I am surprised that, unless I missed it, no one has recommended coconut oil.  Used both topically and internally it has had wonderful results for a lot of people with eczema.

Here are some testimonials I found at one site about coconut oil:

9/18/2007: Liz from Nairobi, Kenya writes: "My 8 month old son has had eczema since he was four months old.  I have tried many prescription creams that did not seem to work or worked for only a few days.  A friend asked me to try coconut oil.  Its worked miracles.  I got results in a day.  There was no itching and the dry patches were gone.  I now make sure to keep a bottle in the house all the time.  I have also noticed that water and soap worsen eczema, so when he has it, I avoid them on the patches and use the oil instead."

8/9/2007: patty (ptrump@vt.edu) from pembroke, virginia writes: "Hi, i wanted to let everyone know i have spent 9 years of my life going to the doctors for skin yeast on my legs, every cream, steroids, soaps , lotions, etc. and pure coconut oil has healed them in 2 weeks! i take 3 capsules a day , plus rub the oil on my legs. it is a wonder drug for yeast. i use it on my face and all over. i am 53 but look 43. it stops the itch -which will drive you insane. try it and good luck!"

5/19/2007: Janet (rik_kemp@hotmail.com) from Morayfield, Queensland writes: "I have suffered from skin ailments all my life. I had heard about coconut oil but it seemed too simple an idea to really work, and I had tried every remedy, scientific and natural, under the sun and nothing ever worked. So after reading all the latest hype about coconut oil I decided "why not?' Well, sometimes I wish wasn't such a sceptic and then I might have tried it years ago. How it works I don't know but after less than a week of applying it twice a day my rash had cleared up, the redness and itching was gone, and has stayed gone despite the fact that I have stopped using my usual prescription anti-inflammatory cream. The kind I use is the extra virgin pure coconut oil made without chemical processes. I'm now taking it orally too."

3/29/2007: Marietta ) from Montpelier, Vermont writes: "Virgin Coconut Oil: My teenage son had raw, red and cracked skin where the ear meets the head. I remembered reading somewhere that VCO cures eczema, so I spread some on the backs of his ears after he showered. Amazingly, the very next day (after only ONE application) they were completely healed; no raw, red, no cracks! We also eat it often, on popcorn, straight off the spoon and in stir-fries. Yum!!!"

8/4/2006: Jay from Chicago, IL writes, "1 TBS daily of oral supplementation has helped by facial eczema and atopic dermatitis.  I have become immediately convinced that Coconut oil is nothing short of a miracle remedy for the skin and immune system. I was suffering from weekly eczema outbreaks on the face, and within 4 days of using 3 tablespoons daily and dabbing it with vitamin E oil, I noticed an almost immediate improvement. The itching and redness stopped, and the inflammation was way down. I would strongly urge ANYONE who suffers from this condition to try it, because in my opinion, there is nothing else like it on the planet."

3/1/2006: Bonnie writes, "It is the only thing that gets rid of my daughter's eczema and mine. In fact mine was really bad when I was pregnant and it was the only relief I found. I used to take primrose oil internally -- that really helped, but it never offered any immediate relief. When she was about 2 months she got a bad flare up on her forehead and it cleared it within days. As a side note lice was going around the school and my boys came home with it. She never got it (I think it was the smell of coconut oil) & they always put their hats on her head."

2/11/2006: Amy from Reeseville, WI writes, "I use coconut oil half and half with butter to make my cookies or if the recipe calls for shortening, I use all coconut oil. It also cleared up eczema for me and my son. You can add it to bath water just a tablespoon or two. It works great."

Just yesterday one of the members of the Yahoo healthy group I moderate told me that for the first time ever, he had found something that worked for his SD (seborrhoeic dermatitis).

I believe there is a support group here at CureZone for coconut oil - you will likely find people there who know much more than I do about it.

I hope this helps.
