Yay! I finally found something to control my son’s eczema flare-ups!

Both of my boys have battled eczema.  When Big Brother was little he had terrible eczema on the back of his legs.  We used get him out of bed in the morning only to find that he’d scratch his legs so much during the night his legs were bleeding. He had to sleep in footed pajamas with socks over his hands to prevent him from scratching.

Thankfully, he’s grown out of the worst of is and now his only eczema symptoms are rough prickly skin patches on his upper arms above his elbows.  Little Brother is a different story.  Here is what we are currently dealing with…

His legs are covered in eczema patches, his arms are dotted too.  We’ve been using an over the counter baby eczema cream, and it worked okay (when I remembered to use it), but it is so greasy that I could only put it on him at night before I put him in his jammies.

Then I was asked if I’d like to try the new Neosporin Essentials.  Neosporin Essentials is a line developed specifically for skin affected by eczema.  It is formulated to be safe for the entire family.  The Neosporin Essentials line is comprised of 3 different products that work together to keep eczema symptoms under control.

ECZEMA ESSENTIALS™ Daily Moisturizing Cream:                                                     

  • Clinically shown to restore visibly healthier skin in 3 days
  • Goes beyond ordinary daily lotions to relieve dryness, itch and irritation due to eczema while also helping to strengthen and restore the skin’s natural barrier function
  • Clinically shown to relieve itchy skin due to eczema on contact
  • Shown in a clinical study to be as effective as the leading prescription* (*vs. the leading barrier emulsion in subjects with mild to moderate eczema with twice daily (or as needed) use.)
  • Contains colloidal oatmeal, a skin protectant that helps relieve dryness, itch and irritation due to eczema
  • Fragrance-free, steroid-free
  • Does not contain antibiotics
  • Gentle enough for daily use by the whole family


  • Proven gentle and non-irritating even on eczema-prone skin
  • Effectively cleanses even the most dry, sensitive skin
  • Contains gentle moisturizers for non-drying cleansing
  • Fragrance-free, soap-free
  • Does not contain antibiotics
  • Gentle enough for daily use by the whole family


  • Contains a dual-action formula to provide fast relief of itch flare-ups due to eczema while it moisturizes to restore visibly healthier skin
  • Clinically shown to improve dryness, flaking and the appearance of redness
  • Contains hydrocortisone
  • Fragrance-free
  • Does not contain antibiotics

I LOVE the daily body wash!  It goes on nice and thick and is like a combination of the best body washes for eczema that we’ve tried for our little boys.  I was a little dubious about the Moisturizing Cream because it was much thinner than I’m used to and not greasy at all.  Let’s just say I was wrong in doubting.  The Moisturizing Cream has been wonderful in calming Little Brother’s eczema flare-ups.  Just compare the picture above to the following picture…

The first picture was taken on Thursday night.  This picture was taken Friday morning.  In this case the picture says it all for the effectiveness of Neosporin Essentials.

Disclosure: I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Neosporin Essentials and received a product sample to facilitate my review, and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

  1. Thanks for this info! Because of the up-and-down weather, we're having the worst eczema year in a long time here. I'll have to see if I can find this product!
  2. As soon as I saw this product from Neosporin, I knew I had to try it. I didnt have eczema until in my 30s! My hands get covered with it and it is embarrassing. The neosporin helped clear mine up also! I love it. Thanks for sharing. Poor little guy, I feel for him!
  3. Thanks for the info I looked for this where I live and no one had it. I'll keep looking because it works. Thanks again.
  4. What a difference. My 5 year old has had eczema his whole life. I'm always looking for products that won't make his condition work. This looks like it will work great! Thanks for the review.
  5. Oooh thanks for this! I too suffer from Eczema and am always looking for a better solution to treat and eliminate flare-ups!
  6. Thank you so much for this! I had occasional flareups of eczema in my late teens and early 20s but nothing major until I had kids. Now I deal with it all year. I have yet to find anything that really clears it up. Most products just keep the patches from getting worse until they finally go away on their own weeks later. I will definitely be looking into Neosporin Essentials.
  7. thanks for this. I suffer from eczema as well. I'll have to look into this!
