-Establishing The Right Types Of Creams, Lotions, Bath Products & Pain Relievers For Children With Eczema-
It has been a very emotional rollar coaster trying to find products and non fragrance items that honestly work and make a differnce when it comes to Eczema. My daughter started having bad patchs on Eczema when she was only 3 months old. Having a twin sister with no skin problems made no sence to me. I took My daughter into the Dr.s office only to be told she is to young to reallyuse any medication to help her. With that being said the only advice I was left with was to wrap her body in crisco oil and give her steroids. My daughter has been diagnosed with Severe Eczema.. which most people mistake and believe it to be severe burns. Its Not…
This Is Her Legs At 6 Months Old… Her Back At Almost 1 Yr Old Her Legs At Almost 2 Yrs Old
With lots of endless attempts and countless dollars, I have finally been able to manage a stable list of things that really do help her with the rash/pain! Try some of these ideas for starters and i guarentee relief!
- Aquaphor-keeps the skin moistened (can be found in almost any drug store-Rite Aide/Wal-Mart)
- Aveeno Daily Moisturizing cream (at least use 3 times a day)
- Aveeno Soothing Bath Treatment ( Its a bath treatment made of 100% Pure natural Colloidal Oatmeal)
- Aveeno Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Cream
- Grandmas Rash Remedy Lotion, With A Powerful Fast Acting Itch Relief! 100% Normal 100% Organic..
These you will find, help with the itch, surface burn, hives & even sunburn on the affected area! As for the Pain and constant burning.. unfortunatly the safest and most effective products for a child to use are still
- TYLENOL CHILDRENS PAIN RELIEVER
- CHILDREN IBPROFEN (Motrin)
- NAPROXYN- Also Known As Aleve (ASK DOCTOR BEFORE USING)
DO NOT use ASPRIN for pain. Asprin has been linked to a rare but deadly condition called Reyes Syndrome.
AVOID excessive hot and cold weather.When I was first told this by her Dermotologist, I thought “well when can she go outside?” He told me to avoid Humid weather, Freezing Weather (Snow), and temperatures over 105 F. He also advised for me to keep her away from Grass.. lots of dirt, and take in sunlight at least 4 times a week for an hour at a time! It WILL get better! Trust in yourself as a Parent/Guardian/Friend/Family Member! You know whats right/wrong for your child!
Try to find everything 100% Cotton. Sheets, Clothes, & Socks. If they have it on their feet as well, be careful of the shoes/sandals you choose. Try to stay away from the rubber maid, plastic and prickly strapped ones. Tennis Shoes are really the best thing for their feet. I know thats a drag for the summer time.. but i found a really cute pair that are perfect for her feet and still look like sandals! Hope all this Helps!
