Went to my allergist today, mentioned my difficulties with the beach since sand and ocean water irritate me eczema (even though ocean water should help). He asked what sort of sunscreen I've been using and recommended I try a spray. However, finding a spray in a sunscreen has proved difficult. Does anyone have recommendations?
Anything that has an SPF on it seems to irritate my skin as well. So that includes a lot of make up. I found that gluten and acidic foods irritate my skin as well. So now that I got off track, I went to an Ayurvedic doctor and asked this question and she said that we aren't meant to wear sunscreen and to just wear a hat and only go out for 15 minutes at a time. I k now this is unrealistic so my search continued. Neutrogena still breaks me out but a lot less and I found that Aveda has helped. That truly is expensive! I have been wanting to try and make my own with Dr. Axe's recipe but haven't gotten around to it. Maybe check him out as well. Good luck!
We have found CeraVe brand sunscreen to be the only cream our kiddo with eczema can tollerate. It's expensive and doesn't come in a spry that I know of, but was recommended to us by our dermatologist. Hope you find a solution that works for your family!

our son couldnt be on beach for long for similar reasons, the sea caused head to toe hives once. So we started going on lake holidays, swimming in lake water is much better for his skin. We also used ROC sensitive sun cream, However, sun cream is an irritant, so skin has to be under good control first before exposure to sun cream. So change skin management routine, so application of moisturizer should be upped, my sons routine as a child was 5 times a day, and upped to 8 for a flare up.
