* My daughter suffered from eczema when she was a baby

* My daughter suffered from eczema when she was a baby. Herbal remedies and natural healing methods recommended by a qualified herbalist worked for us. I also took the herbs as I was breastfeeding at the time and, within six months, the condition completely disappeared. Half a cup of cider vinegar in the baby's bath water was also an excellent anti-itching solution. - J. Gibson

* This child may be deficient in omega-6 and -3. Cod liver oil enriched with these fatty acids as a capsule or emulsion each day should clear up the problem. - Ken Jackson

* The first thing to do with eczema is to eliminate cow's milk from the diet. If the mother is breastfeeding, she should eliminate all dairy food from her diet also. - Jane Dean

* A twice-daily application of fresh urine really does work for eczema. Massage it into the skin. When its absorbed, there is no aroma. Plus, it leaves the skin feeling softer while removing the pain and itching. - Collette Hurley

* Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise! Children's skin can dry out, especially at night. Olive, macadamia and avocado oils are great in the bath or applied directly to the skin before bedtime. Another good lotion is 100-per-cent pure shea butter. - J.C.K. Niala
