Eczema lotion alternative?

I don't think our daughter has eczema, but she does have a few rough patches. I've tried all kinds of lotions for severe dryness, but none have cleared up the rough spots until I used Aveeno Eczema lotion. I love that brand and it worked great on her and kept the patches away, but a bottle doesn't last long and it's too expensive. Does anyone know if there is an alternative lotion that works just as well? Or any recommendations from someone who has little ones who have similar issues?

    No lotion suggestions, but have you looked at her diet to find out if anything is causing the excema? That is usually a sign of food allergies.

    I use the generic version of Vaseline Cocoa Butter Deep Conditioning Body Lotion for my try patches and within two uses my skin is almost cleared up. I highly recommend this.

    I'm allergic to petroleum which is a main ingrediant in most lotions. I have moderate eczema and rely on The Body Shop's line of body butters. It's pretty natural, smells great and works like a charm.
