Known for its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, coconut oil has always proven its effectiveness as a natural remedy for various skin diseases. With its ability to hydrate dry skin, it also works effectively in treating eczema on infants.
Research conducted by the International Journal of Dermatology states that coconut oil is “gentle enough” to use. It can treat the inflamed area on an infant’s skin. For best results, use the coconut oil daily – preferably 3-5 times a day and before going to sleep.
