Thanks Clair xx

Try diprobase, from chemist/doc can prescribe...has worked wonders for our LO who had chronic dry skin

My lo had REALLY dry skin on her face and head to the point where she would constantly rub her face back and forth on your clothes when she was being held - it was obviously very itchy for her. I too tried everything including olive oil, E45, Johnsons creams, Burts Bees etc and nothing worked for her. I took her to the GP who prescribed Aveeno cream and it sorted out the problem almost overnight - it was brilliant - I still put it on her twice a day to keep her skin nice and soft. I think that you can buy it over the counter at the chemist - I collected my prescription from Lloyds the Pharmacy so I know that they have it. Can't recommend it enough!

Emila has the same thing - I put olive oil on and it made her skin red and gave her spots!!
The doc has prescibed oilatum cream for her. She has oilatum in her bath every night as she has sensitive skin.
Might also try the Aveeno cream debbie12 has suggested, as I used that when I was pregnant and no stretch marks!!

Diprobase is fab. My ds had dry skin as a baby and was prescribed this. He recently had a bout of very dry skin again (he's now 6) and has been prescribed it again and within a week of using it his skin is so much better already

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
