Skin Care Tips
1- Apply moisturizer at least twice a day (morning/night). Keeping your child's skin moisturized will prevent dryness and cracking. -which can decrease the need for eczema medications in the future.
2- If your child has severe itching, scratching and the products are not providing relief, ask your child’s dermatologist and/or peditrician about wet wrap therapy.
3- Keep your child’s fingernails short and smooth. Long nails can scratch or puncture eczema wounds; plus dead skin and bacteria can get underneath your child's nails causing infections.
4- Keep temperature and humidity levels comfortable. Avoid dry air that will cause your child to sweat. Sweating is the most common trigger of the itch/scratch cycle for people suffering from eczema.
