Does coconut oil give you relief?
November 5, 2020
coconut oil is great. I use it on my skin and hair before showers.

I have horrible itching and coconut oil rubbed in well helps; if still itches I use bit of menthol; if still itches I add a 4% lidocaine. That has taken care of it so far.

My 1 year old daughter suffers from eczema since 5mths of age and we on and off use coconut oil but it only temporarily moisturizes the skin. It also doesn't help relieve her itching. We have tried so many treatments but nothing is working to relieve the dryness or itching . If anyone has any treatment that has been helpful please share. Thank you.

My son had eczema and coconut oil was a great relief. He has scratching his skin off and wearing socks on his hands. The worst was after a bath or summer heat. He was prescribed medicated ointments. We started by putting on coconut oil Immediately after bath then aquaphor. This reduced the flare ups. Now we use either/both coconut oil or body butter with aquaphor.
