View Full Version : Dry Skin

Does anyone have any good lotions or moisturizers that don't burn. My children get dry skin in the winter and everything I put on seems to burn. Same with chapped lips. Even plain chapstick burns their lips. Any suggestions.

I like the plain Blistex and Eucerin lotion. However, if the Eucerin doesn't work for your kiddos, try Vanicream--it's what my allergist recommended for sensitive skin. Whatever you choose, make sure it's fragrance-free (not just unscented, because the masking fragrance can be irritating to skin, too). If they don't like the Blistex, try the vaseline lip stuff. Good luck!

I agree. Always check for that fragrance-free on the label. Many fragrances use alcohol and this is what causes that burning. Every lotion I buy is fragrance-free.

Avenno(sp?) lotion is what I was told to use for my middle child's dry skin.. Make sure it has oatmeal in it.. Also change the soap they use to dove it doesn't dry the skin it was also recommened for his dry skin by the doctor.Also eczma(sp?) which is serve dry skin can be caused by bathes,so we can't give our little ones a bath but every other night.

My 7mo has eczema. We use Gentle Naturals, it has baby Pooh on the bottle. It's a little pricey, but it works. We've been using the baby wash and the cream.

Try plain vaseline. It seems to work the best and it is cheap. I also have used Vanicream for my kids' eczema and it seems to work well. It is fragrance and dye free and very, very gentle.

I use Aveeno after every bath for my twins and for myself. One of my sons and I both have eczema and general dry skin. Aveeno is very gentle and absorbs quickly. I find that it really soothes my hands if they're dry or cracked especially during the dryer, colder months.

I like Burt's Bees Buttermilk lotion. Baby oil also works nicely, it comes in a cool gel now. Awesome!

I have eczema also and I had a hard time finding ANYTHING that felt like it really went deep into my skin and was waterproof that didn't make me feel greasey I heart the gold bond ultimate healing lotion. My skin often gets so dried out that it cracks open and this lotion deosn't bother me. ****Be careful I bought the shea butter one once and it didn't work nearly as good and if burned on the open skin***

I use a lotion called Renew. It is amazing! I have never used a lotion like it and everyone I share it with, says the same thing. It can help people with dry skin, eczema, and other issues. Let me know if you would like to try some.
