DD (8 y.o.), is very allergic to sun tan lotion and can only wear proderm sun mousse. We have a dilemma where in July we fly to Majorca for our holiday. The sun mousse is in a pressurised container and cannot go in the suitcase. It is also over 100 mls and cannot go in hand luggage. They do not make a smaller bottle. Can anybody recommend any other sun tan lotion that can be used instead? I know we don't go for a while, but I might need to skin patch test certain lotions before we go. Thanks.
After googling for ten minutes I can't find anywhere that says you wouldnt be able to take it in your suitcase. if its over 100ml it can't go in your carry on bag, but would be fine in your suitcase in the hold. Where did you get told you couldn't?
My Dd is allergic to suncremes and I hate using ones with chemical nasties. I use Neals Yard's one for her. Its SPF25 so you need to reapply fairly often, but it is good, natural and has a nice lavender smell.
There are also the invisible zinc ones that you can get from Selfridges, although I've not tried those.
"You may take non-radioactive medicinal items or toiletries (including aerosols) like hairsprays, perfumes, colognes and medicines containing alcohol, in limited quantities in your checked and hand baggage" this is what it says on the pretravel-baggage advice-banned items-half way down, under the heading 'medicines and toiletries' i think compressed gasses are different to pressurised containers
if your dd is allergic to most suncreams, then your Doctor would be heartless if he wont give you a prescription for it. Ive had many moles removed, and I now get normal suncream on prescription - so it's not an unreasonable request.
