Unfortunately, Baby Hsu still suffers from eczema!  We were first introduced to Exederm when Baby Hsu was about 8 months old (may read previous post here).  Exederm has a new packaging with a 'Seal of Acceptance' from the National Eczema Association on the label.  And, their products are now available for purchase online at The Baby Eczema Cream (intensive baby moisturizer) works pretty well on Baby Hsu.  I religiously slather the moisturizer on him about 3 times a day or more and I notice that he tends to scratch less.  I have tried other lotions and he just scratches like a mad baby. The cream is light and non-greasy and is ideal for children of all ages.  The ingredients in the Baby Eczema Cream include water, petrolatum, glyceryl stearate, stearic acid, caprylic/capric triglyceride, glycerin, ceteareth-20, phenoxyethanol, caprylyl glycol, sodium benzoate, and palmitic acid.  The Baby Eczema Lotion (hydrating baby lotion) is the same as the Baby Eczema Cream, which contains the same ingredients.  The only difference is that the cream is in a jar where you have to scoop out the cream and the lotion comes in a bottle where you can squeeze the lotion out.  There's also a slight difference in the texture, but very similar.  The Baby Eczema Wash (cleansing baby bath) gently cleanses delicate skin and is ideal for children of all ages.  The ingredients in the wash include water, decal glucoside, disodium cocoamphodiacetate, disodium coco-glucoside sulfosuccinate, glycerin, xanthan gum, phenoxyethanol, caprylyl glycol, tetrasodium EDTA, and citric acid.  Exederm does not cure Baby Hsu's eczema, but it does help soothe his itchy skin.

After using Exerderm products, I am relieved to see Baby Hsu scratch less which means less bloody scabs (HSUper Parents-Approved)!
