    coconut oil is great for softening and healing it and it's completely natural so no worries about chemicals that may exacerbate the problem.  Get it online or in the grocery aisle - look for raw, organic coconut oil.  I use it myself as I have very sensitive skin.  (you can also cook with it which is a bonus, makes great stir fry).

      +1 on coconut oil. I have been putting it on my son's skin for years and he has horrible eczema when I stop using it.

      I use Organic Coconut oil on my own skin, it's beautiful ad a moisturizer, but unfortunately has not improved my little ones skin condition. I am glad it's worked for you though!

    Ganoderma, which is a mushroom. It comes in different product/ forms, including soaps and lotions that is safe for all ages.  Be very careful about who you buy from, as some knock-offs are out there (and add things like steroids!  not cool. not cool at all).

    until the last decade or so olive oil was used as a massage oil for babies in our region. coconut oil was only used for the scalp and nourishment of hair at the time... now there are many kinds of oils that can help.

    Oatmeal bath and witch hazel work to sooth the itch.
