  • My son hated the eucerin too, and he had an allergy to it. I use the Aveeno lotion for babies and I also use the Aveeno Baby-Soothing Relief Creamy Wash. It is really thick and creamy. It has dramatically helped my son as well as my sisters son. It is a little more expensive but it helps him so much.

  • Before I started using it my son would dig and dig and he was so miserable, and it only took a couple of days and he was soooo much better. I hope it helps with your daughter!!!

  • My dermatologist told me when my DD was a baby to give her a bath in tepid water with oatmeal. You wrap 1 cup of plain ol quaker rolled oats in a cheesecloth and put it under the faucet. After the bath, apply nutraderm lotion without using a towel to dry her, let her air dry. That helped my baby with the itching pretty well.

  • My daughter hates all eczema cream. We use petrolium jelly lotion. She loves it. Its very soothing and keeps her skin moisturized. Good luck :)

  • my son has eczema and hydrocortisone cream helps, also the Aveeno hasnt really helped him, but we do lather him up with the eucerin, but you said your daughter doesnt like that one. but yeah the hytdrocortisone helped clear him up really fast
