Jacob has always suffered with eczema, ever since he was a tiny tot. It is usually fairly well managed with a combination of bath oil and daily applications of eczema cream. But when the weather is hot, we have real problems – not only does the heat cause a flare up that is hard to manage, but as he is allergic to almost every sun cream on the market, we have issues protecting him from the sun too.
Last night was a bad night for little Jacob – he woke up several times in the night, itchy and uncomfortable. The hot spots are behind his knees, the inside of his elbows and his face. It’s not nice at all.
Cool baths seem to help soothe the itch, and chamomile lotion relieves it a little bit, but nothing takes it away. I hate to see my little boy like this. There are a few handy tips on the National Eczema Society website but I want to hear from you – real people.
SO, I am on the hunt for new ideas – things you have tried and tested that have helped you or your family. Take it away – I am all ears!
