My Doctor Recommended Ivory for My Child’s Diagnosis
I remember sitting in the doctor’s office with my 4-year old daughter that day, my hand softly caressing hers. She has such soft baby skin, I thought. We had been sent over on an urgent referral from her pediatrician, and I was a nervous wreck. (We’ve had a history of health scares with my daughter. Remember THIS post?) As I looked around the office I realized, she was the youngest patient in the waiting room that day – times five. As the minutes painfully passed, the doctor finally came in. My daughter had a new diagnosis.
Molluscum Contagiosum. A viral skin disease was the cause of my daughter’s itchy, inflamed and bumpy rash all over my daughter’s legs. I remember filing the skin disease name in my mind. It wasn’t one I had come across in my pediatric nursing years. That meant I had to listen intently as the doctor sat us down for treatment recommendations. I was tense, perched on the end of my chair as we discussed our next steps.
The doctor immediately recommended that we change out all of her lotions and soaps to let her body heal. I admit that it was hard to give up our usual bath time routine, especially when we had been using the same sweet smelling baby products for years. She loved how they smelled. I love how they made her skin feel oh-so-baby-soft. But then my doctor recommended Ivory Soap, and I immediately relaxed.
Ivory is a brand that I’m very familiar with. I used Ivory Original Bar Soap as a child, the scent of my childhood immediately taking me back to happy times and fun bath time memories. Now as a parent, I trust Ivory to give my daughter’s sensitive skin the pure clean it needs – free of harmful ingredients, dyes and heavy perfumes, pH balanced, and a rich lather that’s safe for my whole family to use every single day. Doctor recommended (hey, even our dermatologist said so) and 99.44% pure and clean ingredients for even the most sensitive skin, we have now changed out all of the soaps in our house to the one my parents trusted for me, and now the soap that I trust for my family.
Ivory has been providing families a pure and gentle clean since 1879. I trust the clean choice that Ivory Original Bar Soap has given to me over the years. And now, that same bar will provide pure clean for my daughter, when she needs it the most. We may have a new skin diagnosis, but it won’t stop us from fun bath time memories…especially now that this girl knows that her soap floats!

Do you use Ivory soap for your family? How can Ivory give your family peace of mind and a pure and gentle clean?
