My two younger children have extremely sensitive skin. My daughter has had such bad episodes with rashes and eczema that we’ve used everything from lotion and creams to hydrocortisone and prescription ointments. The rashes and eczema have lessened as she’s grown older, but her baby brother now has a similar problem.
Squish is our first “fat baby”. 🙂 He gets rashes in his little folds of fat on his arms and legs and under his neck, especially now in the Southern summer heat. We’ve started going through the same lineup of skin treatments, but keep finding lotions and creams that don’t work for him. Some are too thick and heavy, which end up sticky and wet and never become absorbed. A surprising number of them have fragrances or dyes, which make his rashes worse.
When I was given the chance to try Exederm‘s complete line of children’s products, I was thrilled to be able to try them on my children’s sensitive skin. We received the Baby Eczema Intensive Moisturizer Cream, Baby Eczema Hydrating Lotion, Baby Eczema Cleansing Wash, Baby Eczema Non-irritating Shampoo and their Flare Control Cream.
The first product I wanted to try was the flare control cream. Squish has had several areas that we have been treating since he was a few weeks old and I was ready to see how Exederm Flare Control Cream compared to other brands. Exederm‘s website states the this cream is made from the mildest ingredients and is specially formulated so it doesn’t trigger eczema. It’s a mild cream, not too thick or greasy and was absorbed well. Squish didn’t cry at all when I put it on, which was a nice change from some other creams that seemed to burn or sting. We’ve only used it for about a week, but I have to say that so far, it’s my favorite non-prescription cream.
We’ve also started using the Exederm Shampoo and Cleansing Wash with all three children. The shampoo and wash both work well and I’m happy that there aren’t any drying or irritating ingredients left on my children’s skin. After baths, we use the Exederm Hydrating Lotion on dry patches on skin. So far, everything has worked really well and I haven’t had any problems.
We haven’t needed the Exederm Baby Eczema Intensive Moisturizing Cream yet, but I think it will be perfect this winter with the bitter cold outside and then dry heat inside.
