Worked for baby eczema, drool & heat rash
on April 11, 2015
Wow, this stuff worked pretty fast, literally overnight.
My son has eczema which is exacerbated by heat & drool. It's especially bad on the front of his ankles where it gets a little inflamed & scabby. He also scratches at it if I don't put vaseline or oatmeal based creams on it. On his lower cheeks, chin, jaw and neck it gets pretty bad because of all the drool. Of course I do my best to keep it dry, and I put a vaseline barrier as often as I can, but it's often pretty red and splotchy. Especially when the heat & humidity hit (we're in Hawai`i).
As the doctor and other moms have recommended, I use a vaseline or aquaphor barrier, and twice a day I'd apply Babyganics "Bye bye dry" eczema care cream, and if it was bad enough hydrocortisone cream/ointment or desitin. These things all worked a bit, sometimes his skin would look almost normal, but it wasn't 100%, and there were too many occurrences of rash or scabbing. More recently eczema patches have been popping up around other areas on his body, so I really felt like I wanted to try something new.
I decided to give this a try and I'm really glad I did. It came in yesterday and I applied it before bedtime after making sure I cleaned and dried all the affected areas first (particularly his face/neck because of the drool). This morning I checked him out and no kidding, his skin is clear. There's still evidence that he had something wrong with his skin, as the pigmentation is a little lighter, but all the redness & inflammation is gone, and besides a few tiny scabs on his ankles, they are also clear.
I really wish I had taken before & after photos, but it's too late for that now, and I'm not about to let his rash come back just for that purpose, so I'm hoping this review is enough to encourage other mom's out there to give it a try.
