the prescription hydrocortisone. Thanks

Get the dream cream and dream wash shower smoothie. They are a bit pricey at about 25.00 each, but the 8oz tub will last you at least 6 months if not a year.



The store will tell you not to put the lotion on her face, but I have put it all over my now 4 year old and it has had no ill effects. I think they say that because it will sting if it gets in the eyes.



I have pretty severe eczema and this is the only thing that works for me.

IDK if it will work for psoraiasis. it was designed because the company founder's son has pretty severe eczema. So they set out to create something natural to help him. I used to use steroid cream and it would clear it up very quick. However, when I became more aware of what I was putting in my body, I stopped using it. I went years suffering from huge patches that would never heal until I came across this stuff.



it doesn't heal it as quickly as steroids, but it does keep the itching at bay while it heals and the spot I had for years, cleared up completely in 2 months with use.



Now, that I always have it on hand, Once I catch myself itching, I break it out and it's under control with in a few days and healed in a week or two.



I wash the outbreak every morning w/ the soap and then apply a generous amount of the lotion when I'm dry. I also keep some of the lotion in my purse and at work incase I start to itch again. As long as I keep on it, I don't suffer like I used to.

i would suggest seeing if a Lush store is near you. If they are, you can go in and buy a small item and ask for a sample of both the cream and shower smoothie.



You can try it out and see if it works to at least soothe the spot. If it does, I'd suggest going back and investing in the tubs.



I've been using lush products, including the ones mentioned on my kids since they were around 5 months old. I've never had any adverse reactions. They have some really fun items for kids and adults alike, but their skin care stuff is AMAZING! very worth every penny.
