Q: I have a 7-month-old baby girl with severe eczema. We have been doing bleach baths two to three times per week, daily and sometimes two-times-a-day baths followed by 2.5 percent hydrocortisone cream and Aquaphor. I hate using the hydrocortisone on her.
I found organic virgin coconut oil and soap nuts (a fruit, not a nut, that grows on the soapberry tree). I boil the nuts to make a soap nut liquid for my son’s bath/shampoo/laundry. Since using these there has been a huge improvement in his skin!
