Allergies and intolerances

Now allergic to aqueous cream and green people.

Posting this on behalf of my Mum. She has a history of lots of allergies, her face can balloon up if the wrong cream is applied, he eyes dry and crack, and now she has developed severe problems in the crease of her elbows.

She has been able to use aqueous cream and the soap before but has now become allergic to that, and has been using Green People products, but again these are now starting to cause problems. Mum is using Dr Haushka and she thinks this cream may be okay.

As her face is so sensitive and now sore, she is desperate to find something to soothe and moisturise. She is waiting for a goats milk product to try.

The GP has prescribed steroids to use, and in the past when her face and eyes have been completely swollen she has used them, but of course this is not how she wants to deal with it all the time.

Just wondered if anyone has similar problems or ways in which to deal with them.

Sorry if it's a bit garbled, I'm in a rush.

DS1 became very sensitive to all petroleum-based eczema treatments and the doctor suggested Aveeno instead.

Fabulous stuff, improved his eczema hugely within days and I've recommended it to loads of people since all with great results.

Hope this helps!

Watch that they havent improved it and added lanolin (also goes by another name or to). I am allergic to it and they seem to be adding it to everything these days. Esepcially stuff thats supposed to be gentle!

Beginning to think i might have to figure out how to make my own soap at this rate

Hope your mum finds a solution.

Thanks both of you, unfortunately she is also allergic to aveeno, but I didn't know that lanolin now goes under a new name, does anyone know what it is?

my friends ds had the most hoorific eczema when he was a toddler...cracked and bleeding skin etc

she saw a chinese herbalist and after a week or so of treatment it had completely cleared up...honestly, it was like magic!

just wondering if something like that may help your mum? it sounds awful for her.
