Eczema Relief with AVEENO® ACTIVE NATURALS®

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for AVEENO® Eczema Therapy. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Both of my children have suffered from eczema since they were infants. I remember going to the doctor often because they would make themselves bleed from scratching so much. The doctors would prescribe a steroid to help calm the flare-ups but I did not want to rely on that. I did some research and found that AVEENO had products that would help those with eczema. When used as a regular regimen, AVEENO® Eczema Therapy products (adult and baby) help break the cycle of irritated skin leaving skin feeling hydrated and soothed.

Before my children, I had no idea what eczema was as no one in my family had any skin issues. When my son was born, we noticed within a few months that his skin was getting these red, dry patches on the folds of his skin. We also noticed that they bothered him as he kept itching the area. When we took him to his check up, the pediatrician told us it was eczema. Since I was breastfeeding, he told me to avoid certain foods. We eventually found out he was allergic to milk, eggs, and dust mites. I avoided it all since it aggravated his skin – causing flare-ups. We made a lot of changes to help his skin.

1. We changed the products we used on him
2. Changed detergent to sensitive (fragrance-free)
3. Changed the clothes we bought for him to 100% cotton
4. We kept a humidifier in his room
5. We kept his room free of dust (since he is allergic to dust mites)

These are some of the changes we made, which made a huge difference.

What is surprising is that, more than 30 million people in the U.S. live with eczema. Those who suffer with eczema, and their loved ones, know that discomfort, itchiness and dry skin can be a daily struggle and often interferes with everyday life. And while there is no cure for eczema, in most cases, with the proper regimen, symptoms can be managed. Recommended by dermatologists and pediatricians, AVEENO® Eczema Therapy and AVEENO® Baby Eczema Therapy products are clinically shown to help soothe the four symptoms of eczema – itch, roughness, dryness, irritation.

I am happy to say that my son’s skin has never been better. We’ve really done our part in making sure his skin is well moisturized. He loves taking a bath with the AVEENO Baby Eczema Therapy Soothing Bath Treatment. I know it’s for babies but it has worked really well at soothing his skin when he starts feeling itchy. We use the same thing on our daughter. The Active Natural Colloidal Oatmeal really gives his irritated, sensitive skin some relief when he needs it. We have noticed that the summer months are more difficult for his skin but we moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Aveeno has a thick, creamy consistency that helps the skin stay hydrated. AVEENO Active Naturals products have been our go-to product for all our eczema needs from the very beginning!

Do you have a child or know someone who suffers from eczema?

    I really love Aveeno products. They do a great job of protecting and moisturizing skin and they smell amazing. I’ve used the moisturizing cream for my stepson who has always suffered from eczema. It is getting a little bit more manageable now that he’s older, but the dry winter months are always the toughest for him,

    I have had a huge problem with eczema when my daughter was little which reminds me I need to get some more Aveeno because by far they are the best products for dry skin and I love them.

    Great post on the fight against eczema! Man that stuff can get out of control if left untreated, I’ve seen some terrible eczema cases so it must be great to find a decent remedy.

    I love Alveeno products!! They work well and are sensitive to my eczema skin. My DD was so sensitive when she was a baby it was the only product I could use for both body and bum cream.

    I haven’t used Aveeno products before and this is my first time to hear that they have something for eczema. I have friends who suffer from eczema and this skin condition can really be bothersome and even frustrating. I would really recommend this product to my friends along with the tips you mentioned in this post. 🙂

    Wow, awesome! I use Aveeno products and I didn’t realize they had a baby line. My son is mixed and has much dryer skin than I do. I’m Italian, so I run on the oily side. I like Aveeno because it moisturizes without making me too greasy. I’ll have to try this out for my son too.

I would have to go to the doctor to get special medication and my skin was always flaking off. it turned black and looked like i had some disgusting disease. i wish there was an easy to use product like this when i needed, but i am happy for all of the people that this will help!

    My children have also suffered from sensitive skin and one has eczema. I have loved all the Aveeno products I have tried on my children. I’ll have to look out especially for the Aveeno Baby Eczema treatment. That seems like a fantastic product to help clean up my toddler’s skin!

    Glad I got to come back and see this now that it’s up! I love Aveeno products and they’re so great for my skin. I didn’t not know they even had a line dedicated to children and babies. If it anything like their regular line I am sure that it is fantastic!

    I can certainly relate to the hardships of dealing with eczema as my youngest struggles with this aggravating skin condition. When treating it we do not prefer to use harsh chemicals and tons of products. I love the fact that this moisturizes and calms the itch without a bunch of excess grease.

    I have used Aveeno Active Naturals because my skin is really dry. I think it is a great product and if it were more affordable, I would definitely get it all of the time 😀

    I love Aveeno products they are such high quality. Eczema is such a big issue especially for people of color, it’s nice to know there is an over the counter lotion that can help people dealing with it,
