the best lotion for dry red skin

on my daughter's face, she's 2. looks like eczema but it doesnt itch. becomes more irrtated when wet. i think it's because of the wind but daddy thinks otherwise. we are stuck on a lotion....

  • we had tried everything. then i found this balm type thing from johnson and johnson. usually we don't use that brand but we tried it. it worked wonders! goes on just like chapstick is all natural and dries rather quickly. no burning or tears. cleared it up after 4 times using it am and pm. she had the dry skin rash for almost 2 weeks before that.

  • If you have access to Mary Kay....I use the emolient cream from the satin hands collection. It's thick and greasy, but heals over night. I use it on my son's face and he has no problems. I'm sure Target has something like it too. Extra emolient night cream, usually comes in a tube style and almost feels like super thick vaseline. So hope that long-winded description made sense!!!

    I've heard Eucerine is good too, but I've never used it.

  • Look for a cream rather than lotion. I use Eucerin cream on my sons cheeks and any other dry skin area and it clears it right up!

  • Look for a petroleum free lotion like Jordan Essentials Shea body Butter
