P.S. asks from Mount Laurel, NJ

My daughter has very dry skin that can be sensitive. Can anyone recommend a good FACIAL moisturizer for children? I use Aveeno Baby on her body, but when I tried a little on her face it caused irritation. She is almost 4 years old and has always had sensitive skin. She has occasional problems with eczema. Thanks for any suggestions!

What can I do next?

I used little palmer's face butter for my daughter. She had eczema on her face when she was only a couple weeks old and it cleared it right up. It's in a little tube and you can get it at babiesrus.

I also have to give a recommendation for Cetaphil for sensitive skin. I love it. I have also used Aquaphor on my son and that worked well too.

We use aquaphor when their skin is really dry on face or anywhere, but all other times our Ped. recommended using Vanicream. Not greasy at all and both my kids have slight eczema and quite sensitive skin and Vanicream has never caused any irritation. It is very mild. It is easy to find at any drugstore/Target/Cosco type place.

My daughter also has eczema and has since she was born. I will put Triple Paste lotion on the areas on her skin and that seems to really help. Also use Aquaphor body wash and lotion. Her dr gave us a prescription which cost $60 (with insurance) and it did not work. The triple paste has worked the best for us! Good luck.

I use Cetaphil on my son (2.5 yo) all over including his face. He has sensitive skin and eczema and we've had no problems with it.

CeraVe is probably the best out there. Oftentimes it is kept behind the pharmacy desk so if you don't see it, ask. You can use it on her body as well. A little pricey but very worth it.

I agree with Aquaphor before bed. It's amazing!



answers from Pittsburgh on

Like Brenda P said, Cetaphil is great. It even comes in a sensitive skin option and most places (like Wal Mart and CVS) have a less expensive store brand. I also noticed our Sam's Club had the Cetaphil soap and lotion if you are looking for a 3 pack.

Arbonne's ABC Baby Lotion is great for head to toe I also recommend using the ABC Hair and Body wash since OTC products have alcohol and other drying and irritating ingredients. The ABC Baby Oil, Diaper Rash Ointment (great for bug bites and stings and minor scrapes and burns) and the ABC Sunsreen are all pure, safe, beneficial and effective products for Baby, Children and Adults. Please private message me for more information, before and after pictures, a free sample and my contact info.

Renew by Melaleuca is awesome for sensitive dry skin.



answers from Philadelphia on

When my son had a spot of eczema the pediatrician recommended aquaphor. Walmart sells the generic of it and it works great. My neice and nephews had eczema because my sister in law is an native american. It is something that always worked well with dry skin and the eczema. It can be used for the rest of the body as well. When I had a bad sunburn in June,it was the only thing that soothed my skin.
