Do you also have constipation prebloms?? A deficiency in Vitamin B6 will produce symptoms of constipation including dry mouth. Vitamin B6 is necessary for the production of Hydrochloric acid. Hydrochloric acid secretions below normal have been linked to the following:;Rosacea;AstmaHives.Hydrochloric acid plays an important part in the first digestive step, which if not completed properly, can result in digestive prebloms all the way through the digestive tract.Hydrochloric acid (HCI) does not digest food on its own but creates and environment in which digestion begins. HCI is responsible for converting pepsinogen to pepsin, which begins breaking down protein in the stomach. With limited HCI, pepsinogen is not converted to pepsin and protein digestion fails. A second action of HCI is to prevent infections, since most organisms that are ingested are destroyed by an adequately acid environment.Symptoms of HCI deficiency: meal related bloating and burping, general flatulence, history of adult acne, history of and drowsiness after meals.Organic apple cider vinegar, 2 tablespoons full, in a glass of cold water taken 1/2 hour before meals will mildly stimulate hydrochloric acid production.You would also need to increase you intake of foods rich in this vitamin ie: wheat bran, brewer's yeast, wheat germ, liver, fish, soy beans, cantaloupe, cabbage, green leafy vegies, whole grains, brown rice, eggs, oats, peanuts and walnuts. Vitamins B6 is also required for the proper absorption of vitamin B12 and the production of magnesium. So, you may have also been experiencing deficiencies in magnesium (known as the antistress mineral) and vitamin B12. A deficiency in vitamin B12 will cause a whole host of new prebloms !! ie: fatigue, exhaustion, depression, irritablity, moodiness, dizziness, insomnia, inability to concentrate, sweating in the head and hands, headaches and migraines, heart palpitations and even chest pains !!I have a sneaking suspicion that your eczema can be radically alleviated by following my advice. You will notice a vast improvement in your symptoms within 24 hours and therefore the quality of your sleep and peace of mind will increase. That in itself is invaluable, isn't it !! I've just been through an outbreak of severe eczema on the backs of my legs, behind my knees and behind my upper arms. This is after never having had it in my whole life!! Within the week it appears to have all but gone, with just a small amount of it left !! Believe me, it scared the pants off me because it was extremely scaly and angry looking !!The conclusion I came to with myself was that I had an allergic reaction to an oil used in a tinned variety of red salmon I ate !! Makes it hard doesn't it??? After a bit of research this was all the steps I followed and the results are fantastic .. I sincerely wish you all the best of health ..:0)PEACE LIGHT

I've e same problem since chiodhold days too. its common for ppl staying in tropical area to have eczema I resides in SGP by the way A few tips to reduce itch:1) use diprocel cream (gradually i found tt it itch less often)2) take Atrax (an anti itch pill not immediately felt but usually next day u dun feel itchy at all)3) take a flu tablet pill (the yellow colour type) i was told that it has the same effects as Atrax.1 2 requires a doctor's prescription while 3 can be bought over the counter at pharmacies.when it itch real bad i will take 2 or 3 option. it works for me and i seldom has itchy attacks now. maybe once a year or something? and every attach is mild as compared to my chiodhold days.Please consult a doctor! what works for me might not work for others! I went to National Skin Centre to have a specialist's opinion before, for your info.As for tips to prevent u from scratching during sleep wear long sleeve (make sure its loose / not thick material so that you can loose heat easily) sleeping in air con room might help cos heat is the main cause for eczema attacks. having a cold shower before sleep helps too! In short avoid and reduce HEAT! (put ice packs on ur arms when u sleep to numb ur hand maybe?)oh, and stop scratching!!! slap or beat ur skin instead!!!=]

Do not use steroids on your skin...they will thin your skin and the thinning is permanent, leading to bruising. Cocoa butter and Aveeno and olive oil are good. Just started using borage oil and lots of vitamins!

Hi everyone, I got recommended by my doctor some cream bases, you're looking at chemical free, nothingness.

-Wools alcohol ointment
-Emulsifying ointment

They're very greasy but you can mix it with water to thin it down.

Also I am curious as to why no one on this website talks about Zinc Oxide cream, its only a couple of dollars and once again contains next to nothing. Zinc is essential for skin health, this is the non-greasy alternative but let me warn you it smells a bit like paint (which I kind of like). However, I've literally watched my skin heal before my eyes, and wounds sealing up so fast it kind of scares me that realy, we were just zinc deficient?

