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?

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.
