Natural remedies?

I need to find a remedy for rash on a toddler. Have tried the doctor’s stuff and has not worked. So if you have any idea’s on how I can make some kind of a cream I would greatly appreciate it. I would like to natural herbs of course. Thank you for your help.
It is my friends son. They have been using the same detergent since he was born. It is spots here and there threw out the body and it itches really bad. I know some about herbalism but I am having a hard time finding a reciepe for what I need. I just hate seeing a 1 yr old all itchy. Thanks for the help

  • Burt’s has got a whole all-natural baby care line. I’ve heard it’s excellent. You should be able to find it at your local health food store.

  • A good oatmeal bath never hurt… Good luck..

  • Have you tried tea tree and aloe lotions together. They both heal skin nicely.

  • Corn starch should help. You need to find what is causing the rash. It may be an allergic reaction to something and that is why the meds don’t seem to be working. I just had to change detergents as I had a rash that would not go away. Took me a while to figure out it was the detergent.

  • You can try something obvious. Preparation H.

    It has witchhazel, and nothing to do with witches. It’s an old remedy for rashes on bottoms.

    Please describe the rash.

  • There’s a product called "Abolene", which is an application "skin cleanser and moisturizer." Generally found in section where Cetaphil and other skin sensisitve lotions are shelved. It was effective on our 8 year old son’s unexplainable and seemingly untreatable skin rashes. Applied to the exposed areas daily cleared the rashes. Occasionally the rashes reappear, after swimming. The Abolene works.

  • Check this web site. They have a good natural products. My daughter use to have a rash and this product has helped.

    Sneak a child’s multivtamin into the toddler’s food. Can’t hurt; may help! Good luck!

  • neo-liberal ultra conservative

    I would highly recommend visiting a Homeopath in your area. All of the above posts do not take into account the "why" of the rash. They are only treating the symptom. There is an underlying weakness that needs to be addressed. Email me privately and I may know someone in your area.

    What Is Eczema?

    Eczema, (also known as atopic dermatitis in its extreme form), is an itchy rash that occurs on the hands, arms, legs, and neck, but can cover the entire body in extreme cases. Atopic dermatitis is frequently caused by allergens. Prolonged exposure to the allergens may aggravate the itchy rash and cause additional discomfort.

    Eczema – Atopic Dermatitis

    Atopic dermatitis is the most severe and chronic type of eczema. This disorder produces skin inflammation and interferes with the skin’s ability to retain adequate moisture. Even though it looks like it is, atopic dermatitis is not contagious.

    It can occur at any age, but is most prevalent in infants to young adults. It is a hereditary condition which affects approximately ten percent of infants and three percent of the overall population of the United States, according to the American Academy of Dermatology.

    There are typically three stages in eczema – atopic dermatitis, each with fairly distinctive features.

    The first infant stage, appears between birth and the age of two;

    The second childhood stage appears between the ages of two and 12; and

    The third adult stage appears from the age of 12 and up.

    This condition, sixty percent of the time, develops in the first year of life, but rarely appears during the first two months. In babies, the rash usually starts on the face and places that are easy to scratch and rub, like the elbows and knees.

    Eighty-five percent of the time it develops before the age of five. In older children, atopic dermatitis commonly appears in the creases of the body — eyelids, neck, behind the ears, at the elbows, and behind the knees.

    Often the tendency to have atopic dermatitis fades during childhood, but it can cause a life-long tendency to have dry skin that is easily irritated. The face and hands are more likely to be affected in adults.

    Even though certain ages have areas that are most commonly affected, atopic dermatitis can occur anywhere on the body.

    Seventy-five percent of those who have eczema also have other allergic disorders. Approximately 30 percent have asthma, and up to 60 percent experience hayfever. This is often referred to as the atopic triad.

    Many workers are at an increased risk for allergic dermatitis because they are exposed to many known allergens and irritants.

    Causes

    People with atopic dermatitis, asthma or hay fever are born with too many reactive inflammatory cells in the skin. When something triggers them, the over-reactive inflammatory cells don’t "turn off" as they should.

    Many factors play a part in atopic dermatitis. The people afflicted can have flare-ups when their skin comes in contact with allergens, as well as irritants. Cosmetics, dry skin, emotional stress, heat, excessive sweating, fabrics (such as wool and polyester), and infections can trigger an attack.

    Can Transfer Factor assist to overcome this skin reaction?

    Transfer factors are made up of three separate fractions that balance the immune system for a more effective immune response. The three fractions are the INDUCER, ANTIGEN SPECIFIC and SUPPRESSOR fractions. The inducer fraction provides a basic training to get the immune system into shape. The antigen specific fraction functions like a set of “wanted” posters that help identify critical features of the infectious enemy. Finally, the suppressor fraction is able to recognize the enemy’s defeat and then calm the immune system back to a normal level.

    Unlike most immune supplements that only provide building blocks for proper immune function, transfer factors also provide immune intelligence. It is the immune information and education that helps to focus the immune system, keeping it on task and effective.

    Transfer Factors make up a highly concentrated, immune messaging system – designed by nature – to transfer critical immune programming from one individual to another. It is important to recognise that Transfer Factors are non-species specific. This means that their immune power is universally beneficial to all humans and animals that are mammals.

    In conclusion, Transfer Factors BALANCE the immune system through boosting it, and controlling it.
