Going to US soon, and DS always seems to have a flare up when using sunscreen. He doesn't have eczema but his back tends to break out in millions of small itchy bumps, perhaps due to slapping on factor 50 every hour and being in the pool all day. So are there any high factor sunscreens that you can recommend for him? Also an after sun. Thanks.
Buy Aveeno sunscreen when you get there - don't think you can get it here - well not easily. You can get Aveeno on prescription if you have eczema and we found it was the wonder cream for calming sore skin. Would be good to buy generic Aveeno too.
Sunsense is also good (John Lewis sell but not cheap) you can get it in prescription if you have eczema so must be gentle.
my daughter had this problem all through her childhood , really bad rash every time we used ANY suncream the only stuff that worked EVER was banana boat sport not the kids one as that has aloe vera in and caused a reaction too! as did e45 ! they do a cream or a spray mist now and both were fine She stil uses them now shes grown up as so senstive to all others on the market
My dcs react to all sorts of suncreams, as do I. This year we've all managed to use Soltan Sensitive without any problems at all. Incidentally, I use factor 30, instead of factor 50 as I find this is less likely to cause a reaction and because a friend who is a paediatric dermatologist said in terms of sun protection, factor 50 offered only a tiny bit more protection than factor 30.
Yes - this one. I never use anything else now, on myself or my DS. It smells delicious and you feel like you are putting something on your skin that is good for it rather than slathering it in chemicals.
