My 4 year old son had eczema bad when he was a baby. I discovered he is allergic to citric acid, which is in EVERYTHING, including the doctor prescribed lotions to help it (Eucerin included), formula, some diapers and some wipes....they were only making it worse. When I eliminated foods/lotions containing citric acid his eczema went away. Only recently has he broken out - because of eating snacks at school with citric acid in them. Did you know the main active ingredient in Comet spray cleanser is citric acid? And they put that stuff in our food! Nice. Anyway, that's my two cents. We've found that the Healthy Babies brand of eczema cream works well to help heal breakouts.

Hi evnlee,

The tests are simple ones. I've had 2 different kinds. One test involved simply putting the different allergens under plasters on my back - I think there were about 30 different plasters, and I couldn't wash my back for 10 days! to see whether any gave a reaction.

The other more common test is called a skin-prick test. Usually a nurse will make a little scratch on your inner arm with a sterile lancet, then put a drop of the allergen on the scratch. Usually they only do 5-10 of these. The scratch is tiny, you really can't feel it at all, it's not like an injection or anything. It's just so the allergen can get under your skin. Then about 20 minutes later they have a look at the marks to see if any have come up as a lump.

Hope this helps

Hi. I've recently discovered that putting toothpaste on my itchy patches really does the trick for me. It's stops the itch for a very long time. It won't moisterise the skin, but it's better than putting steroid cream on.

My two daughters have been dealing with Eczema all their life. We have used all the steroids and creams on the market and don’t feel comfortable with the harm they is doing to their bodies. We have looked for years for a natural way to control their Eczema and have found it; ViaViente. We only put it on their skin when their Eczema flare up and within a couple days of using Via its under control. It also helps with the dry skin that is associated with it. Via really works and you will be amazed just like we were. Our daughters are 4 and 5 years of age. Via works and I'm not a sales person or a spammer. Shoot me an email if you want more into.
