Treating Eczema with my kids

Tip for Treating Eczema

Growing up, I remember seeing the signature orange bottle of GOLD BOND powder in my grandmother’s bathroom cabinet. Then as an adult in nursing school, I quickly learned to always have GOLD BOND healing lotion on me to prevent my hands from cracking after being washed all day. As you can imagine, GOLD BOND quickly became a go-to brand in my household.

A couple years ago my son started breaking out in a red, bumpy rash that he couldn’t stop itching. I remember bath time was the worst; his skin was extra delicate from being wet, and no matter how hard I tried to stop him, he’d scratch and the marks looked so deep! It was heartbreaking to hear him whine and cry about how itchy he was, no matter what lotions I used.

I was able to get an appointment to see his pediatrician within a couple of days, and within a couple of minutes into the exam, his pediatrician was able to tell me he had eczema. He said while the rash can be a nuisance, it was not a diagnosis to worry about. He recommended I get an anti-itch eczema cream at the pharmacy and with time I should see improvement.

I quickly ran to the lotion aisle of my local pharmacy, stopping at the GOLD BOND section out of habit and I was thrilled to see GOLD BOND® Ultimate Lotion Eczema Relief. GOLD BOND eczema relief lotion contains 2% colloidal oatmeal, 7 moisturizers and 3 vitamins to help relieve 5 symptoms of eczema. Plus, it is accepted by the National Eczema Association. 

 

Tips for treating eczema

We use it every night after baths, particularly on his legs and arms, where most of his irritation is and the eczema relief lotion has stopped the itch-scratch cycle.

I am so happy with how much his eczema symptoms have improved!  He’s no longer whining in agony as I fight with him not to itch.

GOLD BOND eczema relief lotion results from a clinical study of eczema sufferers revealed:

8 out of 10 saw and felt significant skin improvement in 2 weeks

8 out of 10 experienced significant relief of dryness, scaling, and roughness in 2 weeks 

9 out of 10 experienced significant relief of redness/irritation in 4 weeks 

GOLD BOND eczema relief lotion is available at all major mass, drug and food retailers, retailing for $9.99.
