PARENTS have praised a ‘miracle’ cream that they swear cleared up their daughter’s terrible eczema for the first time.
Baby Nola, just 13 months, suffered from the itchy skin condition all over her arms and face since the day she was born.
After trying many lotions and moisturisers, Nola’s despairing mum Emily Harris decided to give a £7.99 cream a try.
Within days the skin condition had cleared up Nola’s eczema, she said.
“I haven’t seen her skin this clear since she was a newborn – it’s amazing!” she said.
Eczema is a common skin condition that causes patches of skin that are itchy, cracked and sore.
The most common form of the condition, known as atopic eczema, affects one in five children and one in ten adults in the UK, according to the NHS.
The mum had used Balmond’s Skin Salvation on her daughters sore skin.
The balm has been dubbed ‘ a miracle in a jar ‘ by some users.
One happy shopper wrote: “My 4 years old started to have pretty bad eczema on his face, neck hands and ears.
“I was getting a bit anxious trying different lotions and even cortisone and nothing works.
“Yesterday I decided to apply the lotion only on his neck to try it out.
“His neck was, extremely dry, had red patches all over, it was painful and itchy.
“But after applying this lotion overnight he woke up with nothing on his neck.
“It was like he never had eczema.”
Another user with eczema said: “I came across this cream in roughly my late 20s early 30s and have been using it for many years now, and it’s the first one that has really helped.”
How to best treat eczema in children
There’s no cure for the skin condition, but there are several ways in which you can reduce your child’s symptoms.
The main treatments for atopic eczema are:
- moisturisers – used every day to stop the skin becoming dry
- topical corticosteroids – creams and ointments used to reduce swelling and redness during flare-ups
As well as using treatments for eczema, experts advise other things you can help your child do to help ease symptoms.
- try not to scratch (anti-scratch mittens, keeping nails short and keep skin covered)
- Avoid triggers (heat, itchy fabrics, detergents)
- dietary changes (some foods, such as eggs and cows’ milk, can trigger eczema symptoms, but see a GP before making significant chances to your child’s diet)
