Aveeno. It's a bit pricey over the counter, and GPs are often reluctant to prescribe it, but it's what lots of people will recommend.

I find double base too light when my ds's eczema flares us and use a paraffin wax to provide a barrier against weather etc.

Ds has had a nasty breakout of eczema on his face/under knees/elbows. we are using double base and dermol in bath plus baby shampoo but its still quite bad. any suggestions for over counter stuff before I can make it back to gp next week?

background to this is that he is eczema prone but this is a bad outbreak. Nevis allergic to peanuts which we've known about for awhile - causes hives and red skin but no anaphylaxis type symptoms. however this week he had a nasty reaction to hummus totally out of the blue - cue full on swollen face hives and sunburnt like skin - only on his face mind. we've got a referral for testing. the hive s went quickly after piriton but its like the redness on his face has never gone away ifyswim? gp has said avoid all nut, hummus and sesame products until we get results of testing. (we assumed face would calm down when we saw gp hence not asking about it then)

TIA
