I know the real struggle to get rid of Eczema as there is no permanent cure for it (until now) but can manage to keep it at bay by maintaining the skincare routine and providing the required hydration which can help to win the long term race. It is indeed a crucial task especially for kids who get affected the most by Eczema. We all want best of best for our children, no matter what it takes. On top of it, skin issues make us more worried as we don’t want to put anything on their skin without having trust in what we are using.
When my daughter was a baby and about 6 months old or so, I started noticing very dry patches on her hand, tummy and mostly near folds on legs and it was itchy too….Initially, I thought it may be a result of the wrong body wash or probably some rash. But when I contacted her Pediatrician, she told me about Eczema. Then the next thing I did, I googled it. It was a whole new chapter for me!!!
Her pediatrician recommended a prescription-strength cream and suggested a couple of OTC ointments. So our first choice was Aquaphore which comes in a jar and has tons of good reviews. It is a multipurpose ointment but mainly used for diaper rash. It is a good one but was not for my baby. We end up using a few more other products for Eczema but no satisfying outcome.
Being parents, we were actually a little bit confused and was dwelling on the thought of “may or may not be” but finally gathered some courage to buy it. Apparently, it turned out to be a must-have cream for my daughter. So, Let’s see what is so special about it!
Its active ingredient is Oatmeal. It is the superfood for the skin and body as well. It works as a cooling agent on dry /irritated skin or inflamed skin. It has a perfect balance of pH and so helps to provide a sufficient amount of moisture to the skin. It reduces the itching, acts as a barrier and protects eczema-prone skin from outside weather. On the company website it says:-
- With soothing natural Colloidal Oatmeal and dimethicone
- Temporarily protects and helps relieve minor skin irritation and itching
- Fragrance-free and dye-free
- Paraben-free and phthalate-free
- Temporarily protects and helps relieve minor skin irritation and itching due to Eczema and Rashes
The results are very surprising. I mean, it is one of the OTC creams which really works as a good juju!!!!. I must mention here that my daughter is now 4years old and I still use this Aveeno Baby eczema cream for her. No more replacement. This is a holy product for my girl. This one has proved “The one”, indeed true to its promise.