I mean, zinc is also a very useful supplement for people wth acne, so I am drawing a conclusion that zinc is the missing inredient in most skin related conditions.

I live in the US and we use Hydrolatum which is about $12 a jar for my 18 month old son. We bathe him in only water every single night for at least 15 minutes and only use soap once or twice a week (Cetaphil bar) and we use generic Alecon steroid ointment for bad breakouts. I want to know if I can obtain or mix my own 'aqueous cream' for alot cheaper. The upside of Hydrolatum is that it works and is made in the USA.. not sure about the other subs. Anyone switched succesfully?

BTW a word of advice: our dermatologist gave us ruinous advice and I feel like his job is to keep you coming back. our Immunologist "cured" us in the sense that the regiment can keep my son free of eczema flareups for the most part.

Dolly - I've not used it for years now but I used to get 50/50 on prescription in a 500ml tub which is basically the same as what you're mixing up (white soft paraffin + liquid paraffin). Might save you the hassle - unless of course you're mixing them up in different proportions.

Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of pageLink to this message   By Dolly on Saturday, June 28, 2008 - 09:47 pm:

I only use Aqueous cream to wash with and I find it affective. I wouldn't use it as a cream. I make my own ointment using white soft paraffin and liquid paraffin and mixing them together. It's the same ingredients they use in the steroid ointment, minus the steroids of course. It works wonders and doesn't irritate me at all. It's also cheap to make. The liquid paraffin is quite good to put in bath water too. Or you can use sweet almond oil, but that's quite expensive.

Diprobase is soy based and made my sons eczema flare terribly. James turned out to have a soy allergy so obviously that was why. I hope you find something that works well for your daughter soon. I did find that having a couple of different emollients on rotation worked well for a while. We could only use the hydromol ointment by the way as the cream or lotion made James's eczema worse.

I agree. What works for one person may not work for another. My daughter cannot use Hydromol but has been using Diprobase ointment for some time now.Recently however we've noticed that it is irritating her more than helping her. Its trial and error I am afraid

E45 can also irritate people with eczema as it contains lanolin. Having said that I don't think there is any emollient that suits everybody. When we used prescription emollients we found epaderm and hydromol to be the best but unfortunately they only worked well for a few weeks at a time and then my sons skin seemed to build a resistance to them.

we went to a dermatologist and were told our 6 month old has eczema and he said for us to bath him in qv oil, apply aqueous cream to his body 3-4 times a day, we did that and it actually made it worse, his arms and legs came out in a rash. b4 i saw the dermatologist, i was bathing him in something made for babies with dry skin and eczema etc as well as the lotion and cream and his eczema was clearing up really good. we stopped using the aqueous cream 2 days ago and have gone back to what we were doing b4 and the rash has gone and is clearing up just like b4. my 6 month old son also has eczema on his scalp and face and we were told to apply sigmacort ointment to his scalp/face 3-4 times a day and it is working wonders, we will soon only need to apply it once or twice a day. i will never go back aqueous cream, my son's eczema has gotten better since we stopped using it.at first it was working but then after a couple of days of using it, the eczema was getting worse. i thought i was the only one who was experiencing it but ive found im not the only one.

I use lanolin free Aqueous Cream as body wash. Ok it doesn't foam up like other body wash but I find it stops my skin drying out so much and because there a fewer ingregients (in most makes of Aqueous cream) it causes less irritation too.

Can Aqueous Cream BP differ from brand to brand, as I assumed that it was a set standard? My eczema had virtually cleared up so I decided not to use Dermol Lotion and just use a bland moisturizer such as Aqueous Cream BP. In the past I have obtained this cream at my local pharmacy with a doctor’s prescription and it was completely scent free and trouble free. However, I bought some cream from Boots and it smells of coal tar and I notice for the first time in ages my skin is starting to itch.

I have had eczema all my life sometimes it flares right up and other times it is fine but I was prescribed aquase cream to help with my dry skin and it made my eczema go completly out of control to the point i just wanted to end it. Then the skin specialist told me to stop using aquase as that was the problem causing my ecxema to flare up. I have been in hospital for treatment and they have given me diprobase to use it helped for a bit but not much good so I have started using vaseline dermacare and I find this is helping already my skin feels more moisturised and it last longer my skin is not drying out as quick. I also use epidermus in the bath it's an emoilient with antibacterial agent in it. I t also helps. Hope I have found the solution after what the aquase cream did to damage my skin.

