The Salcura range helped to treat our baby’s eczema and her skin cleared up in a few weeks.
Eczema causes red, dry and itchy skin and can occur anywhere on the body. Eczema is very common in babies, with around 15 to 20 per cent of babies suffering from eczema at some point, usually occurring for the first time before they are 2 years old.
My baby developed eczema when she was 9 weeks old. I found it really distressing seeing the irritation and soreness it created. As a result of the discomfort and itching from the eczema our baby’s sleep was disrupted, which meant our sleep was disturbed as we woke to her crying and spent many hours soothing our baby.
Our GP recommended several brands of medicated creams, including steroid cream, which we tried in vain. They worked for about 5 days and then the eczema would flare up again and the creams we had used no longer helped to calm the irritation and red, dry skin.
I searched endlessly for a magical cure and came across the brand Salcura which is a natural treatment for eczema and dry, itchy skin.
I love the fact that Salcura products are natural as I don’t like to use chemicals on my baby’s delicate skin.
Having experienced eczema with my baby at a very young age Salcura was the one product that worked in clearing up her eczema and continuing to manage any flare-ups. It keeps my baby’s skin moisturised and soft.
Salcura DermaSpray Gentle Skin Nourishment Spray works wonders for soothing the redness and itchiness of the eczema on my baby’s delicate skin. It is safe to use on newborns and can be used up to 12 months of age. It contains no chemicals or steroids.
From 12 months of age the Salcura DermaSpray Intensive Skin Nourishment Spray can be used.
We use Salcura DermaSpray Intensive Skin Nourishment Spray in conjunction with Salcura Zeoderm Skin Repair Moisturiser which really helps to soothe and treat the dry skin, providing the best levels of moisture out of any of the other creams we’ve used. It’s wonderful for healing broken skin.
At bath time we use Salcura Bath Oil for babies by adding a few drops of oil into our baby’s bath water. It helps to moisturise the skin and no rinsing is required afterwards, as it creates a barrier over the skin helping to retain moisture.
As well as treating the eczema, we’ve found that keeping our baby in clothes that are 100% cotton and loose fitting help to make our baby more comfortable. And switching to the non bio Surcare sensitive skin laundry range for washing our clothes, has stopped any itchiness that was caused by harsh laundry detergents.
