    My baby has dry skin as well. I'm using Gaia's Baby Moisturiser for my baby's body and SebaMed's Baby Face Cream.

    You can go under eczema thread... But if skin is drying... Gaia is not going to help much... Best is physiogel or QV cream. Very moisturizing! For baby use fragrance free products.

    I use the California Baby Camling Lotion, quite good, not oily and smalls great!! Can get from the BPs here or club 21 at Isetan Scotts or Forum. CB also have the summer lotion that have added citronella to stave off bug bites.

    If your BBs skin is very dry, can use the moisturising creme from the same range.

    Dermaveen. It's good for sensitive and eczema skin. You can find it in Guardian.

    Hi dreeym,

    Yup.. My son got very bad rashes when he first came over to Perth, so the GP there recommanded this lotion as she's using it for her daughter who has eczema. Ever since then, we have been using it. I applied it all over his body and face. It has oatmeal which is good for dry and sensitive skin and it dries up fast, not leaving a greasy feel.

    Here's how it looks like. http://www.dermatech.com.au/pages/default.asp?pid=67

    I saw it selling in Guardian at Tampines MRT station, so I'm assuming most Guardian will carry it. It's not cheap, but a little goes a long way.. I think it's still cheaper than brands like Gaia.. I tried Gaia for my boy's rashes but it didn't help and it's rather greasy...

    calendula products are good, u may consider. Alternatively, can try the Aloe Vera also. Both are natural ingredients.

    my kid has eczema too. I use Cetaphil for his bath lotion and use CB lotion to moisturise his body after every bath. Somehow it worked. My PD also recommended Sebamed & QV cream.

    If your baby has ecezema, it's best to use organic products. No harsh chemicals and less drying to the skin.

    Hi mummies,

    PD recommend me to use physiogel and topic cream on my bb.

    It works well for him.

    Both products are affordable and get easily off the shelves of guardian or unity pharmancy.

    Hi,

    I have quite a few pieces of Physiogel Al cream (only available at PD clinic, not off shelf). PM me if you want to buy at lower cost.

    Sebamed is good for me as it provides a whole range of baby products from shower, face cream, nappy cream, lotion . . .etc . . .
    It smells nice and cures my baby rashes especially nappy rashes almost within 2-3 days.

    Mmm yes I use Physiogel AI, or even the normal Physiogel is good too. There's also Johnson and Johnson Natural moisturiser which is supposed to be more "intensive". Green colour bottle and cap.

    Hi,

    I find both Sebamed and Himalaya Baby creams to be wonderful. I have tried both and find them equally good, and Himalaya baby cream to be economical.

    My daughter had horrific dry skin and rashes. The Dr recommended Aquaphor but it didn't work. I put Aveeno baby eczema cream on her once and she was 90% better! Now her skin is back to baby soft in just 3 days.
