hi melon. no i haven't heard of this one before, but i've heard of sea salt and oatmeal, which i tried and just stuck with the oatmeal.
I remember when we went away to south wales and ds went into the sea. The skin improvement was amazing, and thought i'd give sea salt ago. I bought it from holland and barrat, but to be honest it wasn't the same thing.
I'll read this thread with interest. I'm sure someone will post soon.
i used unrefined sea salt from the local health food shop, depending on depth of bath and where the eczema is located i put 1/2 to a full bag in and porridge oats in a sock though you can buy wheatgerm aswell. i would exercise caution at the beginning with the amount of salt as it may sting depending on severity of eczema etc.. we used no shampoo or soap during this time and when it was getting better used tiny amount of green people baby wash just to wash his hair. used weleda baby chamomile oil to moisturise. also used lanolin free sk cream recommended by susan clark 'what really works for kids' and sunday times columnist. home made by a lady called margaret evans.it had dramatic results after applying it, you keep it in the fridge. will find the tel. number if interested or you could google to see if there is a website. not sure whether it was the combination of these things or one that actually worked - also homeopath gave sulphur 200 and pustilla 200 during this time. i have only recently dipped my toe in the alternative treatments as i'd read some worrying long term side affects about the steriod creams
