Managing eczema in children can be frustrating and at times even feel overwhelming. If you have a child with eczema, going out in public during flare-ups can be stressful because of your child's discomfort or even because you may feel judged as a parent. It can also be very hard to watch your child struggle through this persistent and sometimes painful condition. By learning how to identify your child’s eczema triggers and using gentle and effective products, you can help keep his or her skin healthy and help keep him or her active and happy.
Seventy percent of eczema cases start in children younger than 5 years old, and about 60% of infants who have eczema continue to have one or more symptoms in adulthood. For those who suffer from eczema over their entire lives, symptoms may change over time.
