My son has eczema on the face as well as arms and legs. We will be on vacation in Mexico for a week, where he will be in the sun as well as water (pool and ocean) a lot. Last year, we used regular sunscreen and his eczema had flared up.
Can you please advise us on a waterproof sunscreen? I have heard good things about Vanicream, but it doesn't seem to be waterproof.
Thanks

Eczema is a term of one condition that the skin is irritated, itchy, inflamed, and even broken skin. It is also referred to as atopic dermatitis, the term for broad range of skin condition that generally manifest as chronically inflamed and extremely skin.

Atopic dermatitis begins at any age, but this is not common. 90% of individuals who suffer from atopic dermatitis develop the disorder before 5 years of age. Eczema commonly seen in infants and children.

The bothersome thing of eczema during evening and nighttime, causing disruptions to sleep.

The appearance of Eczema is dry and prone to become scaly rather than wet and encrusted.

The skin sores are dry and red, and may be opened by persistent itching, and also by unconsciously scratching during bedtime.

Irritation and opening of sores may easily lead to infect+ion and scarring, which results in long term physicals. Scary!!! For those who really care about their skin conditions.
