Keeping eczema under control with Cuticura Mildly Medicated Talcum Powder

For most parents, the daily routine of getting their little ones ready for bed is pretty straightforward. It may involve bath time, or story time, a bottle of warm milk and some cuddles. For us, it involves a vigorous routine of lathering Little Foxes skin in various creams each morning and evening to ensure his eczema doesn’t flare up. To keep it under control, and stop him from scratching in his sleep.

The trouble is when you think you’ve found the perfect combination of lotions and potions something will change. What once worked no longer takes effect and the flare-ups return. The one thing we try to avoid is the use of steroid creams, they aren’t a long-term solution, and can cause the skin to thin.

Right now we have a good routine with a great combination of prescribed products and we’re in control. In a bid to help ease the itchiness caused by his eczema and reduce scratching we’ve also been using Cuticura Mildly Medicated Talcum Powder. Little Fox suffers mostly from dry patches on his arms and legs, around his joints and his face.

We don’t usually use talcum powders on his skin as they can cause irritation and dry his skin out further. However, that hasn’t been the case so far with Cuticura Mildly Medicated Talcum Powder. It doesn’t dry the skin out where it’s already irritated and has helped retain moisture.
Our most recent flare-up led to the sore irritated skin on his lower back which he scratched in his sleep until it bled.

With damp open sores that needed to be cleaned and covered to prevent infection without drying out his skin completely. Creams meant the open sores were remaining damp and were not healing. As the sores were along the top of his nappy line it was difficult to let the area air dry long enough to heal. Using Cuticura Mildly Medicated Talcum Powder worked really well at keeping the area dry without removing moisture from his skin. And helping with the healing process.

We’ve never had a routine of bath and bed in our house. It was clear from being just a few months old that too many baths dried his skin out, leaving it sore and scaly. Not something you want to see on your precious newborn! But we’re finding his skin can tolerate a few more baths than usual these days. Which is great, because 3-year-olds get so messy sometimes they need more than a wipe down!

We’ve been using Cuticura Mildly Medicated Talcum Powder for two weeks now and have seen a visible difference in his eczema and the amount he scratches. The redness has reduced and itching is at a minimum. The open sores have healed nicely. Little Fox also loves applying Cuticura Mildly Medicated Talcum Powder himself, although we all end up wearing some! We’re going to continue use after each bath time to keep any patches of eczema soft and dry, reducing itching at bedtime.
