View Full Version : Sunscreen
My DS who is 16 months has eczema on his legs mainly - not sure why or how but we continue to try to treat it - it is manageable but today i had to put sunscreen on him and now his arms have broken out.
IT was a sunscreen for sensitive baby skin too!! anyone out there know a good one for eczema prone toddlers?
I just bought some sunscreen for my son over the weekend, and it worked really well, he is prone to eczma too.....
Anyway it is called "UV Natural Baby", it was $11.95 for a small tube but is thick & spreads, and cos it is all natyral they are less likely to have a reaction to it....
You can buy it from the chemist.....most of those ones that say for sensitive skin still contain a lot of chemicals etc that will still react with your childs skin...
The only thing is that this sunscreen smells like playdough.......I think it only contain zinc by memory, which I was told is best to use for kids with eczma.....
Only buy the small tube first to see how he reacts as the big tube is $20.......
hope this helped.....
The one subi speaks of is really good but there is the sunsense ultra sensitive too.
All are roolly expensive - of course :rolleyes:
We've tried a lot of sunscreens with our daughter - each affecting her greatly until we tried Shiseido 30+ Gentle lotion for sensitive skin and babies. Of course it is frightfully expensive ($40 for 100ml) but on the plus side she's had no reactions to it and even better it rubs in with one wipe - heaven on a toddler that usually runs away with sunscreen half rubbed in. Hope this helps.
i have tried a lot too and my kids and i broke out- now we are on the cheapest stuff (ALDI sensitive/kids sunscreen 30+) and ??!!!!!!!!!!!! nothing ALL fine and a big thing is 4 dollars....:smiliedance:
The only one we have found works for us is the Clarins Kid 30+ Sunscreen, $35 a tube but lasts forever and no break out afterwards.
the sunsense ultra sensitive too. :rolleyes:
I recently bought this one and am happy with it...the clarin suncream sounds good too...anything where ' a little goes a long way' is favourable
