I thought it would be greasy and slippery. But when we were desperate, the eczema
, dry, flakes just soaked it right up. It didn't cure
the problem, but made it 90% better I'd say. It was still pink, but no longer flaky and dry. and I quit using soap on my little guy in the baths too. Just a washcloth. The soap seemed to make it worse. But in the end, we found out milk was to blame for his eczema.
