My young granddaughter has bad eczema on the back of her legs behind the knees. Has anyone a remedy that will help? Is it due to the jeans being too tight on her legs. It is also, due to synthetic materials.

My elbows break out bad and I have been told that it is either contact dermatitis or stress induced eczema and nothing seems to stop the rashes. I have to use perfume free soaps and detergents and this helps. I have found that if I use just enough white sugar in some water to make the water sweet and put it on the rash and leave it, it seems to stop the itching which stops the scratching which seems to help the rash clear up faster.

I have severe eczema and hives from severe allergies....I take zyrtec & zantac in the morning and allegro & zantac at night. A nutritional counselor told me to take probiotics. This actually cleared my eczema better that the strongest steroid cream prescribed along with the medication. I have slowly stopped the allergy meds & I continued the probiotics. I remembered for my children I mixed Aveno oatmeal lotion and Aquaphor and used that daily on damp skin from the tub or shower.

My cousin used Crisco shortening on his eczema. I believe his was partially caused by a cat allergy. However, it worked.

A dear friend suffers from eczema over his entire body. Quite a few years ago someone told him to use Neutrogena shampoo all over his body. My friend did so and within two weeks of everyday use (and using it as a body wash) the rash disappeared. Mind you, whenever there is a flare up this has to be done. Also, my friend used a generic brand and it worked just as well.

My husband has eczema in his hair. Can anyone suggest anything to help, and to stop the scratching of his scalp, and the flakes falling on his shoulders?

If this is for sure eczema, you should see a dermatologist for special shampoos or whatever. However, if it could possibly be ordinary dandruff - which can be very itchy and certainly involves flakes! You could try some of the excellent dandruff shampoos.

I would start with Head and Shoulders. If that doesn't work, consult with your druggist as there are several good dandruff shampoos for different sorts of dandruff that you can try. If you have already done all this, it is time to see a doctor.

You might try a coal-tar shampoo. I don't remember the name of it, It was recommended by the doctor, and, it helps and is not real expensive. It does smell better than it sounds.

I have eczema. I was wondering if you can use cocoa butter to help with eczema. I researched it on the internet but they wouldn't say what type of cocoa butter to buy. Can cocoa butter help with eczema? If so, what type of cocoa butter can i use?

Thanks,

I can't attest to this but I've also heard that you can use coconut oil for eczema. I recently purchased a small canister of some at WalMart for a couple of bucks over on the food aisle where the oils are. It can be ingested as well as used for cooking but is also supposed to be good for the skin. It comes in a solid form but will melt from the heat of your hand into a liquid form. I tried a little on my hands and they felt soft as a baby's bottom and not at all greasy. Might be worth a try.

I looked up Excema on this site and seen a lot of helpful suggestions, I do have one question of the users of Noxema, do you just rub it in or do you wash the affected area with it? I have tried several things for my eczema and just bought the Noxema to try.

I had a mild case of excema years ago. Although it was mild, it was very persistant. I washed my face with noxema before bed one night and by the morning it was gone. No need to rub it in just wash with it.

For eczema on the body, try putting a couple of cups of rolled oats in the sock of a panty hose and put it in your bath. This pretty much cured my niece's eczema and we had tried every cream and ointment on the market.

Go to the health food store and get some shea butter. The real stuff is very thick and has a slight odor but it works.

I don't know if it will clear the eczema up but if it itches my friend told me to make up a reasonably thick paste of bi carbonate of soda with water and apply whenever needed. It definitely helped me with the itching

I have a question about the users of Noxema. Do you just wash the area with the Noxema or do you rub it in and leave it on? I too have tried all the cortisone creams and even prednisone (which I had a bad reaction to) so I am willing to try anything that is not going to thin my skin or drive my crazy. Thanks!

I have used Noxcema for over 40 years. I apply it after shower and I never rinse it off. I have always had flawless skin and still do. I am in my 50's.

I just started using Noxema for my eczema and it is working better than anything I have tried, including prescriptions. Just rub it in, do not rinse off. Good luck and I hope it helps you as much as it has been helping me.
