  • My two year old has it. We use cetaphil lotion(found in the same isle with face products). His skin drinks it up. i used to use that first and then layer on the Eucerin if his skin was really dry or itchy. Try different combinations and see what works best. I liked this one the best since the first one is absorbed very quicky and the eucerin adds an extra layer of moisture.

  • Two of my kids have it and I also have it. Aveeno lotion works for the most part...but sometimes when it gets bad we need a prescription cream. Works like a charm at relieving it and getting rid of it.
