My daughter looks like she may have mild eczema with dry itchy skin. What lotion & bath wash can I use to help relieve the itching & add moisture?

In brief: Aveeno, (oatmeal)cerave

Aveeno oatmeal is good for bath.
For lotions cerave, or by prescription epiceram, hylatopic, or eletone. Oral supplementation with flaxseed or krill oil can add essential fattys acids to decrease eczema. Also recent studies show benefit of oral vitamin d. Lastly 50 per cnet of eczema patients can improve with probiotics.

In brief: Curel or cetaphil

Curel ultra healing is good (contains ceramides).
Also cetaphil restoraderm lotion is good (also with ceramides). Cetaphil has a bath wash also. You can also give her Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or zyrtec to help with the itch.
