Eczema

Ever since Kaith was 2 months plus, she has dry & scaly skin on her cheek and forehead. I thought it's just normal heat rashes and would go away by itself as she grows. Until the recent week, her skin condition still didn't improve and her face become very rough. She would also scratch her cheeks and head often and it made her couldn't sleep well at night.

Then I decided to bring her to the paediatrician and he said that Kaith was having Eczema but it's just very mild and he gave me a bottle of Eucerin lotion to apply on her whole body including face & head, and another cream for stopping the itchiness.

Just 2 days after applying the lotion, Kaith has regain her smooth skin on the face and now she looks much prettier. :)

Hi K--so nice to hear that your little one is feeling better. Eczema can be so uncomfortable.

Hi Karenyiau,

My baby also having a very rough skin.

May I know which type of Eucerin lotion that you apply on your baby face?

I went to Guardian last night and there are few type of Eucerin lotion to choose. I am not sure which one to buy.

Can you please tell me the detail? eg. red+white container? for normal to dry skin or very dry to dry skin? how many ML? Is it specified for baby used?

Thanks.
