For years my little one had eczema, which I treated with Aquaphor. It did not get better, and in fact, the rash seemed to spread everywhere. Then lo and behold, a friend told me that the lanolin from the Aquaphor irritates some children. I switched to Cera Ve. In a week, the eczema was gone. It has now been six months and he is eczema free. No more benadryl at night. No more cortisone creams. He can focus at school because he doesn't spend the time distracted by the itching. I am shocked at how good he looks. For me, stopping the Aquaphor and starting the Cera Ve completely changed his life.
