This is an important question at this time of year. The sunscreen that children seem to tolerate best is the Annique rooibos tea brand for babies and children.

Seeing that you are going to Cape Town, visit a health shop and ask for a product called Axhilirit Eczema. It is only available in some health shops and pharmacies in the Western Cape and made by a small local company, and works beyond belief. Every friend and family member that had problems with eczema that II have sent this to rave about it.

I am no doctor but ill sugest staying away from your current treatment as using Aquest cream on your child lets say 4-6 hours interims .As for the sunblock my angle responds nicely to the one Avon sells
