My son (Eli) who is dealing with all the new fod allergies, broke out yesterday when I put a new sunscreen on him. It is a liquid sunscreen. It is made by Ocean Potion and it is supposed to evaporate after you put it on...he got bright red blotches. It is a face only sunscreen so just his face reacted this way and he had a different sunscreen on his body. Any ideas?

I didn't know there was a face only sunscreen.
I would stick to the other sunscreen that he is not reacting to.

My almost 10 year old reacts to every sunscreen I have ever used on him. The only other thing he is allergic to is mosquito bites and that allergy is a mild one.

We've had terrible luck with sunscreen... our son seemed to react to all of them, however, this year I found one which he seems to be tolerating better than others: Neutrogena Sensitive Skin . It's in a small white bottle (118 ml) with blue writing and a blue cap. Maybe it might work for your son? Here is a little more information provided on the bottle:

Neutrogena
Sensitive Skin
Physical Block
SPF 30
Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB Lotion
no irritating chemical sunscreens

on the back:
- gentle oil free formula
- hypo-allergenic (this does not always mean allergen-free!)
- fragrance free
- PABA-free
- Non-comedogenic

Medicinal ingredient: titanium dioxide (9.1%)
