A child that grows up with eczema has a painful and anxiety filled life. Why am I so itchy? What did I touch this time? Why is this happening to me? Can’t you make this stop? These are some of the many lamentations of a child with eczema. If they are too young to know what’s happening, it is up to parents to recognize this skin disorder. As a parent, how do you know if your child has eczema?
As we approach late summer, kids are lining up to get vision testing, immunizations, dental checkups and cleanings, and routine health screenings. Many of these are required for a return to school, but don’t let one important checkup fall by the wayside. For back-to-school, your child’s skin health and pediatric dermatology is as important for kids as for adults.
As a parent you hate seeing your child suffer with eczema. You watch them struggle with the severe itching and burning sensations. You wouldn’t wish it on anyone. After you have tried over-the-counter medications with little to no relief, you finally determine it may be time to seek care from a dermatologist.
Can I prevent eczema flare-ups? We can answer your question with a resounding YES. You can succeed with a little knowledge like knowing your triggers, some tips to reduce any symptoms, and when to see Goodless Dermatology.
