Re: What do you use for really dry itchy sensitive skin?

We use Aveeno baby every morning and every night. About once a week I make sure to use a slightly rough wash cloth on them with their soap so get rid of the dead skin.

DS's dermatologist has us using Cerave on him--it's like Aquaphor, but is a slightly newer one. It's done really well so far, and hasn't caused any problems with his diapers.

We put a teaspoon of coconut oil in the bath, and between baths just use it like lotion.

He is allergic to EVERYTHING including california baby products, so thats about all we can use.

We also put aloe vera on rashes.

I use Aquaphor at night. Dab a bit on the dry splotchy areas.

Re: What do you use for really dry itchy sensitive skin?

Have you thought of a nutritional approach? There are a lot of topical solutions here, but you can do a lot with omegas and such as well.

I love this site.

What types of cleaners do you use? Those can be irritants as well.

Let me know if you have any questions. This type of thing is my WAHM job.

just wondering if anyone else deals with this and has found a solution? suggestions? hit me!

Re: What do you use for really dry itchy sensitive skin?

We use Vanicream. We see 2 allergists locally & Dr Sampson in NYC, who is considered the top pedi allergist in the country & all recommended Vanicream to us. They have a whole line of their Vanicream skin cream (I have a big tub on my night stand), a Vanicream bar "soap" & my favorite a Vanicream sunscreen, since we're also allergic to comercial sunscreens.

P.S. You can either order Vanicream online or ask your pharmacy to order it for you, no prescription needed.

Eucerin & Aquaphor are good, too but this stuff works best for us, plus I love that they have a whole line of products.
