Some relief in sight....
on August 1, 2012
Background: My baby girl has eczema to the point where she scratches so much, it looks like cuts on her skin. I was told by her dermatologist to bathe her with a moisturizing soap and use a moisturizing cream following her bath. (Along with the usual eczema routine of no scented soaps, bubbles, detergent, etc.) The moisturizing soap didn't help with the deep scratches healing, so I tried Neutrogena because of the active ingredient that would help dry out acne, hoping it would do the same for the the "cuts". It was too strong and broke her out. (Her skin produced tiny, red, itchy bumps all over her body.)
Enter pHisoderm: It is watery as one customer stated, but I like it better than the Neutrogena because it smells better (very light and not heavily scented) and is productive, unlike Neutrogena, which causes you to use a lot to get a nice lather.) It does dry the skin a little, which is probably from the salicylic acid, but that's fine with me, because it's drying the wounds as well. I also like that it has aloe vera, vitamin E, and chamomile, which also is supposed to help with dry, eczema-skin. Using this followed by a moisturizing cream has helped her skin a lot.
