My daughter has horrible eczema especially during the summer when she is suffering from seasonal allergies. We are constantly putting on creams of all sorts and prescriptions to get rid the rashes and dry skin patches all over her body.  I try to get lotions and creams that are dye and fragrance free as many too many added ingredients can aggravate sensitive skin.  We recently received Gentle Naturals Eczema Baby Wash and Gentle Naturals Baby Eczema Cream.  When I first opened them I did the smell test.  I always make sure if the product does have a scent, that it isn’t overwhelming.  The eczema cream has a very slight, but pleasing scent and ,the best part for my daughter is you can’t smell it when it is applied on the skin.  This is the way baby skin care products should be.

The Eczema Baby Wash is used like bubble bath you pour into the bath.  You simply put a couple of capfuls into the bath.  Then instead of using another product as a cleaner you just take the washcloth and wipe it over the body.   This method makes for a quick and easy bath time experience.  I can just wipe her down and away we go.  She is not supposed to stay in a bath very long and this baby wash makes it easy to get her in and out quickly.  Now I only wish this product could help me get my water baby out of the tub.  She would love to be able to stay in the tub for as long as you let her!  When I go to grab her she lays down and pretends to swim in the water so I can’t grab her.  It is cute and I would love to be able to let her stay in the water, but our doctor just doesn’t recommend it.  I love that this product is made with so many natural and soothing products such as aloe, chamomile, and vitamins.  I will be purchasing this product again next summer when she has another huge break out.

Why should I use Dermarest®?

Dermarest® products have been formulated to provide maximum strength relief from the symptoms of psoriasis and eczema. Our products are fragrance-free, color-free, irritation-free and won’t stain so they can be used on sensitive skin. When used regularly, Dermarest® products can often help prevent recurrence of symptoms.
What makes Dermarest® different?
Dermarest® products are different because they use unique skin moisturizers with Zinc PCA Complex
Can I use Dermarest® on my face?
Yes, Dermarest® Psoriasis products can be used on the face–taking care to avoid contact with the eyes. Do not use on the lips or around the mouth as the product should not be swallowed.
Can children use Dermarest®?
Dermarest® products are specially formulated to be gentle and non-irritating to sensitive skin and can be used on children over 2 years of age. Be sure to supervise children when using the product.

While my almost 2 year old daughter has eczema,  I too have had eczema for as long as I can remember.  Where my daughter really flares up in the summer, I tend to have problems in the winter.  However unfortunately I have seen the signs that she too may have a flare up this winter also.   This last week the temperatures have dipped down so my skin has started the tingling that I get on my legs when my eczema flares up.  This is a very good time for me to review Dermarest Eczema Medicated Moisturizer and Eczema Medicated Lotion.

I first tried the Eczema Medicated Lotion as this had ingredients that I am familiar and have previously used while trying to control my eczema.  This product has 1% Hydro cortisone.  I have used hydro cortisone many times both over the counter or with a prescription when my skin get particularly bad.  What I like about this product is it is in a lotion form and it doesn’t have a heavy fragrance.  Does this product help?  I believe it does.  It helped relieve my symptoms.  I normally get my worst outbreaks on my legs as the seams on my pants rub the tender skin raw and this lotion helped subdue the inflamation.  I will continue to use this if my symptoms come back.  I will have to check with my daughter’s doctor though before I use this product on her,  as it is not recommended for children under 2 without a doctor’s permission.

Next I tried the Eczema Medicated Moisturizer.  This product also had very minimal scent and left a protective film coating on my skin.  I greatly appreciate that this product was not a steroid.  I don’t like using steroids on my skin and it seems like most products for eczema are steroid based.  This product also helped relieve some of my symptoms and I will be checking with our doctor for my daughter as this one also recommends use over 2 as well.

Do I think that these products helped me?  Yes, I do believe they helped relieve my symptoms.  Would I purchase more when I run out? I believe I would buy them again when my eczema symptoms return.  Dermarest is easily acquired as it is available at Walmart.
