Any ideas? DS is 5, and prone to Eczema so we have to apply Hydrocortisone as and when and Aveeno twice daily. We're taking him to Tenerife in October and I'd like to find a high factor sun cream that won't affect his skin. All the ones I've tried before have caused flare ups. Thanks in advance x

I can't remember the name of the ingredient that irritates my DD's skin, but I know it is in Soltan and not in this specific Nivea Cream or P20 cream and she can use them with no problems.

We use that Nivea one as well for Dd

It's the only one that doesn't irritate her as it doesn't contain something that the others do!

I also can't remember what the thing is!

Ultrasun is great. I prefer the clear gel one.

My dd dermatolologist reccomended "sunsense" which you can buy from Amazon. She has had moderate/severe exzema since she was 3.
Unfortunately she is allergic to.lots of creams and has needed emergency treatment abroad from suncream use so whatever you get, definately start hding it before you go.
She doesnt react to the sun sense one.

P 50 works excellently for DD sick she has server eczema, Boyes and home bargains do it the cheapest too

This isn't water based so doesn't trap the heat in the skin. I love it.

It actually had factory in los cristianos jn Tenerife and I discovered it when I lived there! You can buy it out there (reps come to hotels) but it's risky in case you don't have rep and you can order online.

I use to use sunsense on ds excema prone skin big this was even better for him
