DD has eczema and it has flared up bad recently. Any good baby washes that are good for eczema? We never had luck with Aveeno.

 Dove Sensitive Skin.  My pedi recommended it. 

I bought the Baby Eczema Wash in the green bottle from the baby section, made it 10x worse.  Dove is awesome.  Also Aveeno Oatmeal bath packets.

I have been searching for over a year for a REALLY good one.The best so far though that I have found is the dollar general brand co-co butter and aloe one.

Our allergist recommends soaking our 6MO for 30 min in leukwarm water up to his shoulders everyday WITHOUT soap (Dove sensitive only if dirty). If you do use a product, do it last--they should only soak in clean water. So that's what I've been doing, well 20 min about 5x week. We have a Tummy Tub so the soaking part is easy and he loves bath time.

The water soak opens up the skin enough to let in the water it so desperately needs.Then you have to keep it there. So when we're done, I carry him to his room, without towel drying, and immediately rub in a moisturizer. We're using Aquaphor for winter. Then we let him rest and his skin recover before dressing. I add some medicine if it's a bad flare.

It seemed counterintutive at frst, but we have seen a huge improvement since we started doing this. Mind you, his eczema is not as bad as some kids, but his skin is so soft now.

My pedi just recently said absolutely no soap wash for out son and his eczema cleared up in a few days. We also use the tide free for laundry detergent and all free and clear for the soap and bounce free dryer sheets.
