« on: January 01, 2011, 19:14:56 pm »
My 5 month old has v bad eczema and we try to manage it the best we can.

We run a second rinse cycle when washing Dylan's clothes, just to make sure that all traces of detergent are gone. :)

Liquid soap flakes - no detergent at all - cleared my LOs eczema right up (along with zero detergent in bath and skin creams too)

If your LO has a contact reaction to detergent, an extra rinse won't help - it can take several non detergent washes to get rid all traces of (for example) SLSs, which are a very common irritant

we were told by the dermotologist hv extra rinses cleared it all off

though tbh she was parp, told me intollerencies dont exist and you only have an allergy if you go into anfalactic shock.
