My DD has very sensitive skin. Suddenly very itchy after bath. Can anyone recommend any sensitive soaps that they have found works.

I don't moisturise her with anything other than olive oil which really works.

We just go with oats in a sock in the bath, soothes the skin beautifully

Bubbles wise ds1 (6yrs) has sanex zero and this doesn't irritate his sensitive skin

We use rolled oats as thats what we eat, but basically you get a handful of oats and put them in an old sock or cut the end off tights, put then in and run the warm water over them, squish them about and you get like a milky water. The good stuff in the oats soothe the skin. Just chuck after each bath

We use Weleda Calendula bath wash which was the only one my dd didn't react to for a long time.

Oilatum. Or paraffin based bath products. Also oats yes in a muslin or old sock/foot of tights tied around tap as you run bath.

My DH had skin issues to - we have oilatum oil for bath and also a cream for afterwards. Makes a huge difference. Not sure where u r, but we get it on minor ailments at local pharmacy.

We use oilatum in the bath for DS's eczema and then a good emollient cream afterwards.

The Nature's Children range is really good. The products are all natural, organic and safe. The Mandarin Bath Oil is really good for Eczema, and the scent helps to balance children's moods :D It smells really warm and happy!

You do not need to use soaps. I usually bath my kids in just water and sometimes some olive oil in the bath or vegetable. I wash my sons hair like once a month bc he hates it and my daughter i wash hair like once or twice a week. And every other day use baby soap to clean the private parts. I think the lest products the better. Kids do not smell like adults start no need to put soaps on them every day. But my kids are just 2 and 3 (almost 4). Not sure how kids smell as they get older smile
