Thanks for sharing Nady. I've been watching any eczema threads that pop up b/c my 3yr old daughter has it. It only flares in the spring/summer but, it can get really bad on the humid days and I hate seeing the cut skin, scratching etc. Poor thing.

I've haven't done a full elimation diet on her b/c she already restrict so much from her own diet due to major issues with texture that she'd really have hardly any variety (we do our best primally for her). Sadly, after reading this, I'm even more convinced that it's diet. Well, a combination of diet and environment that causes the breakouts. I've been sitting on doing anything rash (ie elimination diet) b/c it's not that bad and creams have help reduce it. As she gets older, we'll see.
Eczema has to do with the overreaction of the immune system to various substances. So herbal remedies that balance the immune system are very helpful in treating eczema. I take serena skin anti-eczema extract twice a year to prevent break outs. It works very well for me. I don't have flare ups since I started this treatment.
