(Ontario , Canada)
My six year old developed itchy bumps on her knees last May. I assumed they were bug bites as we live in Northern Ontario. Come September the bumps and accompanying itch became much worse and could be seen on her elbows, arms and legs. At night she could never sleep through the night.
I heard about Neem oil. I began applying it directly to her bumps each night(the smell is pugnant, but well worth the inconvienience). First the itch went away, one day later; then the redness was visibly gone. By day 6 a definite eradication was evident.
Some secondary infection is still evident (now it's day 7) due to scratching so I will continue to apply neem to the infected area and to the three bumps (whitish heads) that still are on her knee backs. I'm wondering if I can dilute the neem to reduce the smell while the last of the healing takes place? I am very thankful for this website and the information they presented on it.
