This is my baby girls first summer so I want to take her swimming. She gets very bad eczema. I have to be very careful what I put on her skin as most products give her rashes or make her eczema worse so I’m worried about putting sunscreen on her in case it gives her a rash or flares her eczema up. Do any mums have some recommendations for me please?
