Yes!! We’ve also found that the combo of CeraVe and Aquaphor to be most effective by far, with CeraVe being our primary base (we’ve learned to keep jars of it in every room in our house for constant applications). Will have to throw coconut oil into the mix and see how that goes, too!
Both of my kids had bad eczema as babies through the toddler years. I used to slather on Aquaphor after a bath using sensitive Dove soap when their skin was still wet. But unfortunately they ended up needing prescriptions from the dermatologist. I used EpiCeram which helped control the itch and dry patches. I would have tried coconut oil if I realized that could have helped. Their skin eventually cleared up beautifully and now I use regular unscented lotion - they are 9 and 7 years old now.
I’ve got to try this! My poor little guy has terrible eczema, and it has been pretty much impossible to clear up over this long winter. Constantly applying Aquaphor and Cerave cream in rotation has worked best so far, but I’ll have to see what coconut oil does!
Coconut oil is moisturizing, nourishing, and so versatile and can certainly be used to help with eczema flare ups.
