As parents, eczema children conditions can be a trying time for all!
However, moms and dads, take heart! I can tell you that there is a
natural way to care for your child's eczema that is fast and effective
and WITHOUT the dangerous side effects of
Moms and Dads ask, "How do I know if my child has eczema?"
In young children, a rash develops most often on the face. However, eczema children conditions can really occur most anywhere such as on the insides of the elbows, the backs of the knees, the hands and the backs of the elbows.
Eczema (also called "atopic dermatitis") is a serious skin disease. Eczema causes dry skin that can itch, get red and crack. Part of the skin might break out in a rash, or the rash might be on the whole body.
Up to 30 percent of children get eczema but is most common in children whose relatives have allergic conditions like asthma or hay fever.
Although the exact cause of eczema children conditions are not known, they may be caused or made worse by the following factors:
1) Soaps, laundry detergents and perfumes (fragrance). Fragrances are very often included in baby products and are strong irritants!
2) Scratchy clothes (like wool) can also irritate the skin.
3) Allergens like pollens, pet hair or dander (dried bits of skin), food, feathers and dust mites. (Dust mites are very tiny, spider-like creatures. They make their homes in mattresses, pillows and rugs. They can only be seen under a microscope.)
4) Low humidity. During cold weather, the heated air inside homes and other buildings can make skin dry and itchy and add to eczema children symptoms.
5) Heat, high humidity and sweating. These can make the itching worse.
6) Certain foods or beverages can cause an allergic reaction in your body.
7) Stressful situations can cause the face and body to get itchy, red and hot.
If you suspect that your child might have a certain allergy to a
food item, do the following: start by dropping a certain food from his
or her diet for a while and keep a journal to record the response the
eczema may have. Then, discontinue any food item triggering the symptoms
of eczema children condition.
I often recommend doing the following for eczema children symptoms:
1) Because laundry soaps can irritate your skin, run your child's clothes through two rinse cycles and try using a milder laundry soap.
2) Wash your child's sheets often in hot water to get rid of dust mites. Use dust-proof covers on pillows, box springs and mattresses.
3) Dress your child in loose clothes made of cotton and other natural materials that "breathe." Wash new clothing before it is worn.
Proper skin care is very important in caring for eczema children conditions!
1) Bathe your child in moderately warm water not more than once a day for less than 10 minutes.
2) Wash your child with our FACE & BODY WASH, a specially formulated mild "non-soap" cleanser , that contains only herbal ingredients that are organically grown and hypo-allergenic.
Vitamin-derived antioxidants from plant sourced ingredients not only make the best ingredients for your "inside", but for your "outside" as well. For instance, vitamin C is essential for collagen formation and helps to maintain the integrity of skin tissue. It is even essential for wound healing and facilitates recovery from burns. A pure and gentle cleanser filled with nutrients will be just right for all skin types, conditions and ages and especially for eczema children conditions.
3) After bathing, gently pat your child's skin dry with a soft towel.
4) Then moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! This is extremely important for eczema children symptoms.
Choose from our FACE & NECK THERACREAM or our HAND & BODY THERACREAM which are specially formulated therapeutic creams that will stop itching, repair skin 7 layers deep , are hypo-allergenic and work well to treat dry skin.
The most effective specially formulated products are plant based, have a very rich emollient level and are loaded with nutrients. They should also be able to handle a range of skin conditions including eczema children symptoms.
Remember, the best moisturizers are also the thickest. As your child's body responds to wholesome foods, your child's skin will respond quite rapidly to natural remedies.

Hi Aim 2 Health, I am attaching before and after pictures of my baby girl who battled with eczema at 4 months of age. We tried several commercial products that promised it would help but didn't. The pediatrician suggested steroids if it got worse but I refused to go that route. In a desperate attempt to find a natural solution, I did a search on google and I happened on your site. I used the Face & Neck TheraCream and noticed within 2-3 days the eczema started to clear up. The first set of before and after pictures is 2 days apart from each other.
Occasionally, she had mild breakouts but as soon as I see a flare up, I immediately apply the cream. The second set of before and after pics was within a couple of hours of a flare up. I am part of a mommy group on FB and whenever someone asks for a solution for eczema, I always recommend your site. Thank you for creating such an amazing product!! Virginia
Here's a picture of my newborn when he was two months old. He had this horrible rash all
over his face and neck.. Nothing I tried worked and I took him to the Doctor. He said it
would go away after a few weeks and it didn't but it got worse.. This bothered me so
badly I would look at my baby and cry.. He just looked miserable... Then when I
purchased the Face & Neck TheraCream and the All Over Face & Body Wash I promise you that in ONLY 2
days his skin had cleared up drastically . He has very sensitive skin and I'm unable
to use any baby products for him because they break him out very badly... But Aim 2 Health has
saved my life!! I googled everything and I spent too much money on different creams,
lotions,gels and nothing worked .. I am a forever customer of your products.. When
I get low I never hesitate to order more.. My whole family uses it.. Aquilla Williams, USA
My 6 month old baby developed a very bad rash on her head and would scratch at it constantly. I tried some steroid cream my doctor prescribed but after 3 days her eczema got worse! I found your website and ordered the FACE & BODY WASH and the HAND & BODY THERACREAM. In just 5 days her eczema was nearly gone!! I can't say enough about your products....thank you!! Salena, New Jersey
We have been battling with my daughters severe eczema for about 2 months. Her
skin from chin down would be so inflamed and irritated she would wake up
screaming and crying. We tried every lotion and cream on the market as well as
hydrocortisone cream. After the steroids discolored and began to thicken her
skin we stopped it and began our search for a more natural remedy! Theracream
Hand and Body cream has been our salvation! After 2 days of use she was sleeping
3-4 hrs at night and is just an all around happier baby! After a week of use her
is rash free and baby smooth again! I am so thankful to have found this product. My husband has also been using this on his face for dermatitis and his skin has cleared fully in 3 days. Much to his dermatologists surprise! We had not seen my daughters smile in two weeks because she was so uncomfortable but now she is all smiles, all the time... Thank you! Whitney, CA
Thank you so much for your wonderful products! After using it for about a month, my 2 year old daughter’s eczema cleared up. I’ve attached before and after pictures. The 1st two are after (obviously), the 2nd 2 are before. We had been trying so many different things for a full year that weren’t working and then we found your products. Thank you so much, again!!! Blessings, Caitlin
I must say that your product works wonders. My 5 month old daughter had eczema since she was 2 months old and I tried so many creams and did not see any results. Also, I applied hydrocortisone but saw that it made it worse! Your website had great information and it helped me to take care of my daughter's eczema better. I used your Face & Neck TheraCream and within a couple of days I started seeing results. Here are the before and after pictures that I took of my daughter. I will recommend your product to my friends and family!!
