Following on from my eczema queries, what do you do about hair-washing?

DS has quite long hair and it could do with a wash, has anyone had good results with a particular shampoo? I really don't want to kick-off the eczema (all over his trunk) that today seems just about under control.

we use halos n horns stuff with our dc who also have eczema
there are no nasties in it and it just seems to do the job - we use the orangey hair and body wash, and for dd with longer hair the melon shampoo/conditioner. like you, we have the eczema just about under control, what a blardy mare it is!

If he is ok with vaseline it may help to put a bit on him as a barrier before going in the bath if you end up using any shampoo or products that he reacts to?

Aha, yes, vaseline. Good idea.
Thanks gigglewitch.

DD had one prescribed by GP, can't remember the name but it was 'tarry' (like vosene) was fine.
