eczema

my 4 year old son suffers with eczema. i have been using advantan cream, which works almost instantly, but because it is a cortisoone cream i try and avoid using it on a regular basis. is there a home remedy for eczema.

Paediatrician

Rather than use any treatmnets at this stage,you need to find out what is causing your son's eczema. Please take him to be tested and examined by a paediatric allergist. There are experts in all the main centres in SA.
