This is an EXCELLENT daily use moisturizer for individuals with eczema. This is NOT a treatment for eczema. Most of the creams and ointments associated with skin conditions are heavy, greasy, and leave a sheen to the skin. My 8 year old son was constantly subjected to these treatments (since the age of 6 months) and they are all goopy and disgusting. Sarna Sensitive gave him a moisturizer which works to prevent the dryness associated with his eczema throughout the day without the disgusting mess of all of the other thick creams and petroleum based ointments. It is also much more cost effective than many of the other moisturizers which are effective for his skin condition. If you are looking for a fragrance free, non-greasey moisturizer for dry skin on your face... I would recommend Complex 15 as well.

I have mild eczema and slightly dry, sensitive skin. I bought Sarna because I saw it on TV being advertised as an over-the-counter anti-itch lotion for moderate eczema and dry skin. I [...]opened up the box, rubbed the lotion in and in about 2 minutes my legs started breaking out. I was covered in hives and little itchy, burning red spots in no time at all. I washed it off quickly, which burned even more, and rubbed camphophenique all over myself because that's all I had to possibly alleviate the pain. The redness and itching seems to be getting a little better, but my legs are still all warm and quite inflamed. I would recommend not using this product at all, but if you do, definitely patch test it. My legs feel worse because of it!

    Comments about Sarna Sensitive, Anti-Itch Lotion Fragrance Free, 7.5 fl oz:

    Sarna Sensitive is the only non-steroidal product that has successfully contained my eczema. (Sarna Original does not work for my extremely sensitive condition. It is much too strong and contains ingredients that act as irritants.)

      Comments about Sarna Sensitive, Anti-Itch Lotion Fragrance Free, 7.5 fl oz:

      I was very excited about this product first time I saw on TV. Then, I was still positive to try it when I read the reviews. I didn't have any bad reaction to it. However, after 3 days of morning and night uses, (4th to 10th day-- about 1 week)my skin got itchy back again!!!! I don't know why, but the product warning says, " if symptoms remains, stop use them." So, I stopped. The first 3 days were like a dream!! I wish my skin didn't get used to it so soon! I guess it's just depending on what type/kind of excema.

        Comments about Sarna Sensitive, Anti-Itch Lotion Fragrance Free, 7.5 fl oz:

        My daughter has eczema and very sensitive skin, yet this doesn't irritate it or sting her eczema sites. It works well for basic moisturizing, and has minimal smell (the Original Sarna has a strong smell in comparison). I'm not sure about the anti-itching properties, although it seems better than most over-the-counter products for itching too. Not totally eliminated, however.

            Comments about Sarna Sensitive, Anti-Itch Lotion Fragrance Free, 7.5 fl oz:

            Sarna Anti-Itch Sensitive has a skin anesthetic which the regular (not the Sensitive) Sarna does not have. This active ingredient is pramoxine, which is used to calm and soothe hemorrhoids. Well, it also works for my intensely itchy eczema (atopic dermatitis). At night when I wake up itching all over, I apply this lotion and am able to get right back to sleep. It's easy to apply, has no odor, and does not affect clothing.
