I have very dry skin and acne prone skin but was put off by all the chemicals in commercial lotions. I found various sources that reccommended using olive oil with some drops of tea tree oil. It works wonders and won't wreak havoc on the endocrine systems! Stopped the itchy dry skin AND cleared up my acne too!
I have found the following website to be quite useful for information on eczema. You might find some helpful tips and advice here:
Good luck, there is nothing worse than seeing your little button suffering.
When my baby was born she had such dry sensitive skin that the doctor kept trying to find the right lotion. Johnsons lotion would just burn her and she would absolutely scream. I felt sooo bad. Just didnt know if any other mothers had the same thing happen to them. If so, I hate seeing any baby or child be in pain. I found a wellness company that has great products and it made a wonder to my baby. She doesnt cry or scream when i put lotion on her and she has no patches of dry skin. Just thought that I would share for parents that went through what I did. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Would love to hear from other mothers and be able to help their babies like I helped mine.
My son has dry skin patches that our pediatrician said was eczema, he suggested eucerin instead of a steroid cream. But I have actually found a natural lotion without the greasy feeling, it is renew. It has cleared up my 6 month old son's skin and makes the irritated spot under his chin from drooling more manageable.
Dry skin is one of the most common problems of all parents for their babies. Generally you don't need to worry about this because it is not a major problem, you can just check your baby with pediatrician and then you can also use some branded baby lotion like Johnson products are also good for small babies.
Ahh I know this thread is kind of old, but I'm glad I found this, because I've been curious about aveeno products and how helpful these are!!
