I worked in a pharmacy and I swore by the qv, but I think it's different when it's your own, by all means I love QV, (I used to love doing the window display for it and hay fever, cold and flu) anyway.....miss those days sometimes. It's just the scent that I'm not in love with, I would hate for people to think I don't clean my kids.
I use the bath oil, wash and cream. Mostly for the dry skin, the eczema that my girl had on face is completely gone. Thank god.
You have all been a great help.
I was going to try the moo goo/ goats milk but the lavender was a big no. I'll stick to QV. Dermaveen was another option.
The moo goo I used on dd didnt have lavender. I have since changed to qv and rely on diet changes as some foods trigger hers
I also tried oats in a stocking in her bath which helped her skin
I would stick to QV. It's all that is recommended and works on my DS2. We stay away from natural products too generally.
I'm due in May and decided to use either QV bath oil or Dermaveen on bub, obviously I dnt know if bub will have eczema but I have had it on and off since birth. It can be over my face (eye, neck), right palm just horrid! I've done everything to try and get rid of it creams, steroid creams, every natural product under the sun (and I love natural!) however, I react badly to natural products and have found that my eczema will flare up even worse. The only product which has completely rid my eczema completely is Dermaveen (colloidal Oatmeal). So considering I will be bathing bub I will be sticking to Dermaveen or QV bath oil as that wasn't too bad.
QV is by far the best and I speak from over 30 years experience in trying absolutely every cream, lotion and potion under the sun. The wash and cream are the only things I'll use. Natural products are horrendous on my skin. The strong scents and perfumes are a killer. Out of three children only my youngest is sensitive and QV is perfect for him. To get the nice smelling stuff you have to sacrifice the skin and put up with flare ups. Not worth it for me! I've been hospitalised because of my eczema as well as placed on immunosuppressant drugs. Nasty stuff 😫
