Top 10 Eczema Creams for Babies and Toddlers

March 11, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 231

Eczema is a very common skin condition, especially in infants and toddlers. Because of a baby's sensitive skin, the parents should be cautious about which lotions they use. Here is a list of the top 10 eczema creams for babies and toddlers based on personal experience and customer reviews.

1. Aquaphor Healing Ointment from Eucerin

This moisturizing ointment is designed to treat diaper rash and chafed cheeks and chins from drooling as well as eczema rashes. No eczema cream can be the best cream for everyone since people's skin react differently to skin care products. An example is that some parents say this is an extremely gentle cream compared to other creams while others say that this cream is harsh.

2. Aveeno Baby Soothing Relief Moisture Cream

Less greasy than some creams, this moisturizer is absorbed quickly in the skin. Like many others, this lotion contains soy. So, it should not be used on infants and toddlers who are allergic to soy.

3. Gentle Naturals Baby Eczema Cream

Some parents say that this moisturizer worked better on their children's eczema than what the doctor prescribed. This does not mean that parents should disregard the doctor's recommendations. A concerned parent may want to discuss using an over-the-counter cream like this one rather than a prescription. However, this lotion contains soybean oil, so it should not be used on children who have allergies to soy.

4. California Baby Aloe Vera Cream

This cream contains organic and sustainably grown ingredients. It does not contain soy or dairy as many creams do. Some people use this cream for the whole family for eczema and minor skin irritations.

5. Mustela Stelatopia Moisturizing Cream

Some parents say that they had success using this cream to treat their children's eczema when the eczema did not get better with other creams. Bad customer reviews for this cream say that it didn't work for their children or the effect of this cream doesn't seem to last very long.

6. Shea butter

Many people use shea butter for themselves and their children. Some tout shea butter as a natural cure for eczema even though there is no cure for this condition. Shea butter can be sold separately or as an ingredient in moisturizing creams.

7. Triple Cream Severe Dry Skin/Eczema

Though this cream can be a bit greasy, it works very well for keeping skin moisturized. Customers say that the cream effectively reduces eczema flare ups. This cream is suitable for children and adults.

8. Calendula oils and creams

Calendula used in moisturizers is from marigolds. Moisturizing creams that contain calendula often are very good at treating and preventing eczema.

9. Babyganics Bye Bye Dry Moisturizing Eczema Care Cream

The positive customer reviews for this cream say that it effectively moisturizes the skin and works very fast to soothe eczema rashes.

10. Neosporin Eczema Essentials Daily Moisturizing Cream

Parents said that this cream worked very well to clear up dry, flaky eczema rashes on their toddlers and school-age children. Some parents whose children have severe eczema have used this product as a steroid alternative.

Not even the best eczema cream will work well for everyone. Unfortunately, this means that finding one eczema cream that works for an individual involves trial and error. Hopefully, this list of the top 10 eczema creams for babies and toddlers will provide a starting point for parents who need to find a cream that will work for their children.
