My daughter has sensetive skin & excema.We use Cetaphil to wash her(it's a super mild soap, got it at Walgreens)When she's out & dry, we either slather her with Eucerine lotion(again,super mild,again, at Walgreens)or Hydrocortizone....Good luck

I actually use dove white and curel unscented for my daughter. She reacts to most of the baby washes, unscented, natural or not. It can be frustrating, Also the only thing that helps itching is plain ol' hydrocortizone cream. ( Dr. recommended of course) not the ointment. Some days I have to put a thin layer over most of her body.   good luck

What has worked for my daughter with the dry skin was Burts Bees.  It smells good and  it lasts on her all day.  Its also a natural product so it doesnt have all those chemicals in it.  The have a body was as well (body and hair) and lotions.

Have you tried Aveeno Baby Lotion? My daughter has very dry skin and used to break out so bad her skin would crack and bleed. But I started bathing her in Aveeno Baby Wash and using the Aveeno Baby Lotion. I hope this helps - I know how frustrating it can be to see your child uncomfortable.
