UK Mum's! What is the best mild shampoo to use on a 1 year old with eczema?

My little boy has got mild eczema and up until now we have been using dentinox cradle cap shampoo. (not because he has got cradle cap, just because we didn't know what else to use!) We were told by the doctor that this was ok to use too.


I was just wondering what everyone else uses on their little ones with sensitive skin as i have just managed to get my little boys eczema under control so didn't want to make it worse again.


Thank you xx





P.s Tried Johnson's and made him get a rash.UK Mum's! What is the best mild shampoo to use on a 1 year old with eczema?
I have 2 boys w/ eczema and after our pediatrician recommended Aveeno a couple of years ago, we haven't used anything else. It's the best over the counter product available for eczema in my opinion. You can get the unscented baby body wash/ shampoo, I use it for my 11 month old and 4 year old. They also make oatmeal based products specifically for eczema and sensitive skin.

You need to try old fashion Ivory soap. It doesn't have all the additives in it and shouldn't cause a rash and at the same time it will clean the scalp. Use a wash rag to rub it in.
Honestly i would stick with the cradle cap shampoo, you know it doesn鈥檛 give him any irritation, so why risk trying something recommended on here by someone who may just be taking a guess!
Tescos sell 'Halos and Horns', which is free of many of the additives that can be a problem.
