As any parent with a little one struggling with eczema can tell you, the healing journey is no small feat. Many tears (from her and me ha!), constant itching, and the pursuit of healing can sometimes be overwhelming.
My little girl has been struggling with eczema since she was around 4 months old. Super dry, itchy, sensitive skin. She reacts to many foods and even just her itching sometimes causes hives.
We found that her eczema is most likely due to mold exposure in our old house + being born breach and having some damage to her nervous system from that and not getting chiropractic to address it right away leading to a weakened immune system.
We are going about healing her skin and the immune dysfunction by finding and treating the ROOT cause. Our approach is incredibly holistic, treating all areas for total healing:
- Food and supplements: Focusing on strengthening her immune system by strengthing her gut and microbiome.
- Body Work: Acupuncture and Chiro
- Energy Medicine: NEAT/BioSet
- External Care
Michaderm Natural Baby Eczema Therapy
Although our goal is to heal the skin and allergic reactions from within, throughout our journey, we have found some products that have really helped.
If you are like me, you are trying to do everything in your power to find natural products for eczema that are non-toxic and steroid-free – focusing on long-term health versus short-term relief.
Michaderm is a great resource to have in your toolbelt if you or your child is dealing with eczema.
The items we found helpful are:
Our little girl has very sensitive skin and does not do well with most lotions we have tried. Natural Hydrating Cream does not bother her skin at all and works really well combating the extreme dryness she has. Her ankles were red and cracked and using this lotion 2x a day cleared it up! We have found that it’s great to use after bathtime to lock in moisture.
