I felt instant relief from the burning and itching the moment I started using it. I have it under control and now just use it whenever I feel like an outbreak may be coming on and it soothes and relieves the pain immediately, it's wonderful! Skin Zinc has anti fungal and anti bacterial properties and it's especially beneficial for me because my eczema is caused by a zinc deficiency.
Even though Skin Zinc has natural ingredients and seems safe enough for children I decided against using it on Isaac. Dustin and I agreed not taking him to the pediatrician to get a prescription since we knew from my experience that all they would give us were steroid creams and odds were none of them would even work. So, my quest to find Isaac something natural began a few months ago.
There are several products that I have tired that failed to work. Then I remembered hearing about a baby line of products when I went to an Arbonne Spa Party last year at moms house. I immediately got online and ordered their baby wash, it's a gentle, ultra-sensitive, tear-free cleanser for hair and delicate skin made especially for babies. As it cleans it helps replace the skin’s natural oils and also conditions and moisturizes. It's fragrance free and ultra-sensitive which is a huge must not only for his skin but for me as well since I don't want any kind of flare up on my own hands.
I make sure that these are the only things we use on Isaac. In fact, when the boys take a bath together there are absolutely no bubbles and we wash Alex after Isaac is out of the tub. All the chemicals in the bubble bath and other washes only instigate the eczema. When I consistently use these two products on Isaac he seems to be symptom free!
