    The Arbonne Baby Care range is great for sensitive skin and eczema. I use it on DD and love it. It's vegan, botanically based and no testing on animals.

    QV bath oil, wash and Dermeeze Ointment moisturising twice a day keeps ds's at bay!

    Interesting that most of us eczema-mummy's have eventually found QV to work best!

    My goodness, we went to hell and back while trying every lotion and potion under the sun but hands down, the best combo we've found that works is....

    1- Prevention, prevention, prevention!
    2- All soaps, face/bum wipes with fragrance and "white" creams are our enemy
    3- QV! Bath Oil in the bath every night and then lather with QV 'Intensive Body Moisturiser for extremely dry skin' straight afterwards. There is a QV "cream" which is a dud but the "Intensive" body moisturiser which is not a white cream but instead looks like cold fat or lard has changed our lives. Bubhub is not letting me post a pic of it Not all chemists sell the good one but we get ours at Chemist Warehouse if you live near one of those?
    4- At the first sign of a flare up, we use a little bit of 'Advantan-Fatty Ointment' straight after the bath, let it soak in for a minute or so then the good QV on top. If she's really bad we'll put it on lightly during the day too. The Advantan also has the appearance of cold fat or lard and is a miracle cream which works wonders almost straight away. There are different types of Advantan's but the 'Fatty Ointment' works the best for my daughter.
    5- Avoid "rough" clothing/material. I'm always in the lookout for smooth singlets as the ribbed ones chafe a bit to much. Some tags have to be cut off too. I also run my hand along the inside of any decorative stuff on any shirts/clothes I want to buy for my daughter to see if there is anything on the inside which will rub and cause a flare up from friction. Wool and knitted clothing is non-existent in my daughters wardrobe and most stockings make her flare-up behind her knees
    6- Over heating her will usually end up with her having a flare-up which sucked as she was a summer baby and I wanted to baby-wear her...too hot in Queensland Shopping centres were ok with the air-con on though
    7- I'm not sure if this helped or not as we made this change at the same time as discovering QV but we also only ever wash her clothes/blankets in a fragrance-free sensitive laundry detergent (Aware) with no softener added.

    Gah, I sure wish someone had told me all of this when my dd was a newborn and the poor thing was in ***agony*** not being able to scratch herself! She must have felt like she was living in a torture-chamber having to just lie there itching all over but not being able to do anything about it....makes me sick to my stomach just thinking about it! Her eyes used to roll in her head when I was massaging (the wrong/ useless) different creams into her skin as her itchy-skin was finally being itched She's 2 now and rarely even needs the Advantan as we're super diligent with her QV preventative measures It's (eczema) always lurking though as it only took one time of my MIL ignoring our instructions and going ahead with a bubble-bath while baby-sitting for her to have a bad flare-up just a few weeks ago! :[
    Good luck in finding your perfect combo!

    I agree, my DS was given a bath by relatives and the flare up lasted weeks. Some people just don't get how debilitating eczema can be. Our paediatrician recommended QV as the best too. She was happy for us to continue with Dermaveen until we finished it but I'm going out today to buy what you've suggested. Your DD sounds similar to my DS. Prevention is key!

    Thanks so much for all this info. It is a great help with something a knew so little about. My little has not got it too bad but it is a real annoyance on certain places on his body.
    I'm going to give your advice a go.

    Yay, I can post pics again. This is the good QV I mentioned....the one that doesn't work as much for us says "cream" where this one says "Body Moisturiser"

    Best thing is using bath oil and any soap free perfume free wash I use alpha kerri cream wash and a health store manuka bath baby oil together my son 8 months had it covering badly over his torso and back used also a strong cortisone cream prescribed to start with now alpha kerri cream not lotion it's not thick enough or as protective I do find though it flares up when i moisturise too much as the skin can't breath as well and not dressing him too much so his body temp doesn't rise too high this cleared up within 4 days and try not to bath more then once a day this can strip the ph off the skin even water is drying ppl think it's hydrating but it's reverse to the inside of the body but it's best to wash with just water then use soap but.
    Another good tip Dnt fully dry the skin leave it a bit moist and only pat this will allow better absorption into the skin.

    Once u find something that works stick with it I say.
