I was cursed with extremely sensitive skin and am always applying some kind of moisturizer or cream, but Liam has it much worse. He has eczema and is super sensitive to anything that comes in contact with his skin. We can only use certain detergents, lotions and bath wash. Plus, the dry winter weather always dries out his skin, making his eczema even worse. When it's really bad, he scratches areas in his sleep and makes them bleed, making it more difficult for the areas to heal. When I heard about Neosporin Essentials, I jumped on the opportunity to give it a try!
How do we manage Liam's eczema? We must keep skin healthy, clean and free of flare-ups, but that is easier said than done. Neosporin Essentials products are great for the entire family and work well to make skin healthier and eczema-free! It's extremely important to treat the area where eczema is flaring up as soon as symptoms occur and, for the times in between flare-ups, it's important to continue taking good care of your skin. Neosporin Essentials are here to help!
Neosporin Moisture Essentials Daily Body Wash is gentle on sensitive and eczema-prone skin. We have often used oatmeal baths to help heal Liam's skin and lessen the itching. Neosporin Essentials Daily Moisturizing Cream actually contains colloidal oatmeal, which not only moisturizes and heals, but also relieve skin irritation and itching! This is especially important for those with eczema! In fact, Neosporin Essentials Daily Moisturizing Cream has actually been found to make skin visibly healthier within 3 days. For the time when flare-ups are at their worst and extremely itchy, Neosporin Eczema Essentials contains 1% Hydrocortisone cream to provide relief from itching and also works to moisturize skin! That's right, it doesn't more than just soothe the itching. It has been clinically shown to decrease redness, flaking and dryness while simultaneously visibly improve the health of your skin.

I love that Neosporin Essentials products are not only great for sensitive skin, but can also be used by the entire family. There are so many products out there that are specifically for adults or just for kids. For families like us who are on a budget, this can get so expensive. We can save money and all benefit from Neosporin Essentials when our skin needs some help!
