The search for an Aquaphor alternative – Part II Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil Results! In my previous post, I was trying unrefined Coconut Oil as an Aquaphor alternative. I was very excited and a little skeptical, yet hopeful. We had been using Aquaphor and have gotten use to it’s thickness and consistency. Therefore switching to coconut oil has been a little different. *Important Disclaimer: Before apply new creams over the entire body, test a small area to see if the skin reacts. I started to use Coconut Oil on December 14. I took a short break from it over the holiday break as I was a little frustrated that it wasn’t Read More

Even though this is a peanut free facility, I would not able to drop her Read More

Seeing eczema for the first time, 3 times

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of interviewing Althea, a wife and a mom to three fabulous children: Elgrie IV (Age 4), Klarc (Age 2), and Esau (Age 3 mos.). I thought it would be great speak to a mom who is figuring out the world of eczema, one day at a time as we are! When we began our interview, Althea had never heard of ScratchMeNots, but has been an avid user since she’s found out about them. Take a moment to read how eczema introduced itself to Althea’s family during our chat. A dermatologist told me that Read More
