this month is national eczema awareness month and chances are, you or someone you love has suffered from this itchy condition, too. here at the Blushing Basics household all three babies have taken bouts with eczema, my daughter having the worst case of it and still battling that dry itching skin. frequent itching causes her to wake up at night, causes her constant discomfort and makes that poor little girl one unhappy bug. thankfully Tman is a full-fledged Allergist. that's right, Tman MD is the MAN when it comes to taking care of our dry-skinned kiddos.
one of our best remedies for eczema are wet wraps. after bathing we'll wrap some moist towels/rags over the affected area and then cover with baggies or saran wrap. this helps to lock moisture into the skin and sooth the irritation caused by eczema allowing skin to heal faster.
one of the most common misconceptions is that you should bath less when you have eczema, but the truth is, you should bath more. instead of avoiding water, you should avoid hot temperatures and make sure to lather on the lotion immediately after bathing. don't wait a few minutes - those precious minutes allow the moisture to evaporate from your skin. instead, keep some tubes of Eucerin's latest Eczema Relief Instant Therapy nearby and slather your skin to softness.
