1 year old with eczema

Hello, I have a one year old daughter suffering with eczema. Our GP has prescribed a moisturiser and mild steroid cream but I have been looking online for alternatives as I don't like to use the steroid cream too often. I have come across a website www.skinsalveation.com and wondered if anybody had used their products. Their testimonials are very positive, but I never know how much to trust them...
Thanks.

I've posted about this stuff before. I paid £16 for a pot and within 2 seconds of putting it on him DS said 'Ow, get it off-that really stings!' and we had to wash it off. My friend and my SIL also suffer from ezcema and we tried it on them, too and they both said it stung like hell. Obviously, it might work for you-but we found it was rubbish.

Thanks for letting me know. I'll steer clear of that for now. Have seen somebody else suggesting Aveeno, so I might try that first.
