I have an interesting story to go with this blog.
I've had ezcema since I was an infant. (Associated with my asthma unfortunately.) Well, my daughter has a mild case of ezcema, and of course as a parent I've researched, purchased and tried many things to control it. Hers is a very mild case, and for a time Extra virgin coconut oil did the job really well, but I have no idea what's happening this winter because it broke both of us out. (insert sad face here)
Well, I came across Dermasil lotion at my local Dollar Tree store and decided to test it out on my skin first. After a few days I gave it the ok and tried it on my two year old. I've been filling and refilling her hydro-cortisone cream for months now, and fortunately and surprisingly for once I haven't had too since I started using this lotion on her. :-) Her skin is super moisturized and soft with it. She isn't itching, and I haven't seen her scratching or any dry patches, or visible signs of rashes on her skin. Most of all she is not complaining. It was to the point where I was applying her prescribed cream every night and after every bath. :-/
Well, I told my mother one day in excitement about what I discovered and how it was working so well, and she swears that she told me about the lotion when my daughter was a few months old. She said that when I was a baby my doctor precribed Dermasil or Aveeno, and apparently at the time Dermasil was about $20 a bottle. :-O I did a little surfing and noticed that it's being sold online for quite the price. :-/ I'm very fortunate that the dollar store carries this brand. It's apparently made by doctors in a pharmeacutical lab, so I'm sure they had dry skin and other skin issues in mind when they created it. :-)
If you have sensitive skin, ezcema, or any other skin issues that other drugstore brands, or prescribed lotions werent solving, I urge you to give this lotion a chance. It's probably older than I am ( I didn't check) and I am 28, and it was being used on my skin about 26 yrs ago. LOL!
Review coming soon....
