Before I became a Mom, I had no clue what eczema even was. I remember a lot of parents in my childcare setting talking about their children having bouts with eczema, but it always looked different on each kid.
Then, when Sophia started having patches of bumps, raised red skin on her inner thighs, I had no clue what it was. I assumed some type of rash, but I never even thought about eczema as I still really didn’t understand the skin condition.

Luckily, a friend who is a Dermatologist PA told me quite quickly that is exactly what the patches were and told me how to take care of them.
She recommended a bottom layer of hydrocortisone cream and a top layer of a thick lotion like an Aquaphor. I did a bit of research and went one step further with the exederm Flare Control Cream.
This is our personal experience of how the eczema and contact dermatitis flares up on Sophia. The combination helps control the itchiness of her patches and clear them away.
Exederm Flare Control Cream is the only paraben-free hydrocortisone cream available in US. It is also the first and only hydrocortisone product to receive the National Eczema Association’s coveted Seal of Acceptance with a perfect 5 out of 5 score.
This combination usually takes out any spots on her skin within 2 days, max. It’s like a little eczema treatment miracle for us – and hopefully you too!
To help prevent the flare ups in the first place, I’ve been using this exederm intensive baby moisturizer.
It’s a thick, but still super smooth, lotion that goes right into the skin without a greasy aftermath. It’s extremely hydrating so that when we use it regularly, we really alleviate Sophia’s eczema issues.
