Slippery Elm Update

     I wanted to give an update on my child's arms, that had a really bad flare up of eczema.  For some reason, winters are worse for her than in the summer.  I am sure that it is some sort of clue as to what is ailing her, but I haven't put it together yet.

This is after one week of slippery elm and creams.

This is after four weeks of slippery elm and creams.

I use the slippery elm first and then applied the cream* on top of it.  We did it three times a day.   We have stopped using the slippery elm (because her arms have cleared up of all the little bumps) and now we just apply the creams three times a day to keep it moisturized.  

I do want to mention, that I had used just the creams for two weeks and saw no improvement.  When I added the slippery elm and then the creams, I had the above success.

*The creams we used were a rotation of Unda 270, calendula cream, and vaseline (petroleum jelly).
