Eczema got you or your kiddos down, mama? This soothing gel may be the itch-reliever you’ve been looking for
Itch – scratch – scab gets worse – itch – scratch – repeat. If you’re prone to eczema, dry or sensitive skin, this dreaded ‘itch-scratch cycle’ may be all too familiar to you. Itching and scratching worsens skin inflammation and causes further breakdown of the skin barrier, which is why the vicious cycle continues when left untreated.
If that’s already got you itching all over, imagine what our bubs are feeling when they have a bout of the scratchies. Itch is the most common crippling symptom seen in eczema babies and children. Their skin can appear as red, rough patches on the skin and end up dry and scaly when scratched. While most cases are hereditary (if parents have eczema, the child is likely to have it too), some other causes include viral or bacterial infections, exposure to food allergens, or even after being in contact with unsuitable soaps, bubble baths or irritating fabrics (source). Sometimes these can also just cause a rash on sensitive skin, and may not necessarily be eczema.
The question still stands, though: how do we relieve the itch, fast?
