Both my son<2yr 11mths> & daughter <11mths> have eczema.
Can all mommies share with me what shower foam & shampoo
do you use on yr children with eczema?
Currently my daughter uses Sebamed Baby bubble bath children's shampoo while her moisturier is topicream.
My son uses the same shapoo but use milderm for shower.
Also does anyone knows whether the SebaMed baby bath can be use for toddler? Straight on the body instead of doing a bubble bath?
Thanks for sharing!
well, my husband come from a family with skin probs. His father, sister and him have eczema so i dont suppose my children will grow out of it. But i can always hope.
My son has eczema. I use SebaMed Baby also.
You can also try QV.
Currently I use California Baby in his school coz no more bath tub. My son is 20 mths.
Hi, my boy also has ezcema. I've posted my recommendations in another thread: To answer all the PMs (about STON..supplements, boosting my boy's immune system, etc)
My boy has bad eczema, triggered by food and environment. (I have eczema, which disappeared only after I turned vegetarian 2 years ago, so mine was probably triggered by meat / seafood.)
He uses Buds Head-to-Toe cleanser. Physiogel is a good range too. We use Physiogel A.I. moisturizer.
General notes: Avoid soap, SLS, fragrance & coloring. Go for bath oils or those moisturising bath soap.
If using bath oil, can spend a bit more time soaking in bath tub. If using bath soap, keep baths short and brief.
Warm, not hot water. Hot water aggravates eczema.
Pat dry after bath, dont't rub skin with towel.
Hope these help.

My baby girl has eczema since 2 weeks old and I use Dermaveen oatmeal bath oil. You can view my post here on showering baby with eczema.
How to Shower your Eczema Child? | Eczema Blues
Hi! when i found this thread i had to post. my baby has struggled with eczema since birth. we have tried everything. qv, dermaveen, everything! but no good. we found out that those products contain parafins and that this was making the eczema worse. we were left with no options and i was very sad to see my baby in pain. Me and my husband were taking vacation in Australia recently and we came across MooGoo (www.moogoo.com.au). We thought we might try and now we will never look back. after just one day there was a big change. after a week it was gone. i was so happy and now my baby is eczema free. i found out all of their products are for people and babies with skin problems, especially ezcema but we started with the eczema and psorisis balm and msm cream after it calmed down. we now use the milk wash to wash our baby. i love moogoo so much and am very thankful.

As Report Reveals Toxic Ingredients in Baby Shampoo, Johnson & Johnson Goes Public with Plans to Clean Up Products - Forbes
Hi, pls see this article, J&J's products contain toxic, just to let you know since you've switched to J&J.
The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics came out with the news two years ago that Johnson & Johnson’s iconic baby shampoo contained the formaldehyde-releasing preservative quaternium-15, as well as the chemical byproduct 1,4-dioxane. Formaldehyde and 1,4-dioxane are known carcinogens. The federal Consumer Product Safety Commission has reported that “the presence of 1,4-dioxane, even as a trace contaminant, is cause for concern,” and the you.S. Department of Health and Human Services added formaldehyde to its list of known human carcinogens in June 2011.
From what I've read, sounds like shampoo is worst but they use formaldehyde releasing preservatives in rest of baby products as well.
My daughter's baby doctor said cetaphil and physiogel was okay for eczema babies.... i only use J&J baby oil/aloes moisturizer on my baby.
- i think Bubchen baby bath is quite good!!
Glad you've found what works for your baby Yes, cetaphil, QV are good lotions, I use Physiogel too. You can refer to this post on advice by Dr Bridgett on how to moisturize your child, take care
