Glamazons, you can pick up a pair at Saks Fifth Avenue. — Not now though because they’re SOLDOUT! Wow! The Bellyitch effect? LOL!
Two of my children, unfortunately, have eczema and have had it since they were babies. A marked effect of this condition is scaly patches of skin, especially at areas of the body where there are creases and folds. In fairer skin babies, the patches are red. Like most children experiencing this genetic condition, mine get outbreaks in the fold of their arms, the backs of their necks and legs pretty badly.
To counter the itchiness that accompanies this condition and help soothe the urge to scratch, we slather on Eucerin’s Aquaphor on them and it immediately stops the itching. It is a petroleum-mineral oil-lanolin alcohol-ceresin based ointment that is also non-comedogenic, non-irritating and non-sensitizing.
After using several samples of other over the counter remedies, we’ve had to settle on the fact that the slightly pricey Aquaphor is the best. It’s not too greasy, but is thick enough to coat the area and subside the itch!
A 14 ounce jar runs about $17 at Walgreens and other stores sell it at a reasonably price. A 1.7ounce for the purse/diaper bag runs about $6.00 on Drugstore.com and other retailers. Wholesale stores like Costco and BJs usually have the best price and for much less.
I highly recommend it and can honestly say it is the best.
Please note that I was not contacted by the makers of Aquaphor nor any related product, brand or PR company to make this post! Just wanted to share that tidbit for any other parent there who has a baby suffering from a similar condition.
