It could be good news for eczema sufferers, as one woman says a moisturiser which is specially made for babies has completely 'cured' her daughter's skin condition.
The mum has called the £3.99 ($5.56) cream a 'miracle' after it appears to have cleared up her little girl's painful eczema.
Twenty-three-year-old Paige Sweeney has spent two years taking her daughter to various doctors and dermatologists and trying different steroid creams and antibiotics but she could find nothing that worked.
Despite trying everything the doctor recommended, Evie-Rae was still getting the painful rashes around her wrists, mouth and the backs of her legs.
The condition was so bad that Evie-Rae was waking up every night and scratching her skin until it bled. Paige was out shopping one day when she spotted Childs Farm baby moisturiser in Boots and decided to give it a shot.
The online product description explains that the moisturiser is suitable for newborns and upwards, and has been dematologist and paediatrician approved as 'suitable for sensitive and also eczema-prone skin'.
Within a week, Evie-Rae's eczema had apparently disappeared, with Paige telling the Daily Mail: "Within a matter of days I could see her skin starting to clear up. I couldn't believe it."
She also reckons the NHS could save a fortune by offering the cheap cream on prescription.
In a post on Facebook, Paige wrote: "Anybody that knows me and my daughter will know the trouble we have had with her eczema and allergies.
"We have tried every single steroid cream and moisturiser but nothing works. We see the dermatologist every eight weeks for two and half years and still no improvement.
"Was in Boots and came across this cream and bath range (Childs Farm) thought I would give it a go and look at the improvement in her skin in a week! [sic]"
Evie-Rae has been using the cream every day and her eczema still hasn't made a comeback.
Paige isn't the only one impressed with the 'miracle' cream. On the Childs Farm website, there are many other glowing testimonials for the product.
One reviewer, Anne, said: "My son's skin had been steadily getting worse, so dry, red and itchy with sores, he was quite miserable as the itching was so bad. I tried everything and nothing worked except hydrocortisone.
"Then I read about this cream and thought I've nothing to lose so I managed to get some and from the first application I noticed a difference; he didn't scratch as much in the night and his skin was calmer in the morning.
"Now after a week the difference is amazing his skin isn't as dry and red and the sores have all but disappeared. He doesn't scratch as much at all. I am just amazed at this cream and so happy I've found it."
Another person, Sarah, wrote: "My baby has had really dry sensitive skin since she was born after using the moisturiser for 2 days I noticed a huge difference her skin has never felt so soft. This stuff is amazing!"
