My daughter is 3 and at 1 she was diagnosed w/eczema and atopic dermatitis. Her scalp after bath w/itchy & flakey like dandruff. Nothing wrks, help! ?

Itchy scalp. Eczema can be difficult and requires very consistent treatment. Be sure you are not washing her hair every night, as this dries it out and can actually make things worse. You also want to avoid washing the scalp too harshly when you do wash her hair (no more than twice a week). You can use sensitive skin shampoos or deep conditioning treatments. Sometimes medical shampoos are required. Read more...
Eczema=atopic. Eczema (atopic dermatitis) is in the same family of conditions as allergies and asthma. It can't be cured but usually can be controlled. It's best managed by using a sensitive skin cleanser, baths every other day, and using a sensitive skin lotion at least 3 times daily, even when the rash isn't there. Cortisone ointment helps, too. If doing this doesn't help enough, she should see her doctor. Read more...

I'm looking for herbal remedy for atopic dermatitis without side effects?

Doesn't exist. Many people believe that "herbal" means "safe" and "no side effects", and manufacturers encourage that myth. But many substances, such as poison ivy, are "herbal", and you don't want them anywhere near their skin. Furthermore, the product with no possible side effects, herbal or not, does not exist. Don't waste your money on "no side effect" remedies; they don't work, and do have side effects. Read more...

Aveno. Aveno sells a fine powder in packets that comes from the milling of oats. This does provide some relief from itching when added to tepid water and used as a soak. Please do not use oats, it just makes a sticky mess. Read more...
