As a mom, there is nothing worse than having your Little One suffering with something. What is even worse, is trying every known remedy out there and nothing seeming to really work to relieve the issue for your Little One. In our household, the issue that has left me pulling my hair out for a remedy has been Eczema.
My Little One started developing Eczema when she was about 3 years old. It started with a reaction to chlorine in the local pools. Her skin would get so bad after being in the pool that she would blister and bleed. As soon as we realized that chlorine was causing the Eczema, there were no more pool visits to any pool that had chlorine in it. Only naturally cleaned water for us or those that combined the more natural methods with small amounts of chlorine.
We did not have the Eczema beat though. Soon everything was irritating my Little One’s skin…everything from hand sanitizer to the unknown!
We were then on a mission to try every cream and remedy possible. Some worked for awhile and then my Little One seemed to grow used to them and they would not be as effective. Some creams would sting her and she would be jumping up and down complaining. Some creams would relieve the itch, but not clear up the Eczema. Some remedies I was wary about because I was not sure what was really in the product!
For the last 3 years it has seemed that all we have been doing has been trying to stay ahead of the Eczema with my Little One. It has never cleared up at all, until now.
About a week ago, my Little One got yet another Eczema spot on her arm this time around. It was itching her and red and blistery, really not that bad of one in the scope of how bad the Eczema can get. This time in my toolbox of weapons against Eczema I had a few new products to try to throw at the Eczema.
The first product that we used was:
Product Description :
Works to relieve itch due to eczema Helps improve dryness, flaking and redness associated with eczema and minor skin irritations Fragrance-free Available in a 28g tubes

Apply sparingly to the affected area 2-4 times daily for a maximum of 7 days. Gently massage into skin.

Here is a few of the things that were going through my mind as always….
*I feel better that the product is from a well known, reputable company.
*I like that it is fragrance free as fragrances always make my Little One’s Eczema act up.
*It takes only a little bit and few treatments to work.
*It does not sting.
There is no better way to show you how amazing this product is other than showing you a photo. The photo shows you my Little One’s Eczema before the Polysporin Eczema Essentials Cream and after only two applications of once a day for two days. I tried blowing up the bottom picture that shows how clear the Eczema is, but the more I zoomed in, the less you could see anything so I had to leave it zoomed out and point out the spot.
All I have to say is that if you have an Eczema sufferer in your household, you have to try Polysporin Eczema Essentials cream. I finally feel like we have a solution to our Little One’s Eczema problem.
There are two other Polysporin Eczema products that you will want to check out as well to help keep control of the Eczema flare ups.
