I have found that aquaphor works best for my child's eczema. What has worked for you other Moms. I don't mind trying other things to see if they work better. My husband has eczema on his feet too so maybe something will work better for both of them. I have also tried the eucerin lotion but aquaphor seems to work a little better plus it is easier to rub on.

Renew by malaeluca. It's tough to get but well worth it, my hubbie has eczema all his life, and this has worked wonders for him. Worth a try.

Renew works great.

Renew lotion works the best! You used to have to be a melaleuca member but I recently saw it selling on Amazon. Search for it. It's GREAT!!
I found it for you, here you go...http://www.amazon.com/Melaleuca-Renew-Intensive-Therapy-L...
P.S. you asked about lotions and Renew will help a lot but I also recommend you look into diet changes. My oldest had eczema as a baby and I started with taking chemicals out of the house (hence the melaleuca products), started giving her essential fatty acid supplements (squeezing a flaxseed capsule into her bottles) and rubbing evening primrose into her skin each day. Eczema disappeared and hasn't been back since. Best of luck, I know it's miserable!

vanicream. This works amazing, its the only cream I get my son in the winter time when he gets really dry. He has had eczema since he was little so we have tried almost everything. Coconut oil works for healing the skin as well as tea tree oil. But if your child is little or allergic to nuts dont use the coconut on him. HTH

I would recommend adding roman camomile essential oil to the aquaphor. If it isn't diluted two drops will work for a 4 oz amount of lotion. Camomile is safe for babies. If you have any further questions, you can find me at www.bodychemistri.com.

My dermotoligist suggested Cetiphil. You can get at walmart or anywhere.
D.G. answers from Jacksonville on November 17, 2010
My 3 year old has eczema and we use cetaphil as a moistureizer. His pediatrician also gave us a prescription for hydrocortizone cream. It helps out alot but the small daily things make a big impact. Using sensitive soaps like Dove, instead of rubbing with a towl after baths pat your little one dry, and use the creams and moistureizers generously after baths and in drier weather. Hope this helps :)
