Hi there does anyone know or used any products for their babies ezcema, I am using a few differant products at the moment but still havent found the best one!
my baby has pretty sensitive skin and certain products I used would leave dry patches on her skin. I've found the QV range to be very gentle on my baby's skin. I use the cleanser and moisturiser and haven't had any reactions from these products.
This is tricky. My third sun had chronic raw weeping eczema all over his body. Topical treatments work (calendular ointment is good), but the inside has to be treated too. Allergies are a big contributor. If you're open to it, take your bub to a naturopath. Flaxseed oil is essential for providing moisture to the skin from the inside. Good luck!
My daughter is now 10 and she has suffered from eczema, asthma and allergies. I have experiemented a lot and have found Graham's Natural Alternative products really, really good for her skin. In fact, the only shampoo and conditioner she can use is Graham's and you can buy it over the net straight from their website. Very quick delivery. But you can get it at chemists too. They have quite a few different products for eczema prone children. We love it - it really is gentle.
Thanks so much for your advice girls, I will try out some of your suggestions.
Have you tried medi honey....my son had a mild case of eczema & found this to help :)
I've used everything under the sun!
Nothing acually gets rid of it (bar cortisone creams), just reduces the itch and flakiness.
Go for thicker creams, rather than lotions as they keep the skin more hydrated.
I also used the medihoney and it offers some relief. Gaia skin naturals bath wash was the best bath wash for us, and QV cream ws good in conjunction with Gaia thick lotion (purple logo not the thin pink one), plus aromababy nappy rash cream, used all over the body is great.
Also calundula oil (straight oil) for massage time is very anti-inflamatory and smells lovely.
Both my 1 year old Daughter and I have eczema, we use most of the qv range when it comes to washing and moisturising however we have both gone to doctors due to eczema and were prescibed ointments and told to purchase sorbolene cream to use nightly.
yes I use medihoney and it works great!
1 cup of bi-carb soda with 1-3 drops of lavender essential oil in the bath or break open the porridge and put it in a cloth and squeeze it into the bath, very soothing & anti- inflamatory with the bi-carb. also as fancypants suggested calendula oil is one of the best products, you can add 2-5 drops lavender to 100ml too and it may help.
i've suffered extremely savere all my life.
i SWEAR by sorbelene... no alcohol, no colours, no smells. pure and simple
olive oil works well, olive oil in the bath.
i suggest don't start using steroid creams until your child is much much older, your skin gets so imune to them and you have to get stonger ones.
ALPHA KERRY lotions and bath oils. myself and my brother both got great results from the stuff.
try and cut out as much sugar, colours and preservatives as possible. I do and it makes the biggest difference. i know how hard it is when they are a child and all the other kids to all the good stuff.
at this stage i have found the miracle cure for my bubba's eczema. I made it at home but it's pretty simple. shea butter, almond oil and a couple of drops of lavender, overnight the redness and patch size almost halved. i've still cut bread out of his diet so i'm thinking this has helped too.
Glad to hear it is getting better, you should take him for a coeliacs test at the doc's. Your homemade cure sounds great.
I use GAIA products for my bubby. Shampoo, body wash and moisturiser. He gets rare breakouts of eczema that I need to treat with prescribed creams/ointments which I keep for these occasions. Moisturising is the key I think. There is a non-steroid cream called Elidel on the market and it is very effective. My dermatologist prescribed it for me to use. She also gave me Advantan which is a mild steroid and to be used carefully but is safe under correct instruction. I tried numerous wash/bathing products and GAIA is fantastic for us. Consider your washing detergent/powder too. I use Dynamo front loader and it suits my skin so I'm guessing my bub's skin too. Other washing powders trigger eczema for me.
I used Sorbolene and put a few drops of olive oil in it.... it worked a treat. I noticed my daughter got exzema from different fabrics she wore also..........
Both my boys have had Eczema as babies and we use Lucas' Papaw Ointment which you can buy at the chemist, it is great for calming the red itchiness down. I use it in conjunction with Sorbolene which in summer is a necessity in our household. Another little tip is to put a few drops of baby oil in your bath water, it really helps moisturise the skin.
well one week after bub turned 1 his face almost completely cleared up, then his couple of body patches the 2nd week after.
i've decided to use the cortisone cream (not entirely happy about it), but there's just that bit that would flare up and go again so he's been using it now for 3 days and as of tonight i can stop and he's eczema free................................for the moment.
P75, my nephew has similar problem with excema, L'Occitane's mum & baby butter helps. If I remember correctly is a mix of shea butter, almond oil, and a couple of other things. Perhaps if you google it you can concoct similar things yourself with your own stash of natural stuffs?
QV is the best
my duaghter aged 4 has had ezema since she was a baby and we only just now found a product that really works great its goats milk soap and body washes its the best thing we have ever used
My 8 month old son also suffers from ezcema - all over his body with the worst of it on his face (chin, cheeks and neck). It has been infected a few times as recently as last weekend. I have tried every cream and remedy under the sun.
The best moisturisers to use - recommended by the Dermatologist and GP - Hydraderm (cream based) or Dermeze (looks like vasoline).
The one thing that worked an absolute miracle is the cream the Dermatologist prescribed - Advantan Fatty Ointment. I know some people don't like using these types of creams but sometimes you have to. My Dermatologist said that it is safe to use - we aren't using it for prolonged periods of time. We are currently using it twice a day (I don't use heaps of it) for the next two weeks then once a day until we see him next. I can't tell you the difference it made literally overnight - amazing.
I have found it very frustrating as every gp will tell you something different on how to treat it. I would recommend going to a Dermatologist.
Dermeze is by far the best non-drug treatment and preventative for eczema.
I use it for my kids when they have flair ups. When my son was a baby I would put it on him before taking him to the indoor pool. I just had to have a rashy swim Teeshirt on him so he didn't slip out of my hands.
It is like a Vaseline in look and consistency. Also made my hands super smooth.
Try Dermeze before getting cortisone from the GP.
Isn't Demeze in a bath wash form as well.
Try "Hope's Relief" moisturising cream, which you can get from most chemists. It does wonders for my daughter's excema
stay away from cortisones they are so so so bad. they seem to get rid of it but they just internalise the problem and it will always come back...plus you get immune to it and need a stronger dose before long...not to mention all the terrible side effects....
stick to the natural stuff, they normally work better and actually treat the problem rather than masking it.
try the website www.earthclinic.com/Remedies/acvinegar.html ...many people there have had success with apple cidar vinegar...ive been reading all there success stories and am about to try it for myself...Ive suffered from eczema all my life and have tried just about every cream, lotion, ointment...some have helped more than others and the ones that have are always the natural alternatives like medihoney or hopes relief or things that have lavendar oil, calendula or other natural anti-inflammatories. no nasty chemicals!! p.s. pinetarsol or anything with coal tar is actually not the best thing to use, it is another one of those products that are said to internalise the problem...going to a naturopath rather than a doctor is the best idea because they address the problem from the inside out...I find doctors are no help because they suggest or prescribe things that in the long run are harmful for your skin (or your childs) hope this helps someone :) p.s. If anyone wants to know of a good naturopath in Melbourne let me know ...
I have a baby with Ezcema and I put a handful of rolled oats in a stocking and put it in the bath with baby, has worked a dream for us and her skin.
Skin Physics Oxygen C Hydrating Velvet Mask is part of the Oxygen C range and a great place to start exploring this range.
This was my first ever CC cream and I have not been left disappointed!
Its a great sunscreen for beach or heavy sun exposure did not get burn or feel i have to re apply every 2 hours but not good for everyday use does not work well with makeup.
