Sun cream for eczema

Postby beffys » Tue Jul 14, 2009 7:09 pm

Can anyone recommend a sun cream for LO with eczema? Ella's skin has been great recently, but whenever we put sun cream on her it comes out in angry red blotches where her eczema has been on her arms and legs. We've used Nivea and tescos creams. Buying sun cream is quite expensive and just wondered if there are any hypoallergenic ones or more natural sun creams anyone can recommend that they use with no problems for their LOs who have skin conditions. Even better if anyone also has problems like this and has found a cream they use that doesn't cause such a nasty reaction. Obviously can't not use sun cream. :roll:

Harriet has eczema and the only suncream that we've been able to use is the Asda kids one.

Thanks. Will try if I can get to Asda soon. There isn't one nearby though. :(

We couldnt use sunscreen on our boys for years as their eczema was always really bad in the summer, with sore broken skin, so we couldnt put anything on them. So we used the sunsuits instead, and the legionnaire style sunhats which covered their ears and their hats, and kept them out of the sun when it was warmest.
