My 2.5 year old has always had sensitive skin, from birth he would try to scratch at his cheeks, and this progressed to him scratching at his legs instead, and then his bottom, and now his go to spot is behind his knees. I'm not sure why he picks these areas but will absent mindedly scratch at them, it's worst when he's in the tub and has free access to everything. We use tide free and gentle detergent and it doesn't cause him to rash but I have been looking into making my own to eliminate more irritants.
Currently he has a rash all over his arms, face, legs from sunscreen we used on Wednesday. He hadn't had a problem with it in the past but for some reason he is reacting severely now. The pedi recommended testing out natural sunscreens to see which would be okay for him and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. The only lotion we can use on him that is run of the mill is the aveeno eczema kind, and he only gets bathed twice a week otherwise his skin gets too dry and causes the itching to be worse/rashy spots to show up. But now j&j is under such scrutiny and all I want is a safe sunscreen, lotion and baby wash/shampoo type thing for my LO. I have used co on his skin but DH hates touching it so it's only me that would do that.
What would you suggest?? We are having a baby this summer so preferably it's something I could use on both (and me!)
I am open to making my own products but Would need some recipes.
