dd3 has what appears to be infantile eczema on her face, have been using diprobase/doublebase (the other kids perscription was changed to doublebase) but it hasnt cleared, in fact it seems worse.
a, taking dd3 to the GP when i get a chance, am wondering if i could ask for aveeno.
DS ( 7 months) has pretty bad excema over his face. Diprobase was hopeless but I have found Epaderm to be great. Its really thick like vaseline but keeps things under control. Occasionally I have to use hyrocortisone on top but generally the Epaderm is enough.
Good luck. Hopefully your dd will grow out of it as my first did.
I can't think why not... I have checked the label of the bottle at home and it doesn't say anything, in a way... it's an over-the-counter cream but a b**8 good one too. It's good to have it prescribed because it costs about 8 pounds for a 350ml bottle. (though it only needs to be applyied 1-2 times a day compared to the 8 times a day I needed to apply Diprobase)
Aveeno and Eucerin 10% Urea were the only creams that have been of real use in DS's case. HTH
I would just like to thank the power of mumsnet for introducing me to this wonder cream.
NOTHING has eased my itchy psoriasis on my scalp as well as aveeno.
Didn't realise you can get it on prescription too.
Just a quick word of appreciation!!!! Heard about AVEENO on mumsnet and it has been the only thing so far that has cleared up my 5 months old eczema on his face, so thanks a million for the great advice.Happy baby = Happy mummy!!!
