DS (6) has eczema.The run of the mill trousers with a poly/vicsose mix is causing his legs to really flare up at the moment.
Found the perfect ones in Tesco but they dont have his size.He is a very tall so needs 7-8 year old ones.
Can you suggest where i else i can try apart from the majorly expensive ones in on the eczema site??
ANy help is greatly appreciated.

I buy a lot of clothes for dd from 'cotton comforts eczema clothing' online. They do school clothes and grey trousers too, HTH.

I had this problem as well with ds and found that H&M do dark grey canvas trousers that work well for us. They're a bit of a skinny fit and are styled more like jeans but they don't look too different from the standard ones (they look quite cool actually!). School have never said anything. They're about £5.99 and you can order them from the H&M website.

thanks for the ideas.
The eczema ones are a bit too pricey tbh and the school wouldnt allow the H&M ones..argh...

Try British Home Stores. We had cotton uniform from there a few years ago.

Is it that they didn't have his size or that they don't make his size? They have loads of school clothes to buy online if that would help? It looks as though the same styles go across from younger into older boys so you might find them there.

Sorry not logged on for a couple of days nobodysfool - I thought the school might not allow the H&M ones but when I explained the situation (in a firm manner!) they were fine about it. I couldn't contemplate getting the eczema ones - ds went through about 7 pairs in his first year!

I had some once from Gap. But Gap is so seasonal.

Could you get away with cord like some prep schools have- like these.?

Not cheap but one does find things in the strangest places.

Do look at Mumsnet Loans and Grants page as there may be funding for the expensive cotton trousers. Also ask Eczema Society for ideas re funding and suppliers. Don you have a school uniform supplier near you who may be able to source some cotton trousers for you? Eg a shop dealing with lots of schools (probably mostly secondary).

Hi I had same problem with my son. I did buy the cotton comfort ones as they are lovely and soft but he did go throuugh the knees very quickly. We e entually found Some at Asda very cheap and weefine although they were black and not the charcoal grey. Other option is a very light pair od cotton pj bottoms under standard trousers maybe? Good luck
