FINALLY ..... a break!

Since March this year Eden have consistently flared every 2 to 3 weeks ... but we have finally had a break!! We are at the 4 week mark without any flares and her skin is looking sooooo good ... better than it has in months!!
She is now 14 months TSW.

We stopped using all ointments and moisturisers / creams ... and only added a few drops of lemon grass oil (suggested by Isaiah's mom .... genius!!) to a small tub of pure zinc ointment ... can't believe the difference it has made!

We have basically gone through moisturiser withdrawal but felt it still essential to apply this lemon grass / zinc ointment balm to the infected areas as the lemon grass is an anti-fungal and antiseptic. Her legs and arms are still full of sores from the previous flare (the last flare have lasted for an entire month so, you can imagine the skin damage...) but who's complaining??? We are just happy that we have had this break ... Eden is so relieved and all the kids and teachers are commenting on how beautiful her skin is looking ... let's hope this is the beginning of the end of this long journey.

Either way ... we are still extremely grateful to see improvement in body, mind and spirit.

  3. Hello I suffer from eczema all over my body as well as my lady parts I see a specialist that specializes in labia dermatology she called it lychen playnus chronicus* she prescribed me ointments and jellies as well as prednisone* I would start with 50mg a day for 5 days and ween down. Was working for awhile but I recently have had a flare it's the worst feeling at 31 to have to deal with a constant itching in your area and I am afraid I'm becoming immuned to the medicine so it's not working as good. I'm very interested in seeing if this lemon grass/zinc may help and solve my issue it has taken over my life. I'm willing to try anything at this point. If you could give me exact brands measurements how many times daily to apply etc any information I would greatly appreciate it.

  4. I too have a precious baby boy who is suffering from bad eczema. His little face is raw looking and oozing clear liquid, none of the prescribed ointments and creams are helping. It has only made it worse! I would like to know where you purchased your lemongrass and zinc? And also would like to know how often would I apply this remedy to my baby's face?
    I hope to get the same results you got for your baby.
    Thanks in advance
