Infantile eczema (elbow). Almost healed in 3 weeks.
Same child. Infantile facial eczema
It’s been around 3 weeks after using the wheatgrass extract. I am amazed how strong the skin around his neck area and face has become. He still scratches but not as much as before using your wheatgrass products. He mainly scratches at night when he's hungry or needs a nappy change. Before, he would easily get open wounds and the area starts to weep. He has not had any wounds since we started wheatgrass. His elbows are taking a bit longer to clear up but I believe they will get better soon. The back of his knees are also getting much better. Just to let you know, I used the same products on my 4 year old daughter who has very bad eczema on the back of her knees. She always has open wounds on both legs and screamed whenever I bathe her. I started using the spray on her 2 weeks ago and her skin has improved a lot. Sometimes, almost as if she didn’t have eczema. My husband and I thought we will never find anything that can help our children’s condition get better. Even our friends noticed the improvement.

Dr. Chris Reynolds comments:
This case of infantile eczema demonstrates how the condition can be successfully treated without resorting to using topical steroids (TS) which are drugs that can lead to dependency or addiction and the “Red Skin Syndrome”.
This baby was commenced on these drugs - usually the first step towards dependency in young children and infants - which can eventually lead to chronic "eczema" (which is actually topical steroid addiction). If the child is weaned off the drugs, the skin eventually returns to normal.
Before I began using wheatgrass, I was equally guilty for recommending the topical steroid, hydrocortisone. Thanks to the extract, that is no longer necessary.
Topical steroid treatment can be misleading. Often the rash clears up quickly, but then flares again. Repeated visits to the doctor, and dependence on topical steroids causes the child to become increasingly resistant to treatment, so a stronger topical steroid may be introduced. Unfortunately, all this time, they are gradually thinning the skin (atrophy), reducing its ability to perform its numerous functions such as protecting the body from infection. The more the skin atrophies or thins out, the more difficult the condition is to control, and the topical steroid damaged skin becomes progressively worse.
This is why I use wheatgrass extract on infants and children with eczema and adult patients with topical steroid withdrawal problems. It is a simple, safe way to control eczema outbreaks and ultimately recover the child's skin. (See photographs above.)
No infant or child with a skin condition should be exposed to topical steroids of any kind. It is far better (and safer for the child), to use a natural remedy that does no harm either to the baby’s skin or immune system. Wheatgrass extract has adequately supplied these requirements, and is very safe to use on infant skin.
