6 Natural Remedies for Childhood Eczema
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.
Ending the cycle of eczema flares requires taking a look at what may be causing the rash to break out in the first place, in addition to offering relief for symptoms in the moment. Fortunately, naturopathic medicine can offer a great deal of help for children dealing with this itchy, painful condition.
