Eczema + Food Allergy Alerts For Kids

My children have sensitive skin and this has been a struggle for some time. Not all, but most have Eczema, Atopic Dermatitis. Eczema consists of dry scaly and itchy skin, peeling and redness. The main visible complaint is behind the knees and on the arms but it can also appear in other areas. We’ve had to change things like dish soap, laundry detergent and fabric dryer sheets to ones from brands like all Liquid Laundry Detergent, Free Clear for Sensitive Skin, 46.5 Fluid Ounces, 31 Loads or Arm & Hammer Liquid Perfume and Dye Free Dual He, 50 Fluid Ounce These brands in particular carry a selection for sensitive skin, are free of dyes and perfumes. These changes have prevented my kids from getting major flareups, getting irritated and ultimately itchy. Their dermatologist has recommended over the counter hydrocortisone and brands like CeraVe, Aveeno and Eucerin, to name a few. And none have worked. I’ve also tried prescription creams, but even using these have not given us any results. So, I will share with you what has brought my sensitive skin little’s some relief, all from the brand TruKid.

I also have one of my kids with food allergies. In the beginning of each school year his pediatric allergist will give us new Epi-Pen’s to have. We receive two, one Epi-Pen we will keep and the other we will give to the school nurse.

Food Allergies
⇒ Epi-Pen – We have attached to the zipper of our diaper bag, these pull charms let’s everyone know that there’s an Epi-Pen inside. These have come in handy say on our trips to Disney when we may forget to let security know there’s an Epi-Pen inside. EPIPEN INSIDE Medical Alert Black 1 inch Zipper Pull Charm

He’s young, yet has responsibly learned the foods he can’t eat. I still however have him wear allergy alert bands, he wears two, one that read “PEANUT ALLERGY” and a second one on the other wrist that reads, “FISH ALLERGY.” He wears these all the time, even during bath and bed time. Although the bands I have are no longer available, these from AllerMates are my next option if whenever mine need to be replaced. This one for peanut allergy AllerMates Kids Medical Wristband – Peanut Children’s Medic Alert Allergy Awareness Bracelet (2 Pack) or this one Allermates Kids Allergy Health Alert Multi Charm Wristband that you can customize to show your child’s specific allergies using charms.

  1. I like those allergy wrist bands- smart! The steroid creams never work for me either and I get outbreaks around my eyes which have thin sensitive skin anyway. I bought 100% pure aloe and apply it morning and night. It is 98% gone. Sometimes I put a thin coat of Vaseline in the corners of my eyes before bed so my weepy eyes don’t irritate the eczema. If the eczema eruption is bad (like when I ingest dairy) then I take a Claritin.

    1. Yes! They’ve helped remind my son not to have those foods – especially ideal for school. He wears them all the time, pool, shower, everywhere. I have to take Zyrtec daily for allergies. But haven’t got a handle on my eczema – do have a dermatologist appt coming up. The last time I went I was pregnant and there was nothing they could do! 😟 I’m going to try aloe vera, never thought of using that other than on sun burns. 👍🏼😊

      1. Yes, they had me lined up for a ton of shots not knowing if they’d give me results or not. Uhmmm, I didn’t go! I’ll take the Aloe over shots 😂 Yes, I will let you know! I know it may take some time to see results, hope it doesn’t take too much time for me 🙏🏽😊 I’ve been applying working hands by O’Keeffe’s. It works, but I think my eczema is still a little too much for it. It’s for extremely dry hands, etc. Have you tried that?

      2. No, I haven’t tried it. My 6 month old has it behind her ears and Aloe works to keep it soft and moist. Sometimes I add in a little vitamin E oil. I have only had eczema around my eyes and my knee…so far anyway….

      3. It’s worked for my kids. My oldest daughter uses the shampoo, conditioner and body wash and so far it’s prevented flare ups and has cleared her skin. Her pediatric dermatologist have recommended Eucerin and Cetaphil – non have worked.
