The Cream That Finally Made Our Eczema Go Away

Updated on March 20, 2018

Wife, mom, blogger, entrepreneur, and long-time eczema sufferer. I'm happy to share information about something that finally works for me.

My Eczema Story

I’ve had eczema on and off my whole life, so it came as no surprise when my son also became plagued with the uncomfortable itchiness. As uncomfortable as eczema is for me, it was almost more agonizing to watch my son suffer through his discomfort.

So, I’ve tried everything. Every cream, lotion, and steroid. Bath bombs, essential oils, bathing, and not bathing. EVERYTHING.

A few months ago we were visiting a friend, and she spotted the eczema on my hand. She gave me a jar of lotion and told me to give it a try. I had never seen it before, so of course I put it right on. What did I have to lose?

I’m going to cut straight to the chase—this stuff WORKS. I also want to make it clear that I’m not being paid to write this article.

No Sting

The first sign that this cream was amazing was that it didn’t sting when I put it on. My hands were really dry, so even putting something as mild as Nivea would have made them burn a bit. But this stuff didn’t. I put it on before bed, and the next morning I actually wasn’t itchy, as I normally would have been. You could still see the redness and my hand wasn’t perfectly smooth, but the discomfort was gone.

Gone Within a Month

Needless to say, I ordered my own jar the next day and started using it on myself and my son (his eczema was worse).

I had to be vigilant about using it, but within a month our eczema was gone! A month may seem like a long time, but I’m telling you, my son had patches of eczema that had been present for over a year. Even cortisone cream wasn’t keeping it away.

So, if you’ve got eczema—or more importantly a child or baby that does—I highly, highly, highly recommend you give this stuff a try.

More Information About This Cream

Here’s some things to know about the cream ahead of time:

  • One of the main ingredients is raw shea, so the lotion will actually be grainy—it almost seems like a scrub. Don’t worry, it’s not a bad batch. It’s supposed to be that way. As you rub, it will smooth out into a cream. If you’re putting it on a really sensitive spot, you can rub it in your fingers or hands first until it’s smooth. I’ve also read about people heating it up a bit to melt the chunks, but I’ve never actually tried that myself.

  • It’s sold as a lotion for babies, but if you’re an adult with eczema like me, don’t be discouraged! It will still help you. And as always, I would test a small spot on your baby before going crazy. My son has been fine with it, but you never know! Our little ones can be really sensitive to things.

  • This stuff is oily. Like, the oiliest lotion I’ve ever used. Which is ironic because the jar actually says that it’s not greasy. But it really doesn’t matter because it’s so effective. Just try to use it when you can handle the oiliness (before bed was perfect for us...especially under my son’s pajamas).

Good luck with your eczema! I hope this lotion can help you out like it’s helped us.

      Hi Nikki,

      Thanks for sharing, just to ask does it cure eczema completely or you have to live with it?

      Thanks

      Yes, this stuff is working for me. It’s called Raw Shea Butter Chamomile and argon oil baby Eczema therapy. My hands are at there worst I’ve ever seen and this cream is really soothing. I was itching my hands a lot but I’ve stopped poking at my hands and put this cream on. I am seeing results. My hands are still rough, but I notice the redness is going away. I keep this stuff on thick. Hope this helps someone. Eczema sucks.

      I have tried this cream on my baby girl when she was 8 months old or so. I saw tiny red bumps appearing on her back and torso. So I stopped using it. Now she's 3 year old and still suffering from an itchy skin. And we are back On the natural therapy like oils and oatmeal baths.. On reading your story I wish I could try this again now..

      Shea Moisture has great products, so I am positive this will work very well. I honestly just use raw Shea butter that cost me $6.99 at my local beauty supply store. It's very chunky and you have to break it down within the palm of your hands or you can put it in the microwave for a few seconds to soften it. I've had eczema all my life and I just found things that works for me. Diary products and stress are the top factors for my flare ups. Also, the soaps that you use to bathe with, I can not use Dove or Irish springs, but Zest works really well for me. Its all about testing different things out and stick to what works for you.

      I personally love this line of products! That said some people have sensitivities to shea butter, nickel & other ingredients that would cause more of a flare up. Patch testing & bloodwork, to reveal triggers are advised, and possible diet changes as well.

      I think it's Shea Moisture Skin Therapy, Baby Raw Shea Butter. There is a link for it right above where it says "gone within a month". I have never used this product but Shea Moisture is the only brand of lotion I use and my favorite is the baby lotion with frankincense and myrrh. It's super thick and doesn't come through the pump but it's awesome! My niece has bad eczema and she was on vacation with us last month. The first day there, she cried at the beach because the salt water and sunscreen burned her skin so bad (she is super dark complicated and had never had a sunburn so the crying was not related to a sunburn happening). At night, before bed we started putting the Shea Moisture Baby lavender lotion on her. We went on a boat tour and just to the pool for 2 days and by the 4th day when we went back to the beach, you would have never guessed the water ever burned her skin! I love all of their products and they are made from organic ingredients so that makes it even better! They are available at most stores like target, Walmart, drug stores etc. Walgreens often has buy one get one 50% off!

      I was always heartbroken too when people would ask what was wrong with my son's skin. I really think you should try this stuff. I wasn't exaggerating when I said he had eczema for years and this was the first stuff to clear it up. Luckily you really only need a little bit so 1 jar will last you way more than a month. I would start 2 a day and see what you think! You can always apply more throughout the day if you want. Good luck :)

      Is it really helpful? My son is also suffering from eczema . It really makes me sad, every time people asks me "what's wrong with him?" - seeing his skin full of patches. I have tried a myriad of creams without success. It would be great to know if there is something which would really help him from itching . Exactly how many jars would he need for 1 month and how many times per day I have to apply?
