Aveeno for my 9 yr old?

Aveeno for my 9 yr old?

Postby alipo » Fri May 16, 2008 9:05 pm

I have just been advised by a good friend to try aveeno. my son has suffered from ashma and ecsma since he was about 9 mths old. hes now 9, we have taken it all, used all the creams and nothing seems to make a difference, and once the skin is broken on the rashes the spots seem to spread like impetigo. then i cream him and but his arms and legs in tube grips to stop him itching, after doing this for a week or so, day and night they eventually decrease, until the next time, the heat, causes him to sweat which makes him itch, which produces rashes. he gets it backs of knees legs arms inside elbow and his eyelids. we have had allery test, dogs cats grass pollen and dust mites seem to be the triggers, so we try to do all we can to elliminate all of these things, but will Aveeno be the help we are looking for, or is the new formular going to make it a waste of time buying it. any answers??

my son has the same symptoms as yours, Aveeno oil was the only thing that helped him. It didn't cure him, but it seemed to moisturise his skin. A nurse told us about Aveeno and said some GPS won't prescribe because of the cost. Oilatum, Diprobase made him worse. You have my sympathy, my son didn't sleep through until he was 6 when things got better. He's 11 in 2 weeks and it's flared up again, don't know about new Aveeno formula

rub olive oil on her skin before she has a bath. If you put oatmeal in a sock in her bath, thats meant to help with itching. And yes, some aveeno after her bath should help. Try and get it all done at least an hour before she goes to bed so her skin isnt all stimulated.

I've e same problem since cohidhlod 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 cohidhlod 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!!!=]=> just to add on after i see Minx's answer: i do not have constipation problems often lol!

Harsh long winters, a wood stove in the lnivig room cause some really dry air. Even though we have humidifiers and such, my skin and hair is overly dry. The Aveeno not only feels great, it smells wonderful! I found it in a local store, love it, then went to purchase more and couldn't find it anywhere! Seems really dumb that I now have to buy it online. Worth the price for sure.

is red, dry, patchy areas of skin. I is cmmoon with children and a large group out grow it. The only thing you can do it treat it, there is no cure. I have psoriasis which is similar, the main thing is moisturize! A great soap is Cetaphil, it's not harsh and won't dry out the skin like most soaps. Cerave is a great lotion, it doesn't contain a fragrance or other things that dry out the skin. There are steroids that are anti-inflammatory like Clobetasol Propionate (ointment), but that's far to strong for and kid.
