A young mom in the UK claims she has discovered a “miracle cream” that finally cured her toddler’s eczema once and for all.
For the last three years, 23-year-old Paige Sweeney has desperately been searching for anything that would ease the uncomfortable symptoms of her daughter’s eczema.
According to The Daily Mail, Sweeney’s daughter Evie-Rae would often scratch herself so much at night that she would often make herself bleed.
Then, as a last resort, Sweeney bought a $5 cream called Childs Farm Baby Moisturizer. In a matter of days, her eczema was gone.
“Within a matter of days I could see her skin starting to clear up. I couldn't believe it,” she said.
Now, three months after she first started using the cream, Evie-Rae is still eczema free and her mother thinks it should be offered as a prescription through the UK’s NHS.
Sweeney revealed that before she found Childs Farm Baby Moisturizer, Evie-Rae was prescribed a number of different antibiotics that just didn’t work.
“I've tried everything in an attempt to help Evie-Rae. She has had eczema since she was born, then when she was five weeks old she was diagnosed with a milk allergy,” she said. “Her eczema was so painful that she didn't sleep through the night until she was two. She was constantly scratching and bleeding.”
“We saw a dermatologist every eight weeks for two and a half years, but nothing we tried seemed to work. It was awful to see her in so much pain,” she added.
Finally, Sweeney picked up a bottle of the Childs Farm moisturizer because it was dermatologist-approved and contained soothing ingredients like Shea butter, tea tree oil, and grapefruit.
“I saw the moisturising cream on the shelf in Boots and decided to give it a go. Evie-Rae also has a nut, soya and egg allergy, so we have to be careful with what we give her, but I could see the ingredients were all natural,” she said. “Within a matter of days I could see her skin starting to clear up. I couldn't believe it.”
Now that the cream has changed Evie-Rae’s life, her mother has shared before and after photos on Facebook, where they have since gone viral.
Today, Evie-Rae is completely clear of eczema and she still applies the cream once a day.
Founder of Childs Farm, Joanna Jensen, said she hopes the cream can help other children around the world now that Evie-Rae’s story has gone viral.
“Paige and Evie-Rae's story is not uncommon to us - but they have shown how one small change can make all the difference,” said Jensen.
