What is your experience with coconut oil? Anyone with children who have EHK and using coconut oil on them?

I am an adult and I use coconut oil from time to time. It smells good and it helps a lot with the winter dryness and itching!

Do you use it with other creams? I have an 18 month old daughter with EI and it really helped her shed some very thick skin around her hands and feet. It also seemed to get rid of some ridges of skin that we're forming all over her body. We use it as a base coat, then apply 2 types of moisturizers. It has also helped clear up the odor issue that she had around her neck.

I like to alternate what I am using because I feel like some creams work really great at first and then just stop. I cycle through a few different creams or sometimes I mix some together to make a whole new product.
