Weleda is good and half the price - in an orange tube.

Don't use johnsons it's packed with perfume! Have you been to a chemists to look for something? There are quite a few about. Alternatively google it and make your owngrin

Aveeno do a body wash and a bath oil. Their products often suit sensitive skin/eczema. Available from Boots.

Halos 'n' horns are gentle on skin and reasonable price too

If they're not dirty I would just use water, no need to use any soap/bodywash or anything. If you can get a prescription try Dermol or buy aqueous cream to use as a soap, it's very cheap.

We use Sanex, the childrens one, both girls have mild eczema and are fine with this. Can use as a wash or bubble bath.

EldonAve Wed 22-Aug-12 07:26:38

We use Aveeno or Dermol

I have Sanex, Aveeno and Weleda for us here. (Can you tell I am a product junkie?) Halos n horns brings my daughter out in a rash, no idea why.

Dermol is great, my Dd has super sensitive skin and we use nothing else, get it on prescription too

MegBusset Wed 22-Aug-12 07:43:54

We use Halo&Horns, even on DS1 who has eczema and he's fine with it

legoqueen Wed 22-Aug-12 08:04:27

Another recommendation for halos & horns here...

Dermol and Green people, although mostly just water too, very sensitive skin and lots of eczema, we like Aveeno as well.

I love Aveeno. I find it very soothing for my own eczema. I can't use Sanex. It seems to exacerbate it.

Evasmum12 Wed 22-Aug-12 08:12:13

I would recommend Halo n Horns too. My DD hasn't had any eczema flare ups atall since we started using it, it smells nice and it's cheap!

Weleda and Burt's Bees both suit eczematious DS

The Arbonne baby wash is lovely stuff, but that won't be any cheaper than California Baby. Just sayin' though...

I like the Weleda Calendula one too. It's kind of milky rather than foamy - it's often the foaming agents that are drying/irritating.

Halos & Horns Orange shampoo and body wash is fab for DS.

He gets very dry and sensitive skin, and hasn't needed his prescription moisturiser since we started using it. DH has also started using it as he loves the smell hmm grin

We use Halos N Horns (the blue baby one) on DS 3yo. It smells gorgeous and doesn't aggravate his very dry, itchy skin.

MrsApplepants Wed 22-Aug-12 09:05:50

Green Baby body wash is great and much cheaper. Also like green people's babies and children range.

witchwithallthetrimmings Wed 22-Aug-12 09:09:34

Water, children don't need a body wash
