I add a dab of vaseline to it when I apply and it feels the best on my skin. I would highly recommend trying it because if it works, I think you'll like it.

To be clear, it will not heal the eczema or make significant changes or improvements with it, it's just a moisturizer so your skin feels better. I still haven't found a longterm solution to fix eczema. The best thing i can suggest is to go gluten and dairy free, limit red meat consumption, and literally drink 8 cups of water every day and remove sugar from your diet as much as possible.
My eczema flares up in the winter time... I'm fine in the summer. I'm think it's due to mostly dehydration but I'm not quite sure anyone.

I'm using the thing called Melkfett... Essentially petroleum jelly with vitamin e enriched and it was working ok... The effect hasn't been helping me as it late.

Let me know if have any other things to try.. I wouldn't mind trying a few new things

I believe it also has significantly more ceramides than other body moisturizers which is one of their big selling points. I haven't looked at all the others, but I believe it's one of their selling points as opposed to others that have high concentrations of mineral oil for a similar purpose.

It does have petrolatum but not as much as others.

I bought the life brand from shoppers drug mart which is supposed to be the same but a bit cheaper.
It wasn’t the same, and it made me break out.

Absolutely the best moisturizer I’ve used, highly highly recommend Cerave. Yes you can use on face and of course body as well. Amazing deal and 539g will last a long time.

Wow, I envy your only winter flare ups...

Anyway, if you want something that's more of a natural healing cream these are the two I always recommend to mild eczema suffers and they work most times for them.

1. Organic Eczema Relief - You can buy it from whole foods or anywhere online, well.ca has it. I usually use it in the morning before I go to work or before I go to bed.

2. Black Ointment Propolis - There's a local store in my area where I can buy it from, but below is the product. This one is quite tricky to use becaues it smells, A LOT. I wouldn't say it smells bad, but it has a very strong smell that people will be able to smell. I wore it work once and people knew I had something on, so now I only put it on at home

If I were to choose only one, I would recommend the Black Ointment as it seems like it's the most effective at healing my skin naturally. Unfortunately, I have to combine it with steroid creams, but it sounds like your skin may benefit from simply using it.

I try tons of products and most of them don't work for me, but the cerave, vaseline, and the honey creams above seem like they're the best combo for me. I would seriously give them a try if you're serious about trying to fix your eczema naturally.

Good luck!

Interestingly I felt the life brand one was quite similar. The textur is slightly different, but I usually buy the life brand because it's cheaper on average. I'm sorry it made you break out. Goes to show how sensitive each person is to different creams.

SDM has the pump version of this volume to be around 18 dollars after 20x points. Unless you can get employee pricing or senior discount plus 20x points, Costco discounted price is a better deal, especially with the additional tube being handy on road.

Lots left at the Beacon Hill location in Calgary, all in the pallets by the front. I didn't pick any up because I've started using the Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream for face and body (for dry to very dry skin). It's currently in stock for about $14.50 at Costco, and it's been amazing for me so far. It's fragrance and paraben free as well. I've tried CeraVe before and I found it was a little too light for me and did not retain moisture after a few hours. This variation of Cetaphil has helped calm down irritation and redness on my skin, and doesn't feel too sticky after application (in my opinion). I have super sensitive skin that reacts quite poorly to a lot of skincare products, so I'm stoked to have found one that works for me.

It's due to lack of vitamin D. I've had severe eczema in 2005 and left my face scarred. Since then I've been taking vit d regularly and it has stopped 99% of eczema from returning. The times when I haven't taken it for a while which is rare, it comes back at random areas on my body

Is it compareable to lac hydrin or am lactin?

Someone I know was recommended La Roche Posay Lipikar AP+ by an allergist when encountered eczema and allergy prone skin redness.

When bought at 20x at SDM, price is a bit reasonable.


Will try this one at Costco.

I tried both (Lipikar & Cerave, many times) and I like the Cerave better on my eczema, but that's a personnal opinion! I use glaxal base out of the shower and cerave the other time. Seems the work pretty well for me.

I think it varies from person to person, but Galaxal does not work on my eczema.

I’ve tried many brands and Gold Bond works for a short time, but Flexitol (the extremely dry skin one) is by far the most effective and long lasting.

Will have to look for samples of Cerave to compare.

In the wintertime the air gets extremely dry. Cold air can't hold as much moisture as warm air, so as it warms the relative humidity of the air drops. That means the air in your home gets dry, and the air outside gets dry as it warms as it touches your skin. This strips moisture from your skin. If you have a very effective barrier to keep moisture in your skin, and your skin tends to produce a lot of moisture, then your skin can handle it. If it tends to lack moisture, or the moisture isn't protected by an effective barrier, then it'll get quite dry. Some people can handle more dryness than others without undue irritation, while others can get eczema flareups.

So the best way to address this dryness is to try to hit all parts of it - start by boosting moisture with a bath or shower, then immediately following the bath of shower support your skin's barrier with a moisturizer that contains material that keeps the water from escaping. When you clean your skin, use a mild skin cleanser only as anything stronger will strip your skin's barrier, and don't use anything abrasive which can irritate your skin.

One thing that's common is for people to shower every day with harsh cleansers that strip oil from skin - the skin then gets dry, then the skin's response is to increase oil production, ending up with skin that has too much oil and not enough water. Instead of doing that, a daily shower but only using a full-body cleanser every other day, using moisturizer every day, etc will keep skin moisturized without excessive oil.

vivibaby wrote: Anything for lips with eczema that breaks out with everything?
When I had cracked lips that would not heal, the only relief I could find was LaRoche posay cicaplast balm. It's $10 at shoppers I went through 4 of them. They didn't heal me, but they kept the redness down and soothed it so I could live in relative peace. The problem was actually fixed when I used protopic, a non steroid prescription cream for my eczema that's safe to use on face (allegedly). If helped me a lot as I had problems on my eyelids that I did not want to put steroids on.
