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.
