I love online communities! For the most part, people are so generous with sharing information and there is always someone (friend or stranger) that has advice for whatever challenges you might be experiencing. I have seen many online discussions with desperate parents reaching out for advice on treating their little ones eczema. This was me 2 years ago. I ended up going to 4 different doctors who all gave different explanations as to what was wrong with my baby. Talk about frustrating! It turned out to be eczema and I learned more about the world of having kids with allergies … oh, how I should write a book!
Although eczema affects all ages, more than half of all eczema sufferers show signs within their first 12 months of life and 20 per cent of people develop eczema before the age of five. Whilst we treated the initial eczema diagnosis with medicated creams and a strict moisturising regime we have now eased off into a maintenance phase where we are mindful of triggers, moisturise and ideally treat our kids precious skin with natural products.
When we were approached to try a new cortisone-free solution that aims to bring natural relief to eczema sufferers, I was really excited. Novapel Eczema Cream is Australian made and owned and is professionally formulated with specific herbal ingredients traditionally used for the symptomatic relief and treatment of eczema by providing soothing, anti-inflammatory, anti-itch and hydration to the skin. As an added bonus, it’s suitable for nappy rash and skin conditions such as psoriasis, dermatitis and is perfect for sensitive skin! I love that it is free from harmful chemicals such as sodium lauryl sulphate, parabens, lanolin, propylene glycol and has no artificial fragrances or colours.
We were given a tube of Novapel Eczema Cream to try and I must say I am impressed, however, I feel it is important to note that the kids have very mild symptoms and we are using it when they do not have a nasty flair up. The cream smells “yummy” according to Alegría and feels really nice when applied. It wasn’t greasy and definitely alleviated the dryness on Alegría’s hands caused by playing with clay (a known trigger for kids).
We will definitely be using it as part of our eczema management plan going forward.