Hi plasmagic thats interesting about u saying acqueous drying out your skin, I find it does that to my face I have used acqueous for years and it is ok on my body but i have noticed my face has been flakier and drier since using it on my face, I prefer to use a natural cream i have used propolis and other natural creams I find it works best in the longrun, In New Zealand we have an emolient that sounds like your epaderm its called 50/50 its greasy but the best i have used

As a sufferer of eczema all my life I have gone through many different moisturizers to try and help keep my skin supple and reduce flare ups. Although I have found diprobase and that has worked for me, it does contain chlorocresol which is a preservative that some people may react to. E45, oillatum all have lanolin products and therefore you need to watch out for them. It is a fact of life if you have sensitive skin that you will have to experiment with some different creams that don't irritate you but a tip to reduce the number of iterations is to use the more basic cream and to look up on the web what are typical ingredients to avoid. I have recently had a breakthrough with my eczema and that was after trying numerous dermatologists and all sorts of things, I was finally sent to do a patch test. (Previously I was diagnosed as atopic and therefore a patch test would not help). They stuck about 75 different substances onto my back and basically found the substances that bothered me the most were nickel, chrome, ethyldiamines and cobolt. Avoiding those things has helped immensely especially with my hands. It has not cleared up completely but I suspect I don't know everything I need to avoid and plan to ask for another patch test to test different dyes and detergents.

yes hey there my baby has had eczema since birth. Was just reading the comments about aqueous very interesting. I have taken her to two dermatologists and both had different views. Was given Aristocort and that teared through her poor skin. She is 6 months now and her flare ups aren't as bad as I have cut out dairy, wheat, gluten and now soy and fish from my diet. The second dermatologist recommended moisturising as much as possible to keep the skin well emulsified. Am currently using cetomacrogol cream with 10% glycerine it seems to keep it at bay. My daughter isn't itchy but the eczema is there. The back of her head has clearded up tremendously. I am also taking evening primrose oil and giving her probiotics. I was recommended by a freind to try evening primrose oil directly on the skin and pure coconut oil. Will try these and get back to you. But does anyone have any ideas about other ways to improve and make it go.???? It is a headache and annoys me!!!
I am cutting right back to using 1% hydrocortisone once a day and then eventually only when it flares up!!! Any comments anything!!???

Ali, you are right, and unfortunately it can be a bit of a treck through lots of different options before you find the one that's right for you. If you have a very sympathetic Doctor (we were extremely lucky with our GP), they may give you a selection of smaller pots to try so that you're not going back and forwards all the time.

I would recommend trying Epaderm (especially on babies), Doublebase Gel, and Aveeno cream to see how you get on with those. I have to say that most creams contain some ingredients that you might be surprised at, but at the end of the day it is how your son's skin reacts that matters. Creams that sell themselves as "natural" might be no better and in some cases an awful lot worse than the ones prescribed by drs.

JMHO though! Good luck with it. My son is now 2 1/2 having had eczema since birth, and things are getting a little easier. I think it was hardest when he was 4-6 months, and so I really feel for you. It's finding the right creams, the right routine and getting rid of our cats that has really helped us manage this condition.

Just want to say - thank goodness - my son (just 5 months) has had ezcema for a couple of months & after a couple of days with hydrocortisone to clear up a particularly bad do, we've been prescribed Aqueous cream. I'm not particularly happy with ingredients (SLS) & have had a feeling he's been reacting badly to it - but those statistics... I just feel I'm not alone, and there are clearly alternatives that WILL work - just got to find them!

Thanks

am still an aqueous cream fan... but only Boots own brand. Seems to keep my eczema stuck to my fingers instead of letting it flake off over the hand rails on the Tube. :)

But the 500g pots look a bit industrial for my desk, so during the day it's all about Vaseline Intensive Care DermaCare handcream with "natural lipids".
I took this on holiday instead of my aqueous cream, which was a mistake and I got little blisters in my eczema for the first time ever, but generally it's fine for times when the "big tub of goo" isn't socially acceptable!