Thank you, Samera
I was referred to you by a close friend because my 9 month old baby suffered from severe eczema on his chest. It was horrible as he was up all night crying and trying to scratch at it! I used your FACE & BODY WASH and the HAND & BODY THERACREAM and wow...it worked so fast! At first usage, his itching stopped almost immediately and the redness an inflammation began to leave as did his rash. He is a happy baby once again....thank you! Mercedes, Florida
We are really enjoying using your products!! Our son has eczema children symptoms all over his body and the Hand & Body TheraCream is so very helpful. This is an example of how much it helps. The before picture of his hand is taken in the evening on 3/20, and the after picture was taken this morning, 3/22 after only two applications of the Hand & Body TheraCream! I look forward to ordering more products from your company!
Thanks so much, Anita
My daughter was about 7 weeks old when her facial rash really got severe. Doctors recommended everything from hydrocortizone to Aquaphor (The Aquaphor made it worse, and I didn't try the steroids...). The Theracream from Aim 2 Health began to improve the skin's appearance in only 2 days! So glad to find a solution! It's crazy how little interest my doctor showed when I presented the miracle cream at her checkup! I figured he'd want to write that name down! The medical professionals I spoke with all act like skin ailments are a mystery to be endured....I am glad I found a solution on my own!!!! I will continue using the cream forever if I have to! It has also worked wonders on my calloused feet! I like the Face and neck cream and the way it makes my skin feel, too! Thank You! Shawna M., USA
When I took my son to the doctor for his six month exam, he had a rash. I had
been using over the counter antibiotic cream and Aquaphor on the rash, but it
hadn't really helped. The doctor prescribed cortisone. This cleared it up for
a few days, and then it would just stop working. It seemed to come back more
aggressively, and I was told to try anti-fungal cream but I turned to the Internet for
another solution. I stumbled across your website and figured that for less then
$25 it was worth a try. I used My Daughter's Hand & Body TheraCream with each
diaper change and in a few days it had improved greatly. Within 2 weeks he was
virtually clear. I took so many after pictures trying to get a "good one", but
my husband pointed out that every picture just looked like a regular, fat,
little, baby belly because that was what it was. A rash-free, regular, fat,
little, baby belly!! We are still experiencing great results! Thanks so

Hi Aim 2 Health staff especially Nanette...I would like to thank you all for helping me solve my daughter's eczema soreness. My daughter has been having bad eczema only on her face and it is really painful for me to see my little baby going through so much pain. I managed to chance upon you guys as I was researching about the steroid cream my doctor prescribed to my daughter. Imagine the rude shock I had finding out about the side effects of it....and yes steroids only made her skin more sore after each relapse. Finding your website is a MIRACLE for me...! I also recommended your products to my parents a few days back and ordered for them. Will let you know of the outcome. My mum has been having psoriasis for nearly 25 years and I really hope this will be her miracle too after trying hundreds of products. Thank you once again Aim 2 Health! Regards, Nurul
I am so grateful I stumbled upon you guys. A month ago, Cody was diagnosed with a moderate eczema children symptom. The doctor wanted him on hydrocortisone cream. I replied that there was no way I'm putting a 3 month old on steroids. For weeks I tried everything natural that I could find: butters, gels, homeopathic creams, oils....nothing worked. I was getting desperate and my family was getting impatient, when I decided your products were my last attempt. I ordered the Face & Neck TheraCream and Face & Body Wash and put it on twice during the night, hoping and praying. When I woke up, the eczema on his check was halfway gone! My family was stunned and impressed and I was eternally grateful. That was a couple weeks ago; it is now almost gone. I am so pleased with my results, that I am now using it on my own skin, which can get a little dry from time to time. Cody and I will be customers for life! Jessica, USA
Hello, I wasn't sure if your products would work because I feel like I've tried everything! This weekend was the test for sure. It was over 90 degrees here with a 100% humidity. This is usually a big issue for Maddox, he will break out on his face and neck badly. His skin has never looked clearer! We are so impressed and happy with your products!!! You are a life saver to us and our son. From the bottom of my heart I thank you! Nothing is worse for a mom than to watch your baby be uncomfortable or in pain. We love it. Thank you sooooo much!!!! Lindsay, USA
My 7 month old son was suffering with really bad cradle cap which we thought was part of the eczema children symptoms. We had tried T-Gel and Selsun Blue as well as massaging his scalp with oil but to no avail. Your Double Strength TheraCream and Herbal Shampoo Treatment worked so fast and so well to rid him of that horrible cradle cap! We have the Hand & Body TheraCream and that has been working really great on his body. Thank you for your time, information, and of course, fantastic products! Anna Greene, NC
