Challenge: Topical or Internal?

As I’ve been researching various skin issues that attack babies, toddlers and adults. I’ve come to this same question over and over again: Topical or Internal? America has been indirectly trained to follow this vicious cycle: Ailment —> Doctor’s appointment —> Prescription (cream or pills) = Problem solved….temporarily Most likely the ailment comes back and we begin the cycle all over again.  It’s no secret that the healthcare industry gives a lot of prescriptions to handle the symptoms instead of getting to the root of the problem.

It’s a crazy world of eczema and moms of itchy babies must stick together! When my daughter was younger, around 2 months old, she was diagnosed with eczema. I had NO idea what journey we were about to walk down. As I read up on eczema, what it was and what triggered it, I was surprised to find out that there are so many unanswered questions! So many ‘if- then’ statements. While I’m not expert or doctor on Read More
