    Default We have found a solution!!!!

    YAY! Finally an answer to our prayers!!!!

    We have found that baths are the cause of paris' irritation (how bizarre!) as when she has a shower she is fine, I even gave her a very tepid bath the other day to see if it was temperature related and she still flared right up And we don't even use soaps!!!!

    We also started using MediHoney Eczema Cream a month or so ago and that really seems to do the trick.



    We are so thrilled its almost gone! I am so happy!

    Just thought I would share the news, and if you have a bubs with eczema maybe try the shower instead it worked for us it might work for you too

    I found that when I gave dd her bath her eczema would flare up. I tried everything. Then as I was cleaning the bath one day I realised that it could be the cleaning solution that was causing the problem. I started using tea tea oil mixed with water to clean the bath and dd eczema hasn't flared up since.

    I wish I could say that was what caused Paris' eczema but I use enjo, so no chemicals at all, and still flared up

    But thats great news. As for Paris her eczema has nearly all cleared up now I really think its thanks to that medihoney cream Worked a treat, and she can have the occasional bath now too!

    I had eczema for years and years since I was a child. It wasnt food related and wouldnt be controlled by anything!
    Mum struggled and tried everything. I remember as a child being smothered in creams .. a different one every week or so and nothing ever seemed to help except the nasty ones (Cortisone esp.), I didnt want to use cortisone except when absolutely essential for my sanity~!

    I moved to Qld and it dissapeared for years until I moved back to Adelaide when it flared up again chronically at 30! I found after showers it often flared up and in winter it was sometimes worse!

    Eventually I had a friend who noticed my eczema on my neck at work recommend a product I hadnt tried... Cetaphil.
    It comes as a wash lotion, soap bar and a moisturiser. I tried just the lotion first.. then the moisturiser.. and eventually the soap bar ( no soap at all in it) its a humectant and replaces skin moisture and calms angry skin. I was stunned at how well it worked when things such as the coal tart products, egoderm, pinetarsol etc failed. I even had tried the NS24 and the NS8 (?) creams.
    Cetaphil has changed my life literally !!! I think the best bit is it is so gentle and works for dermatitis and eczema. I just thought I would share this with you all as it has given me relief after 30 yrs of itching and hassles!!

    goodluck to you all
