It is not a secret that Broxton has been dealing with eczema since he was born. We are lucky that it isn't always an issue, but it does flare up from time to time. Mostly when it is really cold and his skin gets dried out, or when it is really hot, he gets flare-ups where the knees and elbows bend. We have tried many products and some work, while others make him scream in pain. I don't have eczema, so I have no idea what it feels like, but I know that I hate watching him suffer. We ran out of the product that we had been using and I went to find another. I could not locate it, so I asked the local pharmacist what they would recommend. She ended up pointing me to CeraVe and said that it was really great. I read on the packaging that it was dermatologist recommended. I ended up buying it (it was on sale) and figured we would give it a try.
After bath that night, I busted out the CeraVe cream and started putting it on Broxton. Normally he is crying or saying it burns, but he let me put this on, with no issues. He actually commented that it felt really good and wanted us to use this on him every night. Each night as he gets ready for bed, he asks for his cream and we apply it to his arms and legs. This is the first (that I can remember) that he actually REQUESTS to be put on. The pack that I bought was actually a combo with 2 jars.... So when we started running low on jar one, he was quick to point out that we needed to go ahead and get another jar, so we would not have an issue in finding it. When he saw I had a back up jar, he was so excited.
When we get products for review, he really could care less (unless it is a new toy or something) but when the latest came in... He was so excited!
We were sent the CeraVe cream that he LOVES and we were also sent their newest product, the hydrocortisone anti-itch cream. We have not tried it yet, but as soon as I see the eczema flare up, you better believe we will be trying it out!
