Eczema on face & joints of elbowMy 12 year old son has eczema on his face and joints of his elbows mainly. He used to have on back of knees but has been treated with sulphur in the past successfully. Sulphur does not seem to work now. Have also tried graphites, and petroleum. Petroleum initially cleared it all in 3 days but 5-6 days later he started getting severe itching and he scratched him self to bits! What would you suggest? He is vegetarian and I have also taken him off food which have a lot of preservatives in it. He is getting depressed and upset all the time with his condition especially as I keep limiting the food he has. He cann';t go swimming or eat pizza - its so upsetting. Please help - your advice needed urgently.
