I am wondering if any mums can recommend dishwashing detergents that are suitable for sensitive skins. I know I should just use gloves but I am always forgetting and quickly washing things up – my hands get so dry and itchy afterwards, and eczema flairs up.

  • I hope you have found the best for you! I struggle a lot so avoid washing up – dish washer and husband ;)

  • If your skin is still flaring up, keep some sorbolene on your sink and apply to your hands after you’ve washed dishes.

  • There are now dishwashing detergents and laundry as well for sensitive skin . They are written on the label. I think Palmolive has one , but check the isles at the supermarkets .

  • I like Palmolive myself (I also have sensitive skin) but I also try to wear gloves every time

  • I don’t have eczema but do get dermatitis flare ups. We have to use Earth Choice products in our house now due to being on septic but I find that they are much gentler on my skin.

  • Most brands threes days make sensitive ones .. Might just have to try a few to know

  • i just use morning fresh. you could try wearing gloves

  • Dominant make a good dishwashing liquid and I have never had my sensitive skin flare up after using it

  • The Eco Store products are great. I use the grapefruit dishwashing liquid and it works well but is not so harsh on the skin. I still prefer to wear gloves though.

  • palmolive make a sensitive skin one

  • I use fairy and have not had a problem

  • I have sensitive hands and the only one that doesn’t crack my hands is morning fresh.

  • I use gloves and also Earth dishwashing liquid and palmolive.

  • I think the only way to go is not to forget the gloves as I have a member in the family on my husbands side and nothing is suitable.

  • I always use Earth dishing washing liquid it’s great for sensitive skin
