I basically just switched my foods mainly to anti-inflammatory food. Removing rice is a big thing, I switched to quinoa and have never looked back since. My skin has been under control with constant moisturiser and proper diet.

I have read this article from Thomson Specialist Skin Center about several misconceptions about eczema and here's what I have learned:

1. Eczema is due to impurity of the blood and can definitely be cured
Eczema is a chronic skin condition associated with a defective skin barrier. Eczema is not related to deficiencies in the blood and while most patients will outgrow their eczema, there is no one treatment that can ‘cure’ eczema.

2. Eczema is caused by food
While a food allergy can trigger eczema, it is much less common than believed. Very often, patients or parents think it is food-related because it is more ‘observable’ compared to environmental allergens. In older children, house dust mite is a more likely trigger.

3. Eczema is contagious
Eczema is due to the patient’s skin barrier and its reaction to the environment and the immune system. However, as the eczema rash may look red and progressive, some people may think it is contagious. This is definitely not the case!

4. Eczema is due to a lack of hygiene
Again, due to the appearance of the rash, some people think that eczema is a result of inadequate washing. Eczema is not related to cleanliness and conversely, frequent use of soaps and detergents might even contribute to the increasing prevalence of eczema. Moreover, over-cleaning dries the skin, which aggravates eczema.

For a young child, he may grow out of it by 8/9 years old. Use calamine lotion. Dont use those that are heavily medicated coz it might be a passing phase. You don’t want overdose.

Recently I was introduced a moisturiser which worked miraculously on my daughter whom has suffered from eczema for the last 12 years since she was born.

I have applied different solutions in the past, to the extend I think I have tried every single moisturiser in the pharmacist and also different strengths of cortisones to control the severity of her skin and not let it flare up. None came to a permanent solution until this one that I have used last.

Please feel free to PM me as I’m not sure if I can share the product online due to copyrights. But we can chat over WhatsApp and I can show some of the pictures on the improvements of my daughters eczema.

Hi,
While you are using ointments and creams your existing eczema it is also important to work on its cause as well. It can occur due to problems in the immune system. As well as it is found in families with history of other allergies and asthma.
It is all related to your immune system so consult with a doctor regarding it as well.

Thanks for all of your suggestions on how to resolve my child's eczema problems. Been using calamine lotion moderately and it works! :)
