moisturizers for the skin when you got eczema

Posted , 13 users are following.

So, I have the eczema. Not all of the creams and moisturizers suit me (obviously). Can you, please, share your opinions here about the products you use to moisture the skin and not irritate it even more?

    I use E45 which doesn't cost the earth and works for me. Even good ole' Vasline and Sudocreme does the trick.

    Hi Georgina,

    I use "Azeeno Eczema Therapy", its very soothing and stays on my face untill I wash it off.  The first time I used it - it only took a couple of days before my rash was gone.  But I have heard from others that you must use it every day or it could come back.

    Hi. I've had the same problem for years. And what works for me is that you continously apply the ointment you have been perscribed to grease the skin so that it is wet and greasy, in order to prevent it getting dry- I usually use doublebase gel. Also, I would advise you to take a tablet everyday that are usually taken for allergies such as: hayfever, to stop you from itching, and it helps you to sleep at night too. Hope this helps smile

    Well, it's a problem and I can understand you. I advise you natural product Calmessence fluid gel. It soothes the skin and leaves pleasant cooling, calming feeling on the face. You can also try a good thing - Alodem delicate moisturizer (ideal for fragile skin) and reduces the redness.Good luck, Georgina!