But the thing I've recently discovered...
For a while now I've had eczema on two fingers of my right hand. Random, but there you go. The top and sides of my fingers are far worse than the palm sides, and I couldn't work out why.
Then I realised it might be to do with my face serum I've been using, and started rubbing that in to my fingers as well as my face. Has worked miracles! I now only need to cream up once or twice during the day, rather than every half hour!

This is the stuff...

Hi there!

Thought I would share some of my own thoughts & discoveries, for what they're worth - apols for the length of the message ...

I'm 33 (male) and have had eczema since I was a baby. A skin specialist recently presribed a combination of Diprobase Cream and Doublebase Gel. For some reason, the value of moisturiser was never driven home to me when I was younger and I have found this a bit of an "epiphany".

Diprobase is a very luxuriant moisturuiser and especially effective for extra dry skin conditions, especially during the Winter months (it does not contain steroid!).
Doublebase Gel though is my favourite... not as thick as Diprobase, I tend to use it more in the Summer, it has an unusual wet (I guess gel-like!) consistency and this has a unique effect in terms of a protective layer that it provides on the skin. Using this my skin has a really healthy shine (uh-oh, this sounds like a shampoo advert!), loses a lot of the angry redness and actually feels close to "normal" for the first time.
Both of these you can get in tubes or in big 500g pump dispensers.

Other things I've discovered...

A friend of mine recently recommended Cetamacrogol cream (she no longer uses any steroids). You can find this as a native cream (Boots sell it), but its also a constituent of Diprobase Cream.

Natural remedy?...
My hairdresser this week told me that one of her client's acute eczema on her scalp cleared up completely after she started to take Cider Apple Vinegar. Done some research and this seems to be one of nature's panacea's - you can drink it, but also apply to the skin treat directly for skin disorders such as eczema... I'm gonna check it out!

Good luck... I hope you all find something that works for you.

-C. :)

Found this on Netdoctor.co.uk, which I found interesting...

Dry skin results from lack of water in the outer layer of skin cells known as the stratum corneum. When this layer becomes dehydrated it loses its flexibility and becomes cracked, scaly and sometimes itchy. The stratum corneum contains natural water-holding substances that retain water seeping up from the deeper layers of the skin, and water is also normally retained in the stratum corneum by a surface film of natural oil (sebum) and broken-down skin cells, which slow down evaporation of water from the skin surface.

The skin dries out when too much water evaporates from its surface. This increases as we get older, and is made worse by washing, because hot water and soap remove the layer of natural oil on the skin surface.

Moisturisers are helpful for all dry skin conditions, particularly eczema and dermatitis, which get worse when the skin is allowed to dry out. Used regularly they help restore the skin's smoothness, softness and flexibility by helping the skin retain moisture. They should be applied frequently, particularly before or after washing, to prevent the skin drying out.

In conditions such as eczema, using a moisturiser regularly, even once the skin has improved, can help prevent flare-ups of this condition.

My daughter suffers from mild eczema mostly on her face. I didnt want to use the steroid cream that the doctor prescribed so used a product called "Tui Bee Balme" which has worked wonders. It takes about a week to clear but the woman who sold it to me from the health food shop said she uses it on her eczema and that it takes away the sting and itch. It is also fabulous for nappy rash and as a daily nappy cream, great when you are breastfeeding etc. You can buy it online at www.tuibalmes.co.nz

I'm in my fifties and have badly sun-damaged skin with eczema as well. By far the best cream I have used is Epaderm - my skin has changed dramatically - it has caused no irritation at all - skin stays moist all day and it is great in the bath - bit sticky on clothes - but overall great.

woody - i think the trick is to keep the moisturiser regime plain, regular and simple. everyone will have a different story here about which type of cream/emollient to try - what best suits them - but the least amount of fragrances,alcohol additivies the better. there are a few good brands out there on the market by reputable companies that may well help - i've ended up just using a mixture of sorbolene cream and petroleum jelly (e.g.vaseline or generic brand) - very scientific here - half a handful of each rub together to mix and then rub on - get the best of both worlds in that get the cream plus a heavier emollient base which helps to keep the moisture in. if the eczema is really bad (which often it is e.g.. bleeding & cracked) then just stick with the good old vaseline - we go through loads of the stuff - god knows what the chemist thinks each time we stock up with the stuff!!! but its very cheap and it doesn't really sting on really sore skin. If using steroid creams - then can mix these in with the moisturiser (if have large affected areas) or put on afterwards. hope it helps!

