Baby Eczema – Treating skin disorders with herbs
Posted On March 25, 2009
Hello Herb Lovers,
My little Pixie Boy has some skin issues I am not at all happy with. I suspect that he has inherited possible food intolerances from me and that the dermatitis on his legs and back are a symptom of this. Since I dont do cortisone on babies I went out to look at natural alternatives.
While I was out and about I found this little gem. A body wash that is based on herbs, essential oil and homeopathic ingredients. Natralia Nourish – Eczema & Psoriasis Wash can be used as a body wash and shampoo, it smells great and seems to be helping Pixie Boy with his skin issue. It is PH balanced and free from fragrances, nut oils, synthetic colour, soap and the dreaded SLS.
You’ll find it contains these goodies:
aloe vera juice
It is very gentle and safe for use on children. They also have a baby range (so my research tells me) but I am happy to use the big people version as long as I dilute it a lot. My eldest – Spawn – has eczema and I like a one product for everyone approach keeping down the number of bottles littering the bathroom.
If you have a child who suffers from dermatitis of some sort and you have tried a myriad of lotions and potions, you might want to give this natural product a go.
Once Pixie Boy has had his bath I use a baby oil I make myself which contains calendula flowers, elderflowers and lavender flowers which keeps his skin moisturised and soft, while at the same time utilising the healing powers of those three ingredients to treat the skin disorder in a very natural, gentle way. Learn how to make your own infused oils.
Now that I have found a way to successfully treat the symptoms all I have to do is to figure out the cause of his skin issues.
