I look after a little girl whos eczema is getting quite bad and her mum is a bit worried. I've heard that Manuka honey is good but how do you use it to treat eczema? ie> do you eat it, or buy it in some sort of cream etc?

just smear it on i would think
but a decent emollient used frequently is more likely to have success
