Is there Eczema shampoo for children??

My daughter has a really dry scalp. The doctor says is psoriasis. Maybe if I find a shampoo for eczema it would help.

the dr told me to use t shampoo on my son. You just have to be careful cause it isnt made for kids, and will burn their eyes. I just used a wash rag for his eyes, and it really worked

my son has exczema and his dermatologist said to get AQUAPHOR baby. its a body wash and shampoo... it helps a lot. especially when you pair it with the Aquaphor creme. :)

I believe that Huggies also makes one, but we used the one with Pooh when my daughter had dry scalp.

Bummer .... water would be such an easy answer! And I just looked at Julia's scalp tonight .... not so hot .... wish there was a manual for these things.

Jacqui, my daughter drinks a LOT of water. Pretty much all day she has her sippy cup with water. I don't believe in giving my children a whole bunch of juice. Her scalp is dry but she's not itching as much.

How's your daughters water intake? When my daughter isn't drinking enough water, her scalp gets VERY dry .... I've never needed to use anything on it ... just try to get more fluids into her.

Okay, thanks soo much for the info. I will try just about anything to make things better. As soon as I find something that works I will update my daughter's progress! Thanks again.

Spectro Gel has a baby wash that you could probably use as a shampoo. I also used to rub olive oil on my son's head but he has short hair if she has long hair it may be harder to rub it in. Exczema can also be cause by a small food allergy so talk to you family doctor tosee if youcan get her tested. I hope this helps

Yeah, we live in a small town in the South and at our grocery store and at the closest Walmart they have a small bottle. I am not sre of the name but it is in a turqouise greenish colored bottle with winnie the pooh on it. I used it on my son and it worked really well. We alternated between that and aveeno natural shampoo. Worked wonders for Jordan
