Re: Scratching/sores: What is this?

The lotion you mentioned, I looked it up since I'd never heard of it and the first two ingredients are alcohol-based which I would think is probably making things a lot worse. This condition and eczema are worsened tenfold by anything drying to the skin. The only lotion my children and myself get any relief from is the unscented aveeno daily or eczema lotion.
Oh my gosh, I didn't realize! Oh, I feel terrible. Ok, I will go get something else today. She also uses renew or whatever unscented stuff we have around but I will definately go get a different product today. I'm still going to have everyone lay off the gluten because it's definately helped considerably in the past. .Thanks!
