can anymore recommend a good eczema cream for my 2 year preferably natural or goats milk based. I'm open to all suggestions
I highly recommend one that Billie Goat Soap makes, it works for eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis.
One of my family members has psoriasis and the improvement when he swapped from harsher treatments like Coal Tar, to Billie Goat Soap products has been quite extraordinary. He swapped shampoo, conditioner and the cream in the range.
They're also affordable and at almost all pharmacies
Hope's Relief also make very good products - my son recently tried their shampoo and conditioner range wit h great results, plus he's used their all natural cream with good results too - I do think for him personally that the Billie Goat Soap range has been the better of the two
Hey Linda do you know if works quickly? I brought the balm on Saturday and don't see any change just yet? Maybe I'm being impatient and need to wait it out
I don't have eczema, but I have an autoimmune health condition. I experience lots of irritation, rashes etc on my body (not my face). I've tried lots of lovely and gentle healing products. For my own needs, the most effective products were Billie Goat Soap Intensive Eczema & Psoriasis Balm, Hope's Relief Premium Eczema Cream and Nourish Naturals Eczema & Psoriasis Cream.
MooGoo make some excellent creams for soothing irritation, but I seemed to go through the creams much faster. Having said that, their products are definitely worth a try.
The first three creams are usually available at Priceline. MooGoo's products are available online and from some health food stores.
Eczema is a really tricky thing because I've found that what works for one person is not necessarily going to work for another, and even what works for one flare up could very well not work for the next. It is a really fickle and frustrating condition! Especially with children.
I heard such great things about Gaia so I tried it on my daughter and it didn't work at all! QV and Dermaveen weren't much help either. Once those flare ups occur, they can be quite temperamental.
What actually worked best for my little one when she'd have an eczema flare up was putting just some plain oats in a stocking, tying it off, adding it to her bath water and once it got soft, squishing up that stocking to get the oatey goo and then just dabbing that over the areas that were inflamed. That goo is very soothing for irritated skin and it worked like a charm every time. She responded better to that than any cream or ointment - including hydrocortisone cream.
Then once the skin settles down and is no longer red and angry, maintaining daily moisturiser after baths to keep the skin hydrated is a good preventative/maintenance measure and just about any gentle cream should do the trick for that.
Thankfully my daughter's eczema flare ups are few and far between now that she's older, but every time she starts to get some redness, we just start going through all the creams again to find out which one her skin likes at that particular time. I truly feel for anyone dealing with eczema. It's not easy!
I heard from someone that good old Sorbelene cream can help relieve dry skin and mild skin problems . Give it a go as a bottle is so cheap now .
Definitely recommend Moogoo. Excellent natural products designed for sensitive skin and conditions such as eczema. They even have a special eczema cream. I'd also reccomended their milk wash. Check out their website, they provide tons of information and specify all the ingredients in their products etc.
Hi, can anyone recommend the most gentle baby shampoo? Need to wash my sons hair daily for a condition since birth. His scalp has been getting dry
I would reccomend trying the Moogoo milk shampoo and the Moogoo scalp cream for your son
I can also recommend Billie Goat and Moogoo. My daughter uses both soap and skincare from each one and has found them perfect for her eczema, no reactions at all.
it's tricky with babies as they can't use steroids eg cortisone creams like us adults.
i had skin irritations recently, possibly eczema and i relied on Calendula Caress for healing
Also highly Recommend Hope's Relief Therapeutic Cream (crediting Petal for this recommmendation)

Thanks for all your help and feedback, luckily my local chemist stocks the whole Billie Goat Range so I've given the intensive eczema & psoriasis balm ago along with the baby soap, hopefully my daughter will get some relief quickly
My son has eczema on his face and upper arm area. Every year it flares up and looks really red and sore. I have tried every thing and nothing works I tried vitamin e oil and it flared up even more. So did the olive oil. I found out about apple cider vinegar treatment , so I decided to give it a go. I love natural remedies so I diluted one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with equal amount of water and clean the affected area with it. Left it for one minute before rinsing it off.Did this twice a day, morning and night for two days. I saw a big difference to his eczema just after the first application. After wards I applied some paw paw ointment to keep it moisturised. If you see my son's face you could not tell that he had eczema on his face at all. What works for one person might not work the same for another person. Make sure the vinegar bottle has mother on it. Hope this helps.
I use qv bath oil for bubs bath and cetaphil baby shampoo for her hair (she had ALOT at birth) and weleda mallow moisturiser for her skin. She now has the softest most beautiful skin.
Manuka Biotic, I swear by it!
My one year old got eczema so badly when she only 9 months. Steroid cream, MooGoo, QV, Coconut Oil or anything else I tried didn't work. Not even the cream my doctor prescribed work.
I came across a Facebook page and thought I'd try it out and it worked!
You can purchase it online, they stock lotion, cream, body wash, facial cleanser, facial moisturiser, shampoo, conditioner and soap. Highly recommend.
Plus it's natural.
My son had eczema from around 7 weeks old til 10 months, the only thing I found that really worked was plain old sorbelene. I have tried a few different creams, and some quite expensive, but they never helped (the eczema didn't get better, but didn't get worse either). But once I started using sorbelene it cleared. He is now 19months old and with spring here he is getting a little bit on his face, so I apply sorbelene and it helps to hydrate the skin and keep it soft.
Weleda has very good products but i dont know where to get them in Australia. Websites like iherb and Nourished Life sell them.
Dermaveen works well for my son's eczema, mixed with pure shea butter from Loccitane if I'm not too lazy.. Dermaveen bath oil is amazing for him in the bathtub as well.
you can use pure goats milk as a non foaming cleanser
We have exzema in my family and my bub gets it occasionally. I love moo goo but the exzema and psoriasis cream didn't do much. QV baby moisturiser was the best thing I've used so far. A sock full of oats in the bath is miraculous also.
I haven’t tried Moogoo but have heard great things. We use the QV bath oil and the Dermaveen bath oil in our house. However my eldest daughter is starting to find deodorant hard to find, as she will often break out under her arms!
I have used Glam brushes for the last few years because of their quality and affordability but they have just released brushes in Conjunction with Bec & Bridge that are leopard print and they a
I tried the Naturopathica Collagenix Beauty Dust for around a month and I really enjoyed it as far as Collagen supplements go.
I love the packaging of this product. It is leak proof and small enough to carry everywhere without worrying about it being bulky.
