Eczema lotion alternative?

Posted by   + Show Post

I don't think our daughter has eczema, but she does have a few rough patches. I've tried all kinds of lotions for severe dryness, but none have cleared up the rough spots until I used Aveeno Eczema lotion. I love that brand and it worked great on her and kept the patches away, but a bottle doesn't last long and it's too expensive. Does anyone know if there is an alternative lotion that works just as well? Or any recommendations from someone who has little ones who have similar issues?

I'm not sure if its ok for little ones, the The BodybShop makes Hemp lotions that work great for eczema. I use it all the time

My DS has been used Cetaphil body wash and body lotion since birth. It works great on his eczema.

I'll have to try the coconut oil myself, but I use the same lotion as you.

Renew lotion by melaleuca. Works wonders without any of the harsh chemicals other lotions have.

Yes, it is great, my son really started using it at his 4th bath, since most baby products such as soap, shampoo, baby oil, baby lotion etc gave him or made his eczema worst.
