6 Natural Remedies for Childhood Eczema
Eczema and other itchy, crusty rashes can make a kid’s life pretty miserable. It’s hard to watch your little one always scratching, especially if their skin gets so bad that it cracks and bleeds, or gets red and irritated with infection.
Often a pediatric dermatologist will have little to offer parents other than a topical steroid cream such as hydrocortisone. This may stop a flare up in the moment, but it doesn't fix the root cause of the issue.
Many parents get tired of the cycle of eczema flares, topical steroid creams, symptom relief, then right back into another flare-up, and worry about how topical steroids will affect their children in the long run.
