Product: Cetaphil DailyAdvanced Ultra Hydrating Lotion
A little information first. I have a "almost" 3 year old who has had eczema since birth (we came home from the hospital with it) and is allergic to acrylic fiber, perfumes, some dyes, and ants. If she gets a sinus infection, she breaks out in hives from head (literally) to her feet. We have to use Cetaphil water-less bath liquid soap because she only gets to have a real bath once a week. The rest of the time we rub her down with the water-less soap and wipes. Our lotions and ointments run about $15.00 every week.
That's interesting. I'm glad you found a product that worked well for your daughter!
Years back, we had a dairy goat farm. One lady who had a child with serious allergies used to travel maybe 50 miles round trip, to buy goat milk for her little girl. She claimed this milked kept the skin from reacting to things that she otherwise would, and had in the past. Goat milk that's been properly handled tastes as sweet as cow milk. God bless your precious baby, and your family. Dolly
I was urged to try Cetaphil products by a dermatologist and after balking at the price I capitulated in total joy. No more itching and scaling. I now use the heavy moisturizing cream every day as it is I find it rejuvenates my older skin. A jar of that is $22C and I stretch it out as close to two months as possible.
I wish I had been lucky enough to be introduced to Cetaphil as your daughter has been. It would have saved me a few decades of torment. Good for you for your perseverance.
I'm glad you found some relief. Just a word of caution though: many of the ingredients in lotions are not healthy for our bodies and can put a lot of strain on the liver and kidneys as these organs try to flush them out. Remember that we absorb what we put on our skin -- it's not an impermeable membrane. If you wouldn't eat it, you probably shouldn't be putting it on your skin. Check out the ingredients. I was very surprised and now am looking for safe alternatives. I'm having some success with aloe gel (directly from the plant, to avoid the additives) and almond oil. Rub them together in your palm and they make a lotion.
My son was born with ezcema so we've been using Cetaphil bar soap & lotion for YEARS (he's 20 years old now). His dermatologist gave us samples in the office when he was a toddler & I was hooked. Not only did it give my son instant relief, but like you said - he skin was soft as satin! Yes, it's a little more costly than the other stuff, but it is a good product.
