Dove NutriumMoisture Body Wash - Who Knew It Was An Answer to Prayer?

As you know by now, if you are an avid reader of The "Cent"sible Sawyer, I do several reviews and give aways right here that I feel are a good fit for my blog and for the moms (and dads) who read it. When a product is right and I feel there are benefits not only to me but to my readers I am happy to pass it on. Such was the case when I was pitched a review and give away for Dove's new Nutrium Moisture body wash line.

You may not be aware that my six month old son recently had a BAD bout with eczema unless you follow me on facebook. He had a REALLY bad rash all over his face (it was only on his face), so bad that it made his face swell up! We thought he had some sort of allergic reaction but we couldn't figure out what it could be from since we hadn't changed ANYTHING... not detergents, not soap, not food, NOTHING. So, we took him to the doctor and she said it was really bad eczema and prescribed him a steroid cream.

Besides using the cream to make the rash go away we are also not to use any body washes, soap, or lotions with fragrance, and we are to apply a moisturizer such as Aquaphor to his face two to three times per day. "Great," I thought. I have a TON of baby products stockpiled in my bathroom cabinet that I can't use for the time being and the last thing I want to do is run out and purchase a new bottle of wash knowing that I have a zillion under the sink!

To my suprise, the UPS man was about to save the day! He delivered me a package with three bottles of Dove NutriumMoisture body wash - right to my door! One of the three bottles is for sensitive skin with no fragrance! Yippee! Problem solved. Isn't God good? He even takes care of the little things, huh?

The Dove NutriumMoisture body wash worked great. It doesn't irritate his delicate skin, it still smells great - even without fragrance - Judah smells *clean*. As you would expect from Dove, this body wash has lots of moisturizer in it so it left his skin feeling soft and smooth and it is great for the eczema problem. The great thing about this moisturizer is that it penetrates deep into the skin rather than just sitting on top of the skin.

I always laugh at this, but the other day my husband said can you get me the hand lotion on the end table. I went looked - no lotion. However, I did find a sample of Dove Conditioner. He was loving the stuff for his dry skin until he knew what it was. This stuff can be used for anything I guess.

Let me just warn you....Keep after it because in the winter time it can FLARE UP!!!! My son has this on the inside crease of the elbow and we do use the cream but we also use neo-sporin(spell?) when it's not too bad.

MY 3yr old use to suffer from this as well and we used aveeno baby wash and it worked great(just a little pricey though). A couple of years ago we ran out of the babywash and I had a ton of Johnson's buddies so I tried that and it has worked great as well and she still uses these soaps. Good Luck on this.

If you have a baby you must try the Skin Free skin care line. It has no fragrance, no petro chemicals, nothing but good, natural ingredients. I highly recommend the soap for baby eczema. It has been a life saver.

I agree with Michelle, "keep after it", and a little piece of advice concerning your son: DON'T LET HIM SCRATCH IT! I have ended up in the hospital several times for secondary infections caused from scratching :( I have been dealing with dishydrotic eczema (eczema on the hands and feet) for about 7 years. The dermatologist I went to also recommended the Dove sensitive skin, fragrance free product. It's been great for my eczema (when I use it) but I don't really care for the "mediciney scent" so I'm curious if the New Dove NutriumMoisture Sensitive Skin Body Wash smells like the original? I haven't seen the "new Dove" in our stores yet so if anyone can help I'd really appreciate it.

I feel for you, my daughter had a terrible case of eczema as a child, too! The good news: according to my dermatologist, if a child acquires it they will usually outgrow the condition by puberty. That was the case with her, once the hormones hit the rash cleared right up! You've got a long way to go, though, so glad you found something that helps!

My little girl has eczema as well. I'd love to try out the Dove wash for her - it's one of the few things I've actually not tried!
