Red blotches and itchy skin while in the bath

Hi, my 5 year old daughter was diagnosed with eczema. I only use aqua’ s cream and pure clear glycerin soaps to bath her with, but when she is in the bath her skin goes blotchy and is itchy for a while after the bath making the bath experience horrible for both her and me.

What else can I do?

It is important the bathwater is not to hot. Just lukewarm is enough. Put some regular Jungle oats in a cotton bag and run the water from the warm tap into the bath through the bag.Also swish the bag around in the water for a while before your daughter gets into the water. Only use Epizone-E instead of soap in the bath and do not use any soaps of any kind.After the bath rub Epimax Cream all over your daughter's skin.
