    Default Eczema

    Hi Everyone

    My 1 year old has just started experiencing mild to moderate eczema on his torso and arms.

    Does anyone have recommendations on the best creams/soaps and routines to use to help?

    Thanks

    My sister and SS both use Cetaphil Restoraderm body wash for their eczema. They both have moderate cases of it. There's a moisturiser as well. It's a tough time of year for eczema suffers as the cold dry weather tends to make it flare up.

    DH takes a different approach. Much to my horror he uses my Clarins facial moisturiser on his eczema, expensive solution but it seems to work. His outbreaks are relatively infrequent though.

    My almost 3 year old suffers from eczema also, and I've tried almost everything on her with no result.
    We were then put onto a cream by the brand 'moogoo' which you can get from health stores or from their website.All natural ingredients and has worked a treat so far!!

    We are currently on qv cream and find that works really well. We have also tried moo goo which worked for a while and cetaphil which didnt do anything.
    We also had to change her diet as well, cut back on dairy and no strawberries as that is a big trigger

    Last week we saw a paediatrician whose expertise is in infant eczema.

    DS eczema has improved out of sight in 7 days. He is a different boy!

    Our eczema plan is this;

    - moisturise at least twice a day all over with Dermaveen (this is used by RCH)
    - use advantan fatty for flare ups
    - for minor flare ups use 1% steroid
    - bleach baths for any suspected staph infections
    - QV for all baths and no soap - ever

    prevention is the most important thing so moisturise often and treat flare ups with a steroid ASAP.

    We were also advised to steer clear of all natural products to reduce the risk of allergy.

    I use moogoo on DS' s eczema. Seems to work for the most part. When it gets really bad I will use a steroid cream to help clear it up.

    Dd1 has eczema and these things work for her:
    -QV in the bath
    -moisturise with sorbolene cream after bath
    -sudocrem if it's a small, mild patch
    -dermaid for anything more

    Goats milk soap is good, but a little drying on the skin.
    I actually reviewed goats milk body wash and moisturiser on here and after a few weeks she started reacting to the moisturiser. The body wash was nice though and didn't cause any reactions.

    I reviewed this too. It was a pure coincidence that his skin didn't react when I used it so my review is inaccurate as a few weeks after we had the worst flare up he'd ever had.

    She flared up two days later. I've actually been meaning to go back and write that she reacted to it. It was the worst flare up she has had too.

    Was it the body wash or moisturiser for you?

    Me too because my review was really positive. I wouldn't recommend it now.
