Hi, just looking for some suggestions. My dd has mild eczema on her hands and wrists. I have just bought some QV wash for the shower but wondering if anyone can recommend a hand soap/wash.
Also, are there any hand sanitizers or the like that I could use for her?

Subbing...currently have paw paw cream on my hands to try and heal them up after doing cooking and cleaning.

You can use any gentle soap as hand wash. I wouldn't recommend hand sanitizer because they all contain alcohol.

Sorry by gentle soap I mean something like Cetaphil or QV. I probably shouldn't have used the weird soap and said wash. If your washing your hands properly there isn't a need for anti-bacterial ones.

I wouldn't use sanitizer, it would sting and also be very drying.
Maybe you could use your QV stuff as hand wash?
And then just moisturise, a lot. Dermeze ointment has done wonders for my DS.

You can get hand sanitisers that are alcohol free but I would probably go with a pH balanced wash

SPG, my neice had terrible eczema. Everything was tried, creams, washes, topical and oral steroids and Montelukast. The only thing we have found to work is Inner health Plus Eczema Shield.
I work in pharmacy and we have some pretty good feedback about it too.

@CMF I don't use the hand sanitiser that I have in my bag often but it is so handy when you get caught out. Naturally I would not put something on her hands that would sting her, which is why I was asking about one which is suitable for eczema. I know that there are some which are gentler but I don't know which or where to buy them.

When my eczema flares up on my hands I wash them with sorbelene cream not soap as it hurts as for sanitizer I use a product called hands free, it has all natural ingredients and it doesn't burn/sting your hands at all. It's the only one my kids and I use.
