You won't find a bubble bath that is suitable for children with eczema as its the ingredient that makes the bubbles that usually causes the problems.

You need to avoid products with sodium laureyl/laureth (sp!) as its an irritant.

My son had terrible eczema as a baby and we had to wrap him in bandages from 6 months old. I found a range at boots that said it was for eczema sufferers but when i showed it to the eczema nurse she said it was unsuitable because of the ingredients.

I now use creams, shower gel, handwash etc from the health food shops. Its expensive but Kians eczema has almost gone and he only has occasional flare ups.

I've bought Allergenics baby bath (from health shop) for this baby in the hope it might limit skin problems.

i have eczema and i put oats in a mesh bag oats are naturally reallly good for moisturizing skin, as for making the bath fun lots of toys might be a better idea than bubble bath...

you could always color the water with a dash of food dye

awww Bubbs is still a little young. Give it a few months and playtime should start, lots of toys help. If there are bubbles LO wont be able to see the toys, think of it that way

Infaderm also do a bubble bath. This is fine on my LOs skin, i would try things, it's the only way to find out whether they are ok or not. Providing you LOs skin isn't too sensitive that is. See you DR and he will be able to give you Oilatum Jr on prescription. It is an oil you put into the bath.

My son has also an itching problem.It is due to food allergy(food that are rich in protien). I need substitution of his daily bath soap,I am using now lactacyd, may be that is one of the causes.
