Treat Precious Skin With Exederm - Product Review & Giveaway.

Thanks to a campaign through Family Review Network I was able to review a product by a company called Exederm.

Over the past 6.5 years we have learned a lot about Eczema in my house. My son suffers from it and at times I don't know how he functions. Seeing him scratch is a normal occurrence, Benedryl and Hydrocortison is something we ALWAYS have to have in stock.

Eczema is a dry, irritated skin that can be triggered by irritants, allergens, stress, heat or sweating. My son has had it since he was 2 months old. It started on his eyebrows, moved to his scalp and now he has it everywhere. He has many irritants and we take great care in making sure his skin stays hydrated. In the winter we use loads of moisturizer and a humidifier in the house due to the dryness of the wood stove, heat and fireplace. Dressing him in winter clothes and then sending him to a too hot classroom is also a problem. Let's put it this way, he suffers all the time! The vicious cycle of eczema is Itch-Scratch-Inflammation. No very fair is it?

As soon as my son saw them he said, "those are for me!"

My Opinion In A Nutshell: We have tried each and every one and in my opinion, there is really no need to try another. Because my son scratches his skin so hard, he breaks the skin and sometimes putting the necessary cream on him is a problem. It stings and makes him more itchy on top of the complaining about it hurting. There hasn't been a single one of these products that have hurt him. In fact, this is the first product that he has ever brought over to me and asked me to put on him.