Over the last year my eczema has slowly worsened as I have tried to stop using steroid creams as my skin has started to thin.In my search to find the best emollient I have tried aqueous cream for a time.I didn't realise how many people have reacted to it in the same way as I have until I searched the web.My eczema has been absolutely horrendous while using this and I will certainly never use this again.I am however still searching for something to provide some relief.Any ideas would be most welcome!

Sherry, Ruth is SO right about aqueous cream. It should just go in the bin. Diprobase is a GPs favourite too, but I've found it absolutely rubbish for my baby. Lots of people find oilatum really good. I struggled to find anything my son didn't react to, but Epaderm was the best for me (sorry to keep banging on about it everyone, I really really don't have shares in the company). Bathing can be really good for eczema, to wash off the dead skin cells that can build up with the creams, but we found that every other day was right for us when our son was little. Right now we're trying twice a day baths to relieve his eczema, which seems to be working, but it has to be REALLY really cool water, and loads of epaderm, and straight away lots of emollients afterwards. You aren't using soap or shampoo, are you?

Sherry - why don't you try and just use the oilatum in the bath - can even put a little bit on a flannel and give her a quick wipe over with it - forget the aqueous cream - it seems to cause a lot of people on here more problems than anything else!. Oilatum is a gentle water dispersible bath oil and makes babies skin feel nice and soft after they come out. You will also find that the warm water will also make the rash go redder too - just due to the blood vessels dilating at the surface of the skin (which are often already dilated in eczema sufferers) - our girl sometimes used to almost turn the colour of a tomato in some places!. Bathing is good - helps to reduce the bacterial growth on the skin and keeps them clean

Epaderm is a really thick greasy emollient. It's got emulsifying wax and yellow soft paraffin in it. We use it as an emollient, and in the bath as a soap substitute and a bath additive. It's mucky stuff but definitely the best thing we've used. I think a new company has just come out with the same formulation but a different brand name. Does anyone know what it is called?

Doublebase is made by Dermal and I think it's quite new. The active ingredients are Isopropyl Myristate and Liquid Paraffin. Maybe in Aus it has a different name? On its own it isn't effective on F's skin, because it is relatively mild, but combined with Epaderm it seems to relieve itching quite well for us anyway. It seems to cool his skin down, in fact after we put it on he gets goose bumps! It's been great because F's skin gets so hot.

The thing I have learned is that everyone's skin is different, and that what works for one person causes a reaction in another person's skin. I think it's really important to keep trying different emollients 'till you find the best one for you (or your child). For example, my son and I both have eczema, but the creams that work for him often irritate my skin, and vice versa. Personally I've found aqueous cream to be pretty ineffective. My all time top emollient has to be Epaderm - in the bath it is fab and as an emollient it is well worth a try. I use it on my son in combination with Doublebase gel and it really does soften his skin well. If you aren't happy with an emollient, stop using it and ask your GP for a different one to try, even if other people you know say it works for them - everyone is different.

My eczma recently flared up for the first time in years (inside of elbows, wrists, front of thighs).

I bought some of the steroid cream that I used to have years ago (Eumovate - now over the counter but was prescription only back in my day!) and it did nothing!

I talked to the pharmacist in Boots and got a huge tub of aqueous cream. Best £2.80 I've spent in a long time!

I smother it on at night under cotton pyjamas, and also normally under my clothes during the day if I'm wearing long sleeves and machine washable trousers. Has worked absolute wonders, but the 500g tubs aren't too portable.

I have one at home and one at my boyfriend's, but it'd be good to have something a little less scary-looking to have in my desk at work. I've read about the tubes of aqueous cream here - do Boots do them? I've never seen them...

when my son was about 1 month old he had this terrible eczema on his face. i used vaseline, sudocrem and even hydrocortisone to stop to the itching. hyrdrocortisone did work but we all know the side effect of it so i stopped using it. then it flared up again. sad to say, 2 of the doctors i've seen didn't pay any attention to it and just said it's normal for kids to have it. so i went to another gp and prescribed diprobase together with fucidin ointment because he thinks the skin is a little bit infected as well because it has been weeping already. it has steroid in it so gradually once the weeping subsided i stopped using it. i continued with diprobase and it works very well. i apply it to my baby about 4 times a day because i dont want to go through what my baby went through before. diprobase does not have any steroid in it it's just a very effective moisturizer!

