    Default Frangrance free, sensitive washing powder suggestions please...

    Hi - my DS has eczema and it's not improving. We are constantly applying moisturizer, stigmacort on occasion, dermalex. It goes and then comes back.

    The dog lives outside and we are very aware of dust where DS is.

    It's killing me watching him scratch.

    I'm currently using Purity Sensitive washing liquid - I'd like to try something different to see if this makes a diffference, particularly fragrance free...

    Please let me know if you've used anything which has worked for eczema or is fragrance free...

    I'm also interested in hearing about soap nuts...

    Thanks

    Hi Babyla

    I have eczema and can only use Aware brand washing powder (sensitive variety).

    The box lasts forever which is a bonus!

    Also, have you heard of products called MooGoo? I use one of the moisturisers and it fixes flare ups in a couple of days.

    Goodluck!

    ETA I also have to be careful with body wash and hand soap. Body Wash I use either Pinetarsol or Sebamed.

    Thanks! I have heard of moogoo - I'll grab some tomorrow. We've been using QV oil for baths but maybe we'll try something else...

    We use eco store washing powder. Woollies sells it but coles doesnt. Ive noticed a huge difference with both dd and dh's skin. And on the odd occasion I have bought a different brand, dh starts itching! So I know the washing powder makes a difference.

    I love my MooGoo, always carry it in my handbag

    I hope you find something that helps your little man, I feel for him!

    I clean using mainly bicarb and vinegar also to keep chemicals to a minimum, and use a steam mop.

    Subbing. DD has dryish skin (like me) and DP has Ezcema. So we always washing things in fragrance free, sensitive skin products. DP seems to react to anything with a slight fragrance to it.
