eczema/hypopigmentation

by Alexis
(Colorado)

Hello,

My daughter has had eczema since she was about 2 months old. She used to have it really bad so I was told to put a steroid cream on her, so I did. Now she is 14 months old and her eczema is cleared up but she still gets a little. But what I really noticed is her skin looks blotchy. Is there a cream to help her eczema and help restore her skin color?

Hello Alexis,

Actually, lots of parents are concerned about the ongoing side effects of steroid use and turn to more natural products to assist their children's eczema symptoms. Unfortunately, there are a number of steroid/hydrocortisone side effects to be wary of. These side effects include: thinning and discoloration of the skin, easy bruising, permanent dilation of certain blood vessels, burn marks on skin, itchiness, perioral dermatitis, liver and kidney damage, a weakened immune system, increased acne or facial hair, menstrual problems and impotence. Not only this, but steroid use almost always produces a "rebound effect" of the very symptoms you are trying to get rid of. I would recommend first cleansing with our FACE & BODY WASH as this is an important step in caring for the skin and then apply our MY DAUGHTER'S HAND & BODY THERACREAM when needed. You mentioned that her skin looks blotchy or may have hypopigmentation. While there is very little that can "guarantee" restoration of skin color, providing the skin with health building ingredients can do much for the texture, health and even tone of the skin.

Please keep me posted on your daughter's progress.

Warm Regards,

Nanette

Hello Evelyn,

Many moms ask the same question. However, you should know that zinc oxide is an inorganic compound with the formula ZnO. It usually appears as a white powder, nearly insoluble in water. The powder is used in a wide range of cosmetics and personal care products including makeup, nail products, baby lotions, bath soaps and foot powders as well as used as an additive into numerous materials and products including plastics, ceramics, glass, cement, rubber (e.g., car tires), lubricants,[2] paints, ointments, adhesives, sealants, pigments, foods (source of Zn nutrient), batteries, ferrites, fire retardants, first aid tapes, etc. ZnO is present in the Earth's crust as the mineral zincite; however, most ZnO used commercially is produced synthetically. Personally, I would not recommend baby products with zinc oxide in them as most are synthetic and can actually cause an irritation or rash from its use. I believe in natural products with health building ingredients as these will nourish and repair the skin so well.

Please let me know if you have any other questions Evelyn.

Warm Regards,
Nanette
