  • I use goat soap from chemist warehouse.

  • Moo goo range works great for me ! They have products for eczema and are all natural

  • Goats milk soap,you can buy it as a bar or cream,all our kids used it and I recommend,a little dearer than normal soap but worth it, Cheers Krusty.

  • QV or Cetaphil body wash are both good. If you buy in a big packet when they are on special, they are good value.

  • Some of the ones that say they are for sensitive skin still have chemicals in them. The way to go is pure natural like Goats Milk or Oatmeal, you have to read what’s in them so you know what they have in them.

  • We don’t use soap for our daughter with eczema – we use QV body wash. Much gentler.

  • My eldest son was the same. We used Moo Goo or Goats Milk Soap. Because we were desperate to find something suitable I searched the net and was lucky enough to get some free samples of products to try.

  • My son had horrific eczema as a baby (it’s still bad in winter now, but nothing on what it was) and we’ve found using Moo Goo body wash and Moo Goo eczema and psoriasis cream have made a huge difference for him.

  • My grandson also had bad eczema when he was a baby, and the best thing for him was goats milk soap…. whilst she was breastfeeding she also had someone make some from her breastmilk and this worked amazingly also. Hope this helps.

  • Two of my children have eczema and I find Goats milk soap is good especially for the whole family to use I buy mine from Coles and Aldi or Priceline. Any body wash from chemist which says soap free is good, QV is good but very expensive. Sorbelene moisturiser is good for when it’s bad. This website has good reviews from friends but I have not tried yet http://www.grahamsnatural.com.au.
    I always found this tip from my doctor good when using cream to treat flare ups apply the cream and wrap the area with glad wrap and try to keep on over night. This increases the potency of the cream without any harm. Especially good for low level steroids.

  • I would try Imperial Leather Sensitive. It seems to be the most gentle.

  • I agree with those who say QV. I have inflamed sensitive skin and QV is the only thing I will ever use! Highly recommend.

  • Hopes relief is great. Or any of the QV range

  • My late husband never had a problem with eczema until he had cancer. He found that Moo Goo products really helped to ease the problem. Everyone is different though and I hope you find one that works best for your daughter

  • I recently tried Tom’s Creamy Coconut soap bar with coconut oil from Coles. I find it nice and gentle however when my son was very young and covered head to toe with eczema, there were times when we just used warm water as his skin was so sensitive. Unless they are super dirty, sometimes warm water is enough for severe eczema and dry skin or try a tiny amount of the Tom’s soap and rinse well. don’t let them sit in soapy water. Hope this helps!
