Neosporin Essentials for Eczema Review

For as long as I can remember I’ve suffered with the occasional eczema breakout. This includes mild symptoms of irritation, itching (severe) and dry/scaly skin rashes on my hands and feet. While it can be found other places on the body, those are my trouble spots especially during the dry winter months. It usually starts out as very itchy spot on the palms of my hands that when left untreated (or scratched beyond belief) becomes red, scaly and bumpy. Doesn’t sound fun does it?

My usual treatment plan involves soaking my hands in cold water for extended periods of time which is clearly inconvenient and only soothes the immediate burning. Fortunately, I got the opportunity to review a new over-the-counter treatment pack from Neosporin, the brand I usually turn to for treating cuts and scrapes. The created the Neosporin Essentials pack that includes: Moisture Essentials Daily Body Wash, Eczema Essentials Daily Moisurizing Cream and Eczema Essentials Hydrocortisone Anti-Itch Cream.

I was really surprised that I liked this set of products as much as I did (and still do). The body wash which I use on my hands first thing in the morning and throughout the day is gentle on sensitive skin, fragrance-free and leaves my hands feeling soft. The moisturizing cream, unlike many hand creams I’ve tried, doesn’t leave behind a greasy residue and absorbs completely, especially when my hands are already dry. I’ve found that when I’m in the habit of using it daily, I don’t even get eczema breakouts. However, my favorite product of the essentials set is the Anti-Itch cream. While it does leave behind a greasy feeling that I’m not comfortable with, it’s worth getting immediate relief of the itching and burning sensation. One little dab on the palm of each hand and the discomfort is gone within minutes which is a far cry more comfortable that dipping my hands in cold water.

One thing I do want to stress is that this product line is for those of us suffering from mild eczema breakouts. If you have a severe form of eczema, you should seek the help of a physician.

    My boys usually get eczema flare ups in the winter time. I’m going to have to try this product out next winter, since this winter is too mild. So glad to hear it works!

      I’ve noticed Emma’s eczema hasn’t been as bad this winter too … but me, not-so-much. Blerg. It sucks but waking up and putting the anti-itch cream on helps tons.

      Yes, my son gets it in winter, too. I’m gonna have to find out if they sell this here in Australia. Nothing much seems to work so far :( So if this one is sold here I’ll give it a go. Thanks for sharing.

    I hunted down a website where I could also share my testimonial to this product. I want to spread the word! I have mild to severe eczema from my armpits to my thighs (and inconveniently in between my thighs as well.) I’ve suffered for years and have tried everything. The only thing that works is by ingesting steriods. While I like the fact that steriods are effective, I dislike the side effects, and I tend to not want to take them. I bought this set a week ago, and have already started seeing immediate results. I’m so relieved to have found something that is natural and effective in battling this awful condition. My only qualm? The price. Yes you can find coupons out there, but if I always have to buy this stuff monthly, it may get costly!

    For ten years i have suffered from excema on my feet. I have tried everyhing including extra virgin coconut oil and drinking apple cider vinegar. Not to mention dozens of lotions and ointments. I didnt suffer from outbreaks, my excema effected me everyday. There were times I couldnt sleep at night because it itched so bad or hurt horribly because I had scratched my skin off. This product is amazing! The itching is gone and my feet and ankles look almost normal! Finally something that works! I cant wait till I dont have to hide my feet and ankles anymore. Thank you so much for this product!
