A Nottingham mother has found what mothers are desperate to find: the cure for eczema, their child’s nightmare skin condition. Paige Sweeney, 23, spent almost two years trying to find something that could help her little girl Evie-Rae, three, and it’s a £3.99 cream. This condition is very common and affects young babies and adults as well. Mothers spend thousands of dollars trying to find a cream that suits their kid’s skin. Every eczema type is different and sometimes, nothing will work.
After dermatologists couldn’t find the cure for this condition of Evie’s, her mother decided to try the £3.99 Childs Farm Baby Moisturiser. And it worked!
Describing it as a “miracle cream”, Paige told MailOnline: “Within a matter of days I could see her skin starting to clear up. I couldn’t believe it.”
This is little Evie-Rae pictured before applying the cream. Her mother said: ‘The NHS could save a fortune if they put it on prescription’.
Eczema is a condition that causes the skin to become itchy, red, dry and cracked. Atopic eczema is more common in children, often developing before their first birthday. However, it may also develop for the first time in adults.
The toddler would wake up every night, scratching herself until she bled, her mother explained to the media. Evie-Rae spent hours in doctor’s offices, and she was being prescribed a range of antibiotics and steroid creams, but her symptoms remained. Painful rashes continued to flare up around her mouth, on her hands and in the creases at the back of her knees.
Paige recalled: ‘I’ve tried everything in an attempt to help Evie-Rae. She has had eczema since she was born, then when she was five weeks old she was diagnosed with a milk allergy.
The Notthingham-based mother noticed this cream on the shelves at her local Boots and decided to try it out.
The £3.99, dermatologist-approved cream, contains active ingredients grapefruit, shea butter and tea tree oil, which are soft, natural ingredients that can help prevent irritation.
Three months after using the cream, she is now eczema-free.
Mum Paige said: “Evie-Rae also has a nut, soya and egg allergy, so we have to be careful with what we give her”.
Delighted with the transformation, Paige took to Facebook to share Evie-Rae’s before and after images.
Today Paige applies the cream every day and Evie is still eczema free.
According to Boots, the cream is very gentle and suitable for newborns and babies with sensitive skin. Over 98 per cent of the cream is naturally derived ingredients. It is also free from parabens, SLSs, mineral oils and artificial colours.
The cream is clinically tested, user-trialed and dermatologist tested and approved.
According to Boots, 10/10 parents would recommend the paediatrician-approved cream to other parents of babies with sensitive skin.
Luckily, the pair don’t need to see a dermatologist regularly now.
However, they are due to see the dermatologist again next month, just to monitor the condition.
Evie-Rae is now having fun with her parents and her sleep is getting better. Her parents are both happy that her skin is cured. Also,they want to share her story and help parents struggling with children who have eczema.
