Review of Aveeno Eczema Therapy Care Kit

My middle son had been coughing fits lately, so we took him to the doctor to see what was up.  She took one look at him and said "allergies."  How did she know? In addition to the dark circle under his eyes, she found evidence of eczema; he had little rough patches on his stomach we had not noticed before.

Like most parents, we had dealt with eczema when our son was a baby and a toddler, but they can often grow out of these things.  Now that he was suddenly reactive to things in the environment, we were seeing his eczema come back.  I wanted to soothe the symptoms, but I'm not a fan of strong medications and steroids if we can help it.

We had always had good luck with the Aveeno products, even when he was a baby.  Now, they have a combo kit designed just for eczema relief and treatment, and I was happy to see that it offered a fairly comprehensive solutions to many of his symptoms.

The Aveeno Active Naturals Eczema Therapy Kit contains a two-step regimen that's easy for parents and kids to use.

  • Step 1: AVEENO® Eczema Therapy Bath Treatment (6 packets) is made of 100% pure colloidal oatmeal, a long recognized ingredient that relieves itching. We put it directly into his running bath water, and he can use it without fear of irritation. 
  • Step 2: Fragrance-free AVEENO® Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Cream (5 oz. tube) contains Colloidal Oatmeal, Humectants (which attracts and retains moisture), and Ceramide (works to replenish and maintain the skin’s protective barrier).  
The kit runs between $14-16 at your local retailer.

Two other great products that we've been using include the AVEENO® Baby Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Cream and the AVEENO® Baby Cleansing Therapy Moisturizing Wash.  Safe enough for the tiniest people, we like to use it on the older kids. (And even if you don't have Eczema, it does wonders for dry, winter skin.) These two products are under $8 at most retailers that sell baby products.
