A Refresher on Children’s Eczema

What is the Best Way to Help a Child Suffering from Eczema?

Whether your child has had eczema for a few weeks or a few years, you never stop looking up potential treatments. It can be easy to get bogged down in all that information to the point where it becomes overwhelming. That’s why it’s a good idea to step back every now and then to review the basics of eczema. Keep reading as we further explain what eczema is, the different types of the condition, and why your child might be itching so much.

What is Infant Eczema?

Atopic dermatitis can affect a child as young as two or three months old. Parents should look for a rash that suddenly appears and:

  • Makes the skin dry, scaly, and itchy
  • Forms on the scalp and face, especially on the cheeks
  • Can bubble up before oozing and weeping fluid
  • Causes itching that comes and goes

In order to scratch the itch, your son or daughter may try rubbing against their bedding for short-term relief. However, continuous rubbing and scratching only leads to skin infections and trouble sleeping.

How to Treat Children with Eczema:

Eczema gradually changes as your kiddo gets older. For example, they may have to deal with eczema on their bicep, eczema on their feet, and even eczema behind their knees. It’s common for children with the condition to also have itchy, scaly patches where the rash appeared. Look for your son or daughter’s skin to possibly:

  • Get bumpy and look similar to permanent goosebumps
  • Lighten or darken where eczema appears
  • Turn leathery to protect itself from constant scratching
  • Develop knots on the thickened skin

Types of Eczema:

Let’s look at just a few of the more common types of Atopic Dermatitis (or eczema, the common name):

  • Hand eczema - Is your child in regular contact with allergens or irritating chemicals from household products? Then they may have the occasional itchy, blistering, dry, cracking skin on their hands.
  • Dyshidrotic eczema - These blisters appear on the edge of the fingers, toes, palms, and soles of the feet. Dyshidrotic eczema can be caused by stress, allergies, or exposure to chemicals and other substances.
  • Nummular eczema - This type looks much different from other forms of eczema and can be much more difficult to treat. You will want to watch for your child having itchy, coin-shaped spots.

How to Stop Eczema Itch:

“Why does my child itch all the time?” That’s a question we are commonly asked by parents of children with eczema. The answer lies in what’s known as the “itch-scratch cycle.” There are situations where the itch gets so bad that children scratch until it bleeds. As you might have guessed, doing this can lead to even worse eczema and possible infection. TEWLTect fabric made from TENCEL with Chitosan and Zinc Oxide. This cycle of itching and scratching is what leads to eczema flare-ups, as explained by Dr. Jonathan Spergel of the National Eczema Association.

Eczema & Vitamin D = Connection, Cure or Confusion?
Eczema & Vitamin D = Connection, Cure or Confusion?

June 16, 2019

The Vitamin D Council’s research correlates conclusions that having high enough levels of vitamin D3 may reduce your risk of developing eczema and psoriasis and the prevalence of eczema and psoriasis flareups. And that people with normal to higher levels of vitamin D3 will help manage eczema flareups and they will have fewer skin infections.

Conversely, a prominent and leading 2017 study from a team of Canadian researchers found that increasing vitamin D level is unlikely to reduce the risk and susceptibility to asthma, elevated immunoglobulin E (IgE) levels, psoriasis and atopic dermatitis conditions in adults or children.
