The product you NEED to help your child’s eczema

So both my kids have eczema, but my daughter’s is worse. I remember she would wake up itching her back and arms. She would scratch herself up and it would just break my heart! The kid loved water and taking baths, but it made her skin issues worse! From natural home remedies to expensive products, I have tried so many things, without seeing any real change in my daughter’s eczema. Then I found a product that was the ultimate game changer for her. And I am so excited to share it with you in hopes to help another momma with a kiddo with eczema.

We have used Aveeno sensitive skin care products on her since she was born. My husband has eczema so I chose to use the sensitive skin care line to be more cautious from the beginning. At first, it was working. As she got older she began to have more patches of dry  itchy skin that irritated her as seasons changed. One day, I randomly saw the California Baby body wash & shampoo for eczema and wanted to give it a try. I didn’t have high hopes, but it was more on the pricey side, so I did have some expectation to see results! I have been using it for 5 months now, and let me tell you, it works!! I never recommend a product that I don’t believe in. So I literally waited 5 months. Two things told me it was working:

  1. She wasn’t waking up itching and needing hydrocortisone cream for relief
  2. A few weeks ago, she was at grandma’s and took a bath using the Aveeno sensitive skin body wash and she was up itching again.

If you want to try it out, here is Moriah’s bath time routine. By the way, I only give her a bath every 2 or 3 days, unless she needs it. If she takes a bath 2 days in a row, her skin gets angry!

First, I mix a little bit of turmeric with coconut oil and really rub it into her problem areas and allow it to soak into her skin for atleast 5 minutes. This is honestly the hardest part because Moriah hates feeling slimy and whines the whole time. Turmeric stains everything, so I have to make sure she stays off everything..lol yea, and she is 4, so like I said this part is hard.

Then I give her a bath using the California Baby body wash and shampoo for eczema. As soon as she is done I dab the towel around the dry patches of skin but I don’t really rub all the water away.  Then I lather on aquaphor in those areas.

That’s all. This has been the routine that I have found works best for my daughter. This post is not a sponsored ad and I am not getting paid for promoting any products mentioned.

  1. We’ve been using the California baby lavender body wash and shampoo for Olivia too! It works great, and her curly hair seems to be shinier and maintains the curls better.

  2. We had the same problem for 6 years!
    We went into Lush one fine day and they gave me a sample to try the “dream cream”. I have now switched my daughter to that. At bath time she uses the aveeno lavender body wash and dream cream after drying off. We are so happy!

  3. I know controlling it is best, and glad u found something to help. On those off days that she needs to scratch but not damage her skin, my lil nephew used a baby brush that we tucked into his belt. He usually clawed until it bled for relief. But with the baby brush he got relief without skin damage until he could get the cream on
