no i hadn't heard about that, I hope it does help though. I was just reidang up on all this the other day. I have eczema as well as my very young nephew. I'd always been told to use stuff like aquaphor and it's always done a pretty good job, but I was just reidang some articles that said to use crisco. lol yeah crisco, sounds gross and super greasy, but slather the kid in that and massage it into the skin really good and it seemed to clear up peoples/babies eczema really well. Next time I have a break out I'm giving it a try as it's already sitting in my kitchen cabinet, so worth a shot.
