    I am not a dermatologist, but a family therapist, also work in Drug and Alcohol, one of my clients who gave up alcohol found that his eczma, which he had suffered with for 40 years went away, what a bonus.
    Also I suffer with eczema particularly scaop had tried al sorts of very expensive treatments and some of them very smelly, what works for me is Fructis  anti-dandruff shampoo about $5 a bottle, good luck.

    Eczema or atopic dermatitis tends to have a genetic prediposition and is associated with other atopic disorders, including allergic rhinitis and conjunctivitis, asthma, food allergy and urticaria (hives).
    As with these other disorders, there is no cure, so management is by effective use of elimination of identified (not assumed) trigger factors, which could be dietary especially in children and environmental allergens. House dust mite is a common allergen in certain parts of Australia, particularly coastal regions like Sydney and can both initiate and aggravate atopic dermatitis. As chronic inflammation is responsible for the symptoms of eczema, especially ichiness and scratching that can result in secondary bacterial or fungal infection, it is important to control this with treatment regimens appropriate for each individual depending on age and the severity of the condition.

    Few things are more delicate in this world like babies’ skin. The smallest thing can set out a rash or a skin aggravation. So it’s no big surprise that babies experience the ill effects of infant skin inflammation (AKA dry skin).

    In worst instances of eczema, an excursion to the specialist and some solution treatment may be in place, however in numerous cases, skin inflammation can be lightened and/or cured with a natural remedy.

    Here are four natural remedies for baby eczema.

    Use Natural Moisturizers

    Moisturize your cutie with natural moisturizer. There are a million plant-based creams and oils out there, which contain regularly relieving ingredients such as chamomile and calendula. You can even go for natural eczema cream.

    Oatmeal Bath

    Oatmeal showers help reduce tingling from skin inflammation and other skin aggravations. To make one, basically mix around 1/3 container of oats on the most astounding setting until you have a fine powder. Sprinkle the powder into a tub of running water and mix until water becomes cloudy and silky. Let your baby douse for around twenty minutes.

    Coconut Oil

    Some moms swear by rubbing coconut oil on the affected areas when eczema strikes. And it doesn't get much more natural than that.

    A few mothers insist by rubbing coconut oil on the influenced zones when eczema strikes. You cannot get more natural ingredient than this.

    Use a Humidifier

    Dry air only makes dry skin (eczema) all the more dry. Moisten up your child’s bedroom air with a humidifier when they go to sleep at night.

    I dont know if it is a cure, but I had a client who decided to give up drinking, or loose his marriage.
    After drinking for 40 years he stopped and his eczema disappeared, must have been allergic to something in beer.
