Mum Praises A £3.99 ‘Miracle’ Cream Which Cured Her Daughter’s Painful Skin Disease
A mum has claimed that a £3.99 ‘miracle’ cream has ‘cured’ her daughter of a painful skin condition.
From the past two years, Paige Sweeney, 23, visited dermatologists to try to find a cure for the eczema afflicting her daughter Evie-Rae, now three, but nothing worked.
She said: The toddler would wake up every night, scratching herself until she bled.
After trying everything, the Nottingham-based mother said she spotted a £3.99 Childs Farm Baby Moisturiser on the shelves at her local Boots and decided to give it a try. To her amazement Evie’s eczema quickly vanished.
She described the cream as a ‘miracle cream’, Paige told MailOnline: ‘Within a matter of days I could see her skin starting to clear up. I couldn’t believe it.’
Now, her daughter is eczema free. It’s been three months her daughter is using the Childs Farm Baby Moisturiser.
The mother of the toddler claimed that NHS ‘could save a fortune if they put it on prescription’.
Paige used to constantly take her to the local dermatologists because the condition was affecting the entire family’s quality of life.
Her symptoms remained the same, after prescribing so much of antibiotics and steroid creams.
Painful rashes continued to flare up around her mouth, on her hands and in the creases at the back of her knees.
Paige recalled: ‘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.
‘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.’
So, her mother decided to try a £3.99 bottle of Childs Farm baby moisturiser from their local Boots store.
The dermatologist-approved cream contains active ingredients grapefruit, shea butter and tea tree oil, which are soft, natural products suitable for children used to keep skin moisturised and prevent irritation.
The delighted mother said: ‘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.
‘Within a matter of days I could see her skin starting to clear up. I couldn’t believe it.’
The cream literally worked so she decided to share her story on Facebook. She shared pictures of Evie-Rae’s before and after images (below) and the post was shared more than 30,000 times.
Evie is now eczema free and she applies the cream everyday.
In months, they have not seen any doctor but are due to see the dermatologist again next month, just to monitor the condition.
Paige said she will tell the expert how the cream made a difference, in the hope it will help other children around the country suffering from the condition.
Founder of Childs Farm, Joanna Jensen, commented: ‘Paige and Evie-Rae’s story is not uncommon to us – but they have shown how one small change can make all the difference.
