Managing Eczema In Children & Babies
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.
If you’re not sure what your triggers are, figuring them out can be a long and painstaking process, but one that will help keep your skin healthy. Our Flare Discovery Tool can help you identify things to look for in your home, diet, and lifestyle that could have triggered a flare. Try to record your triggers every time you have a flare, and after a while, you should have the list narrowed down. Once you know what your triggers are, you should try your best to avoid them. This will help keep your skin healthy.
