Salty Ice Cream

How my kid thinks about the world is creative and beautiful.
She gets eczema sometimes.  Here is her observation, as we made home made ice cream tonight ( I know it is October).  With her elbows on the counter she said:

Ice cream has salt in it?  OH!  Salt is very very good for you.  Salt is very very good for eczema!

We have given her salt bathes to soothe her burning skin.  I like the way she thinks but I still asked her:

Do you want me to slather you with the ice cream?

    My boy has eczema a lot. We have not tried the salt baths before. Do you use the Epson type salt?

  2. I use Epson, or just salt. I don't know if it works. If you use too much it stings, but a lot of stuff out there stings.
    I don't recommend ice cream as a remedy though, that is for sure.

  3. I really enjoy your blog posts. Thanks for writing. Your humor is fun to read!
