Using Oilatum in the bath seems to have really helped my baby's skin but it is pretty pricey. Is there a cheaper alternative? --can't be arsed to try and get it free on prescription as getting a Dr appointment is bloomin impossible unless it's an emergency here

Oatmeal bath? Stick porridge in a pop sock and put in the bath

Can you not get a telephone appt with the doctor instead? Might be easier, and then it will be free. I've had eczema since birth and I haven't found anything else to replace the Oilatum bath additive, it is a must have in my house.

Coconut Oil will melt in the bath. I've been using that in DD's bath when I've ran out of Oilatum.
