After a month plus of testing neem on Evan's left side, we determined that it did not make a huge difference. We were using a lotion with neem extracts and a bit of neem oil on his bod and a salve with neem oil on his foot and hand. It did not have any negative effect. I would use the salve again in the future for a break from aquaphor. Our babe, one year old Evan has palmar plantar EHK.
The aroma of neem is defintely distinctive. If Evan was school-aged I would not apply it before school. Feel free to e-mail me privately if you would like the name of the on-line company where I ordered the products (firstname.lastname@example.org)
We are currently testing a natural neem soap and similarly, it doesn't seem to have a negative or positive effect.
Neem is supposedly anti-itch, anti-fungal and anti-imflammatory (spelling?). I will definitely try neem products again when Evan is old enough to talk. [img]http://www.ichthyosis.com/ubb/smile.gif
