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).
