This is my secret weapon towards eczema. Aveeno Baby Soothing Relief Moisture Cream. My daughter, Moozles, suffered from eczema from the age of six months until she was almost four. She had these red, inflamed patches of skin all over her body. I continuously went to the GP and the health visitor for advice. The GP prescribed several different creams for moisturisation and for the bath. They barely helped.
When my son, Dubz, was five months old he broke out in eczema. It was worse than when his sister had had it. He was covered in it – his back, chest, arms and legs. He also had one round, red spot on his left cheek. Just like his sister had when she was younger. When Moozles was young, she was diagnosed as having ringworm twice by different GPs. Then they realised it was eczema. When Walker first developed eczema, the GP told me it was ringworm. I told them about Moozles’ eczema but they still wasted two months of my time on various creams. Dubz had to celebrate Christmas looking like he had some contagious disease.
Dubz had an eczema outbreak from October 2012 to April 2013. In April I received some Aveeno Baby cream. I had asked for eczema cream recommendations from friends on FB. I had tried everything suggested, except for the Aveeno Baby Soothing Relief Moisture Cream. I had my mom send me some from The States because I couldn’t find it in the UK. Within about two weeks, Dubz’s eczema had cleared up. I stopped using the cream at that point since my daughter’s eczema had only flared up during the months of October through to April. My mom had also sent me the Aveeno Baby shampoo so that is what I use for Dubz’s baths and hair washes year round.
In October, Dubz’s skin flared up as expected. I got out the Aveeno Baby and it was gone in a couple of days. I moisturise Dubz’s skin most days and he hasn’t had any flare-ups since. I don’t know what else, besides oatmeal, goes in this cream, but it is a godsend.
If you don’t have any relatives in The States, fret not. I found two online UK retailers who sell Aveeno Baby Soothing Relief Moisture Cream.