The reason that babies and kids are reacting to the Aqueous cream is because, other creams that have been prescribed such as Diprobase, thinen the skin, which many patients are not told about, therefore when you go back to using Aqueous, you get an instant reaction to it. Thining the skin is a bad sign, because if you use it on babies from when they are born, up until the age of 15, there's no way that scarrs, etc are going to go away.

When there was a problem with manufacturing Diprobase last year, we couldn't get hold of it and had to use aqueous cream on my young son (3)who is wet-wrapped 24 hours a day on arms and legs. It definitely made his eczema worse and we realised that he must be reacting to the aqueous cream. Now we use Cetamacrogol which you can also get from GP. It costs about one sixth of what Diprobase costs, so if you go through 10kg every few weeks like we do, it's a lot cheaper.

After reading all the comments on this page right here, i have to agree with you all. From 0-15 years old i was given Aqueous Cream from my GP and was told this was the only type of emollient i could use. When i insisted i could not use this anymore as everytime i did use it even though for a very short while it worked. He sent me off to a dermatologist and ater many skin tests and everything they do, i was given Diprobase. It works wonders. If i use it daily i find after around 3-4 days my skin doesnt react as readily to it as if i use it 3 days then stop for 2 then start over with the 3 cay cycle.
I know in here everyone is only expressing which things worked for their experiences, yet just because someoene else didnt like the use of a vertain cream it may work for you! I know many people who have eczema and i have tried things they disliked and it cleared my E for a periods of time. Please dont let the fact it doesnt work for some make you think that it wont for you. IT MIGHT! Take care.

In my experience with Aqueous Cream it all depends on the chemist You buy it from.
I discovered that Aqueous cream from Numark contains a certain type of alcohol which is not in the Boots brand. The end result is the Numark branded tended to sting and enflame my skin whilst the Boots brand was perfectly fine.

Dr Cork spoke at some length about Aqueous Cream at the Eczema Society conference a couple of years ago. There are a couple of potential problems with Aqueous Cream. The main one is that in many (but not all) brands of Aqueous Cream, the surfactant that's used (to mix the water with the fats in the cream) is Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS). This is an old and very cheap surfactant, and there is a very high incidence of reaction to it.
The other possible troublemaker could be the preservative that's used, to stop bacterial growth in the cream. This varies from brand to brand. Aqueous Cream may be OK as a soap substitute, but it leaves a lot to be desired as a topical emollient.

Hi

Elaine - I too prefer Diprobase rather than Aqueous Cream. I used Aqueous for many years and then my GP thought I may have been allergic to it and went back on to Diprobase - ive tried both the cream and the ointment and prefer the cream in the tub as well as the tube - handy when goint out.

Marianne - I also have had eczema on my eyelids - very dry and flaky and it looked awful. I had it all over my face last summer and my GP prescribed hydrocortisione 2.5%. I did not use this high strength I used either 0.5% or 1% - I think 2.5% is just too strong for the face. Hope this is helpful

Take Care everyone

Sarah

By Elaine on Sunday, February 03, 2002 - 05:04 pm:


Marianne - i know that hydrocortisone doesn't always help because it dries the skin. You can either ask your doctor for the ointment (which is a bit like Vaseline consistency) or use something like Diprobase as well as the steroid. Diprobase just hydrates the skin and is (in my opinion) much better than Aqueous Cream.

My Granny cut an article out of the Telegraph last week that said the following quote from Dr Michael Cork, senior lecturer and consultant dermatologist at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, Royal Hallamshire Hospital " There are a number of emollients on the market, all available on prescription and suitable for babies. The only brand that shows up irritant reactions in 50 per cent of cases is Aqueous cream".

I had already started to wonder if it was the aqueous that had made H's skin worse. When the eczema first kicked in at 4-5 months we tried E45 and she had a severe reaction to that (at the time we thought it was the lanolin).

Now at 20 months - having stopped using aqueous and started using diprobase about 3 months ago (as well as just sticking to goats milk and avoiding tomatoes) she is just about clear.

Totally independently, and unprompted, two mum's told me last week they had stopped using aqueous as they thought it made the eczema worse on their toddlers.

Food for thought!

This was the first cream given to us. We stopped using it because we were not sure whether it was causing a reaction. What have been your experiences with this cream ?
