Eczema is uncomfortable no matter what age it appears, but eczema in babies and young kids can be especially rough — just because, as every parent knows, it’s so hard when your little one is in discomfort. According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), eczema affects up to 25% of children, with most cases appearing within the first year of a baby’s life. It makes their already-sensitive skin dry and itchy, and can be further irritated by products, which can make it tricky to know exactly what to treat it with.
So why do babies get eczema, anyway? According to Cleveland Clinic, “This happens because your baby’s protective barrier on the outermost layer of their skin is weak and doesn’t work as expected. Their symptoms can last for a couple of weeks each time there’s a flare-up of symptoms.” Eczema is a chronic condition, with these flare-ups occurring periodically, sometimes even into adulthood.

Parents whose kids suffer from eczema can attest that they’ll try almost anything to find relief for their babies, including apple cider vinegar, essential oils, and bathing them in things like breast milk and even diluted bleach (yikes!). But according to over 300 positive reviews of Gladskin Eczema Cream for Babies and Kids, it’s the only thing you need to clear up your baby’s eczema — and it’s as simple as applying this skin-friendly moisturizer to the affected areas.
Cleanly and gently formulated and fragrance-free, Gladskin Eczema Cream for Babies and Kids is free of steroids, parabens, sulfates, alcohols, and oatmeal (a typical ingredient of most eczema creams), and is made to correct the imbalance of the skin’s natural microbiome — restoring the balance so the skin can heal. But the proof is in the pudding, so to speak, and parents are raving about how well Gladskin works to provide relief from eczema … in many cases, overnight.
“I have lost count of all the things I have tried for my daughter,” said one parent review. “Literally thousands of dollars.” She went on to say that she was skeptical, but after using Gladskin, her 4-year-old’s eczema cleared dramatically. “[T]here is a noticeable difference in skin texture — and the really amazing part is that she does not mind having it applied! She is usually so difficult to apply lotions and creams. So that’s a side win in my book.”

Another parent, who also happens to be a pharmacist, raved, “[I] have tried so many products for my daughter (now 2 years old), this is the first product that has kept her eczema from flaring up. I use this twice a day almost daily on her. Would highly recommend this product. Also, my dermatologist [is] impressed with the results!”
Gladskin also features a Gladness Guarantee: if you don’t love the product, simply reach out to them and they’ll make it right, so you can’t lose. But honestly, any eczema cream for babies and kids that helps clear up their symptoms quickly — and provides their parents with the peace of knowing they’re not uncomfortable — is a definite win.
