Re: Eczema cream for mum on Chemo

Hi!

Sorry to hear of the chemo - a better cream to help restore dry skin will be one with ceramides/lipids - these replenish the missing parts of the skin that causes the dryness, more effective than plain moisturizing which protects the skin barrier from excessive loss of moisture.

Wishing you a good hols!

‘Many of the creams contained strong steroids that actually hurt Lula to apply and I became increasingly worried about the potential long-term side effects,’ she said.
Mrs Balmond refused when Great Ormond Street asked to carry out steroid treatment when Lula’s eczema was at its worst aged three.
