i don't see fragrance free/dye free laundry detergent on this list. This made the biggest difference in my daughter's eczema, moreso than using lotions or creams. i agree that aveeno baby bath is best, she still has to use it at 4 1/2 yo.

My daughter and I both have eczema, and I just wanted to let people know try to pat your baby dry (not rubbing) and putting lotion on straight after the bath (that is the most absorbing time for your skin). I have been putting Aveeno lotion on my daughter every morning and evening and it really helps! Eczema is usually some type of an allergic reaction, when I was little it would flare up really bad around animals. So if your baby has really bad eczema further down the road she/he may benefit from going to an allergist.

I found a great lotion that is non-toxic and does not use any steroids. The same company also has sent free, non-toxic laundry soap. If you want more information go to and fill out the more information section.

My cousin uses Beeswax. It is soothing and acts as a barrier cream, good stuff. Mary Kay makes a great one, no scents or colorings, 100% natural beeswax and it is inexpensive and a little goes a long way. Really helped her a lot.

I joined this group specifically because of my childrens needs and ezcema. With the baby crawling, he keeps it aggravated. His poor little feet looked so pitiful. I've tried all the lotions, Aveeno, PX, Gentle Naturals and none of it worked as good as this.

my son had a little, I'm not sure if you would call it eczema but it was just like it. I started putting baking soda in his bathwater(just a little) and it softened up the water and that seemed to help also I started putting a dab of vit E cream on him right after his baths and now his skin is SOOOOO much better.

Have you guys tried ReNew lotion? My husband and children have seen drastic results from using it! We also changed our laundry detergent ...and it has helped as well. ReNew Lotion actually beat Eucerin in a lab test for people with chronic eczema. ReNew is not greasy like Eucerin is too...just thought I would share.

I tried Mia Bellas Sweet Orange & Chili Pepper Bella Bar. This has a pleasant fragrance to it. It is so gentle & mild I used it on my puppy. The bar is made of all natural ingredients. You feel like you have lotion on your skin once you rinse it off. It's 4 sale at

My Peditrician told me to use 1% Hydrocortisone creme(OTC) and then apply vaseline on top of the creme. I did this yesterday after his dr.'s visit and it is almost gone today. The Ped, told me to do this for a week and my sons eczema was really bad on his neck and under his chin and it was very itchy for him and like I said it is almost gone today.

Hi. My Pediatrician prescribed this too and we have tried it. It did seem to clear up the Excema, but in reading the tube, it warns to not put near mouth or nose. Our 4 month old is always putting his hands in his mouth. We have used it on his head only. I love the Gentle Naturals Excema Cream. That works well too and has vitamins A and D. Thank you for sharing.

Eczema is awful! I have great friends whose little guys (2& 3) had it on their face, back...all over!
They "switched stores", stopped using the toxic chemicals in their home, which made their eczema worse, and just really thought about anything that touched their baby's skin. In 6 weeks their eczema was gone! How awesome is that?!! If you'd like to learn more, send a message to me or visit my website:
I'd love to help you, too!

Try extra virgin olive oil. I read about this treatment in Beauty Secrets of the Bible. I used it on my child's face & it cleared up.

My 3 yr old son has eczema sporadically all over his body - hot weather, cold weather - you name it. He even itches in his sleep! His skin ends up so raw that to put any kind of lotion on it makes him scream that it burns. We started using Vitamin E cream and not only does he let us put it on him but it seems to help him stop itching. All the other creams we tried would work for a little while and then he'd go back to itching - even in an Aveeno bath, he'd be scratching! But the Vitamin E cream is a lifesaver.

If your child's eczema is out of control, visit an allergist. My son had it from 3 months on, as well as terrible stomach problems, upper respiratory problems, etc. We had tubes put in his ears twice before he was a year and a half, all from the recommendation of his doctor. His ENT Dr. said there was no way his problems were caused by allergies b/c he was too young. I FINALLY listened to my mom and went to an allergy clinic to discover he was allergic to a whole list of things. Now that he is on allergy injections, takes Zyrtec daily, is bathed with Ivory soap ONLY in luke warm baths, and the dogs and cats are out of the house, he is as healthy as a horse and the eczema is gone!

Hi there ladies!! My son started to get eczema & allergies at 6 months old. He is now 3. Allergies and eczema go hand in hand. But what people don't realize is that most of the time it's not food or allergies that cause it, it's the harmful chemicals put into all these lotions, body washes and such. I had to use everything fragrance free. Johnson & Johnson, Huggies, Aveeno, all have harmful things in them. Quaternium-15 is one of the carcinogens in those products! That is what causes the breakouts almost every time!

I now I have found the most awesome lotion to use on my son. And its' all natural. I must tell you, I lotion him up 2 times a day, and the eczema is completely under control. I had him on steriods and this does an even better job! I didn't like using steriods on him! This lotion works for several different skin issues.

This stuff is amazing and trust me, I tried it all before figuring out what the problem was!

I also use a soap and shampoo made by the same company and I have no worries! Not only that but they make laundry soap as well! And it all has fragrance!!

If you are interested in hearing more about the stuff- let me know!

Gen, I would love to know what lotion you used! My son is 6 months old and he's had eczema for the last 3 weeks. It keeps getting worse.
I'd love any help. (

EMU oil! Works great for me. They also have Emu lotion. Works great for me and my boys. With the eczema we have it works every time.

There are lots of good items made by a few companies that help with Baby Skin problems like diaper rash, cradle cap and baby eczema. Normally it is caused due to allergies, genetic and soiled diaper. Most effective items are made by Mustela a french company since 1950, Gentle Naturals made in USA and a few others. Solutions available at are only doctor tested products. Get the right products for your baby skin.

After bathing DONT dry your child completely. Just till he or she is damp. Then put on some baby oil. Do this after every bath. Bath 2-3 times a week max until the condition is under control. Dont stop at just the baby oil though. Keeping the skin hydrated is very important. So before bed and even when they wake if you want, apply a hypoallergenic, non scented lotion such as baby aveeno. Or even switch it up, lotion in the morning baby oil at night and after bathing. You can even add the baby oil to the bath water as well. And use as little soap as you can to keep from irritating the skin too much.

I think you should add mama natures baby rescue cream to this because i have tried a few of the others like aveeno and california baby and the mama nature cream is much better for my little josh.
