How Eczema Could Be Disrupting Your Child’s Sleep

January 30, 2018

How Eczema Could Be Disrupting Your Child’s Sleep

Every case of infant eczema is different. For some, the symptoms include dry, scaly, and/or itchy rashes. Others, meanwhile, may have rashes that bubble up before oozing and weeping fluid. Whatever the symptoms, you know that your little one is in major discomfort. Things become even more difficult when it’s time to go to sleep. So what exactly can you do about it? Unfortunately, there is no cure for the skin condition. But there are steps you can take to ensure that your child is comfortable and able to get a good night’s sleep. Keep reading to learn more.

The “Itch-Scratch” Cycle: How do I get my eczema suffering child to sleep during an eczema flare?

We tend to associate eczema with constant itching. That itching is actually caused by an overactive immune response. Your child’s need to itch becomes an urgent need to scratch, even if it’s for temporary relief. What’s interesting about scratching, though, is that it makes your child’s body release chemicals that cause them to itch more. This causes a domino effect, increasing the severity of a rash. Most parents don’t realize that when their child scratches, they are literally damaging the protective outer layer of their skin. As you might have guessed, this causes more irritation and itching. It’s what eczema skin care experts refer to as the “itch-scratch cycle.”

Maybe you’re wondering what the itch-scratch cycle has to do with sleep. Well, consider this: children of all ages are usually distracted by daily activities and aren’t as focused on the itch until it’s bedtime. Unfortunately, the eczema itch often becomes so intense that a child can’t sleep. You may already know that sleep pattern disruption leads to additional stress, which can intensify flare-ups and affect the entire family.

There’s no question that sleep-deprived child with sensitive skin requires a great deal of special attention, care, and extra loving.     

Soothing Eczema Therapy: Calming, Anti-inflammatory Clothing that Comforts Eczema Babies 

It’s absolutely miserable to be stuck in the itch-scratch cycle. But the experts at Soothems provide plenty of hope for your eczema baby son or daughter. We are proud to have a number of effective baby eczema treatments available, including eczema clothing rompers, sleepsuits, wet wrap sleeves, and cradle cap relief skull caps.

Take the eczema sleepsuit onesie, for example. This eczema sleepwear is lightweight, breathable, and therapeutic for long-lasting relief. What parents also appreciate our eczema pajamas is that they can be used wet or dry and with or without emollients. You can feel comfortable knowing that Soothems TEWLTect fabric protects moisture levels on the skin and can greatly reduce itching. Plus, these garments are super soft, bacteria controlling, lightweight, and thermoregulating.

What really separates Soothems apart from the rest, though, is the storybook written in tandem with the garments. “Search for a Smile in the Moon” features main characters Scratch and his pal Emojibot. Just before bedtime, you and your kiddo can follow their imaginative adventures to the moon. Have your child watch closely as the blue moons fade away when in contact with body heat. Such an effect can be used to get your son or daughter to imagine how their skin is healing and that they are feeling better and less itchy.

Chemical Free Fabrics: The Reality and risks for Contact Dermatitis

July 25, 2019

First and foremost, there is no such thing as a CHEMICAL FREE fabric or made without chemicals. There are fabrics that are made with SAFE TEXTILE CHEMICALS and additives that will help your skin.

The fact of the matter is that all commercial fabrics use chemicals in the finishing. And “White” fabric is bleached white instead of being dyed but uses similar amounts of the same chemicals to be finished. Why would you want to trust your sensitive skin to an eczema clothing brand that doesn’t understand fabrics, research, and testing?

This article and the accompanying research will help you understand what to look for from fabrics designed for people with sensitive skin, eczema and contact dermatitis and the governmental agencies and third-party, independent labs that make sure your skin is safe from harmful chemicals.

Zinc: Is it Important and Safe in Eczema Clothing?
Zinc: Is it Important and Safe in Eczema Clothing?

July 24, 2019

Eczema clothing and sleepwear without “Zinc” is truthfully an inferior product to other eczema clothing products made with zinc infused textiles. The fact is an eczema clothing brand that boosts “ No Zinc” is either uneducated about the medical benefits of zinc, misinformed, or intentionally misleading people to buy their product which made from a regular sportswear fabric – not a skin smart fabric with zinc oxide and other helpful medical biopolymers like Chitosan.

Conversely, zinc and the mineral compound zinc oxide are extremely helpful for treating skin irritations and autoimmune diseases like eczema. Zinc is commonly recognized by the medical and scientific communities as boosting the body’s immune system. Therefore many doctors recommend taking zinc supplements to stave off the common cold. Zinc Oxide is a compound of Zinc and Oxygen and is commonly a topical variation of the element zinc. Zinc Oxide has been proven over centuries to treat 1000’s of skin ailments from diaper rash, poisonous plant irritations, sunscreens, chickenpox, dermatitis, and eczema.
