Fabulous Find Friday

I know I missed last week. So shoot me. No, don't. Sarcasm anyone?

I've been busy. My standard excuse but a very valid one. Last Friday I was in Hot Springs with all three kiddos at a follow up appointment for the Monster. We also visited the Mid-America Science Museum while we were there but that is another post.

The Monster has a plethora of doctor's visits between his skin, allergies, and ear problems. We travel a lot for those appointments but thankfully his dermatologist travels to us. They hold a clinic in town every two weeks. We just started using this new doc and she is wonderful. I could sing her praises all day. She suggested we ditch my old tried and true Cetaphil and use a newer cream and cleanser for the Monster's eczema/ectopic dermatitis/all around crazy skin issues.

CeraVe is a bit pricey but is what she recommends. We've started using the cleanser in the shower and the cream daily for him and he's looking better.

An excerpt from the site states:

CeraVe is the only skin care line with unique, patented Multivesicular Emulsion (MVE) delivery technology that was only available before in a prescription formulation
CeraVe contains special skin-nurturing and protective ingredients including essential
ceramides that moisturize and soften skin and help to repair and maintain the skin barrier
CeraVe was developed with dermatologists to help treat eczema, psoriasis, and other skin conditions including dry skin
CeraVe can be used alone or with prescription medications and helps offset the drying effects of certain medications used for eczema, psoriasis, acne, and rosacea
CeraVe offers therapeutic benefits without a prescription—and an elegant formulation with essential
ceramides—at an affordable price.
Ask for CeraVe at your pharmacist's counter. It is an over the counter product but it is not located on the shelf.
