Scaly babies...

When Marley was an itty bitty baby she suffered some eczema which the good old steroids sorted out... While the rash and redness went, she was left with dry scaly skin on her sides... We have always used QV soapless wash, tried loads of moisturisers and oils to help, but to no avail... My cousin was using Pinetarsol on her son when they visited in October for his itchy bits and though it smells foul, I thought we should give it a go...

It took a long time to action, but for the past two weeks we have been using it in her daily shower/bath and it WORKS!!! Her scales are gone! She is soft and smooth, just the way she entered the world! It's truly awesome! Now she is cured, we might go back to the QV and see if the scales return... Hopefully they don't, but now I know we have a cure should they return, I am far less stressed about it!

Awesome! Hope it stays that way. You'll have to post a followup...

PS Was reading up on it and it does sound like a wonder treatment for anything itchy related, from eczema to chicken pox.
One lady said the children's hospital recommended it but said to make sure to moisturize afterward.
