I have heard of this also, but haven’t tried it consistently. My daughter who struggles with eczema is 5 also, and has struggled off and on since she was a baby. Probably about 2 1/2 to 3 years ago, I decided to try the hazelwood necklaces from http:// , and they have made a world of difference for her! She wears them constantly and I usually have to buy a new one about once a year. Many types of eczema are caused by too much acid in the body and the hazelwood on this necklace absorbs acid from the body. It took a few weeks of wearing the necklace to start working, but my daughter has only had probably two mild breakouts since then, and I think it was when a necklace started to lose it’s effectiveness and needed to be replaced.
I developed severe itching randomly late in my third trimester. The more I scratched an itch, the worse the itch got and a rash would break out. I told my OBGYN about this… and he just blamed it on pregnancy hormones and said it would go away after having my baby. I am now 5 weeks postpartum, and the itching as not stopped. Sometimes its worse. Thanks so much for posting this! I had a sneaking suspicion that it could be eczema but didn’t know if the pregnancy could have caused it or how common it was. Ive only been able to narrow my triggers down to getting hot and sweaty.
