... remedies are they best for this
Food can cause some problems for small children with it, so pay attention to what he is eating and when the eczema gets worse. When treating a lady I took care of who had it, we used selsun blue shampoo to wash her whole body. It helped keep it down. The dr prescribed triamcinolone which worked well for her. The thing is its a strong cortisone and using it on a small child may be a problem. I would suggest a dermatologist. Keep it clean and dry, as much as you can keep a 2 yr old clean and dry, lolol. I don't know of any natural remedy but someone else may.
You might try putting vitamin E oil on it. I prefer to get the vitamin E capsules, steralize a safety pin and just poke it in the end of the capsule and squeeze the oil out onto the eczema and rub it in. I've also heard that tea tree oil is supposed to be good for eczema, but I've never tried it myself so I can't verify that. My daughter and I have both been prescribed Lidex cream for our eczema. I know that she was a small child when she started using it, but I can't remember her exact age. However, I do know that she was older than 2. I think maybe 8 or so. I'm not sure if it's appropriate for a child as young as 2 or not, but his doctor will. It comes in a generic form that's relatively inexpensive. I wish you in luck in finding something that works for him. Eczema can be really miserable, especially at such a young age.
What is his doctor saying or prescribing? Some children do out grow this. If so, it is linked to an allergy. He should be further tested by a doctor and see if there is additional treatment to be used, and allergy tested.if a parent has allergies then that needs to be explored.
Unfortunately not all conditions have a natural remedy, especially if it is an undetected allergy. However, that treatment is easy. Find it and don't feed it. lol. Has this work up been done for him?
