  • One of my sister in law had serious dermatitis at one stage and practically her skin was falling out . I didn’t even know what it was until she told me . If it isn’t too serious maybe go into a pharmacy and see if there is some cream for her and if it is really bad consult a GP who will send her to a skin specialist if t is very serious . The doctor also said in her case , it was stress related as well so not sure if that will help you .

  • The best cream to help is jurlique baby barrier cream, it is scented lavender but it seems to clear up mine and my daughters without prescription creams

  • As others have suggested QV or similiar for sensative skin would be best and maybe antihistamine.

  • i am using the qv for my child and that was also the pharmacists recommendations. he also suggested using a brand called PHYSIOGEL as they stocked it and there are creams, lotions and a bodywash. thanks all!

  • Don’t use Phisahex, it will dry it out!! To stop the itch use a cold compress and bath in QV wash, then apply QV intensive cream to the area,

  • Is the like the old school sores? I remember having to wash the kids in Phisafex

  • thanks so much. i will try that!

  • We had to use that QV liquid in our son’s bath and no soaps to help his Eczema, maybe that could help?
