Several weeks ago, I wrote a post about Grace’s eczema. In desperation, after lots of doctor’s appointments and prescription medications, I went on the internet and researched some natural treatments.
I bought Vitamin E oil and coconut oil, and I have been faithfully applying them to her skin at least once per day. We’re still working on a couple of small spots behind her knees, but what amazing improvement! Her skin is smooth and supple, not like sandpaper any more. Much better than with any of those prescription creams. And a WHOLE lot cheaper.
I’m not sure why doctors are hesitant to discuss possible natural remedies with patients. As much as I love Grace’s pediatrician, she never once suggested alternative treatments, even after repeated failures with each new prescription. I made a decision a few weeks ago to suspend the oral allergy medication as well as the topical creams. I’ve seen no adverse effects, and she’s only gotten better.
It makes me want to do more research about natural remedies!
