Hi, I was wondering whether anyone could recommend me a naturopath (in Adelaide) who deals with eczema in babies. Does anyone have anything that has worked for them? I have tried moogoo, steroid cream, papaw, antibacterial creams, copious moisterising etc all of which haven’t really helped. And has anyone found out the root cause that have caused baby eczema? Thanks.

  • I swear by hazelwood necklaces!! my miss had constant eczema and i was sick of putting steriod creams on her as they are not good for their precious skin! I got her a hazelwood necklace in feb of this year and she hasnt got it since! Got mine from http://www.hazelaid.com was a good price compared to others i have seen :)

  • Lee-Ann Fitzpatrick from life force, if you google her shell set you on track, she practices around golden grove

  • I have had 2 with and 2 without excema what worked for first did not for the other, now I cover her in sorbolene lotion before bath or shower to protect her skin from the water and the warmth helps her to absorb the moisture, then straight after apply the medicated cream, be careful not to cross spread – use gloves to apply cream and put a small amount on each finger to apply, hard at first but the improvement happens very quick and then u need to maintain moisture

  • My daughter suffers, we can keep it under control with bath oil in bath, salt water baths and kondi’s crystals in bath water. My paed also suggested bleach baths. 1 part bleach 3 parts water i remember. We also moistureise her every night, keep her in a cool house about 24 degrees, and give zirtec to her when shes really itchy and uncomfortable

  • S26 causes eczema really bad…try changing to nan ha gold n try cetaphil cleanser n the moisturiser it works…

  • 21 years ago my eldest son had infantile eczma, 19 years ago my daughter also had infantile eczma, 14 years ago my youngest son never had to endure it. The only thing I did differently was to bath him less often. Bathing no matter what you use removes the skins natural oils and leaves it dry try only bathing every second day and when the heat comes use pintarsol in the water to both disinfect and clean the skin and allow the skin to totally dry before you dress

  • Try using goats milk soap for the bath to sooth the skin

  • i’ve bought stuff from http://www.shopnaturally.com.au for bathtime/hair washing as all the stuff at the shops brings her out in it even though we have a dairy/gluten free diet for her

  • my daughter’s eczma turned out to be an intolerance to dairy and gluten which a naturopath picked up.
