"I used Aveeno for Dry Skin Relief Body Wash four different times. Got big itchy welts on my arms but mostly on my thighs and legs. Itched so bad I couldn't stand it. Quit using it and the welts are finally going away. Don't know what ingredients are in it to cause this problem, but will not use it again."

"Since this product has so many bad reviews, I felt the need to share my positive experience. I've tried many good, dermatologist recommended products, such as Crave, Cetaphyl, Rich Pose, etc. Aveeno unscented is the only lotion or cream that doesn't end up irritating my skin."

"After a few days of minor itching on my arms after using Aveeno I awoke with a severe rash on areas of my body where I had applied this lotion. It cost me a sleepless night a trip to the doctor, medication and days of itching."

"I'm currently battling a severe case of eczema and Aveeno Sensitive Skin has been the only thing to help soothe my skin. It doesn't last for long but I've found that it works better than most other things I've tried, including prescription medications."

"Used on my 12 month old who has eczema. This totally inflamed him! He had a severe reaction to it when I put it on His skin was dry when I decided to try the Aveeno baby (that’s recommended for eczema) This made his skin raw and looked like a third degree burn on his face!"

"Used Aveeno restorative skin therapy and developed a very itchy pimple-like rash that ended with welts and continued for 6 days. I showered to remove the cream and used antihistamines by mouth and 1 percent hydrocortisone cream on the skin. I have used other products by Aveeno with no reaction but will stop all use in the future. Day seven and I am still itching."

"l was first prescribed by consultant oncologist for skin crease areas that were inflamed and sore, and it worked its magic, that was over 3 years ago, l continued to use it with no problems, but the latest bottle causes itching and sore areas where its applied, took a while to figure out what was causing the problem, since stopping applying my itching has subsided almost non existing now. Has a new ingredient been added? l wonder. l now dust myself with oatmeal flour, now that works a treat, and its a fraction of the cost."

"I have been using Aveeno ezcema cream for my face for 8 years, recommended to all my friends and family. It was perfect, until I have developed rashes and hives, sensitive and bumpy, oozing and flaking skin JUST on the face. It has been a whole year and got better recently and without realizing it may be aveeno, I've decided to put it on again and it immediately gave me back the rashes and oozing again. This needs to be put off shelves."

"Is excellent for healthy skin but don’t recommend for dry+ skin. I’d give it a 5/10 points."
