What are your favorite lotions and creams to use that you found were effective? Whether OTC or prescription?

Renew lotion did what NO other lotion, cream or oil could do. Within 2 weeks my son was discharged from the derm. AMAZING stuff. Scientifically proven to be 7x more moisturizing then eucerin.

I use vaseline in the winter, aveeno in spring and cetaphil in summer to keep my daughter's eczema under control. Oatmeal bath helps a lot during flare ups.

We used to use Aquaphor but for some reason she says it hurts when I put it on her this year (she flares up pretty badly in the spring). I am going to give George's Special Dry Skin Cream a try. It's made in Canada so I don't know if that is available elsewhere. If it doesn't work, I will have to see if I can find Renew.

My son has severe eczema.

So far Vanicream is the only lotion to help.. But it doesn't not completely go away.. I'm going to have to try Renew.. Praying that might help..

My four year old suffered for the last 3 years with eczema and I hated using the topical steroid creams prescribed by the doctor. We found renew lotion about a year ago and also changed his laundry detergent and body wash/shampoo to natural products by the same wellness company. As long as I keep with these products, we have healthy skin and we are so happy!!

My 12 year old nephew has severe eczema, has tried prescription after prescription and lotion after lotion. It either stings and burns or it dries him out faster.

I am an Avon representative (not trying to sell anything) but my sister buys an Intensive moisture extra strength cream. It has been the only lotion that my nephew can use that don't dry up his skin, don't burn or sting. He loves it.
