Cold temperatures and windy conditions are hard on our winter ravaged skin.
During the winter, I am so uncomfortable in my own skin. My skin itches and is irritated. I'm rather miserable and feel like I could completely just crawl right out of my skin. I am one of many Canadians who lives with Eczema.
While the exact causes of eczema are unknown, we do understand that it can be caused by soaps & detergents, as well as our environment. If we are too hot or too cold our skin can react, by becoming itchy and breaking out in a rash. Common places for eczema to appear are the wrists, hands, feet, backs of knees and face.
Children are susceptible to eczema - two out of my three have been plagued with the rash and itching. When my oldest daughter was in kindergarten I was pulled aside one afternoon at pick-up and told that she couldn't return to school until I had her cleared by a doctor. I knew it was just eczema, yet, the school felt she may of had some kind of communicable childhood skin disease.

It's time to stop itching, and start restoring with Polysporin Eczema Essentials. Happily, I've been using this powerhouse trio of products, which have calmed my crawling skin.

How the Products Worked for Me:
I've lived with eczema for as long as I can remember. Over the years I've tried many different products, in the hopes of finding something which really works. I've looked high and low for a product which offers me relief from my own skin. I've asked friends and I've asked other moms in the search of itch relief.
During the last few weeks I've been trying out new-to-me products from Polysporin. The products are non-greasy and unscented and they really work.
I've implemented Polysorin Eczema Essentials into my daily routine and my skin is thanking me. The products are available over the counter and safe for all ages. (with the exception of the hydrocortisone, which is recommended for children over the age of two) The daily wash is my favourite product, as it's not drying like soaps. A close second favourite product, is the moisturizing cream which has helped to improve my skin quickly by strengthening skin's natural barrier function. Having the hydrocortisone cream on hand is perfect for emergencies when you need relief quick. It is clear to me that I've finally found products which give the kind of results that I've longed for - for so many years.
Polysporin Eczema Essentials have helped me to love my skin again!
