My 2 year old C suffers from mild eczema. It’s not uncommon for him to have one or two small patches of dry, scaly skin somewhere on his body. Thankfully it doesn’t seem to bother him too much-I never see him scratching or complaining about those spots but if he does have a flare-up he does get noticeably more uncomfortable.
When we received a sample kit of the Neosporin Eczema Essentials products I was curious to see how it would compare to the steroid cream C’s pediatrician had prescribed to treat his eczema which is what we’ve been using.
I tested the body wash out myself and though it doesn’t lather up quite as much as I like body wash to, I did notice that my skin didn’t feel as dry after showering. I’ve used it on C as well but it’s hard for me to tell how much it helps him. My main concern with using the body wash is keeping it far from his eyes since I doubt the body wash is a “no tears” formula.
After rubbing the Neosporin Daily Moisturizing Cream on C’s skin I love how soft it feels! Two days after I started using the cream, the few patches of dry, scaly skin that C had were completely gone. Since then, I haven’t really noticed dry patches.
I haven’t had cause to use the Neosporin Eczema Essentials Hydrocortisone Anti-Itch Cream because his skin cleared up with the body wash and Daily Moisturizing Cream, but I’m fairly convinced that should the need arise to use this cream it will do it’s job and relieve any itchiness or discomfort C may experience due to his eczema.
If you or someone you love suffers from eczema, you may want to look into the Neosporin Eczema Essentials kit to see how it may relieve the symptoms.
