As a routine adjunct to their homeopathic treatment, I recommend taking essential fatty acids to all eczema patients. This is something you can give to your child to complement whatever other treatment they are receiving, and it can make a big difference within a few weeks.
Sufficient quantities of essential fatty acids give moisture to the skin from within, and their release of prostaglandins helps calm inflammation.
Hemp seed oil is an excellent source of omega 3,6 and 9. Try to give your child a tablespoon a day.
If you're local to Southsea, Southsea Health Shop at 241 Albert Rd stocks a good quality hemp oil for £6.99.
Hope this helps and thanks for reading.
