Our doc told us to use crisco too because dd is allergic to coconut (which is what we think causes her eczema- since it is in pretty much all health and beauty products) and peanuts (all nuts are out) it is very hard to find commercial lotion we can use on her. We have also used pure olive oil as lotion. We have one kid with eczema and allergies and one with eczema and no allergies- the one without has the worse eczema.
