Eczema doesn’t affect kids’ skin health, but it is also carries higher risk of being bullied, particularly in school. Several steps can be taken to manage this.
Steroids are often used as of treatment in eczema and psoriasis. Although steroid acts fast and effectively, it carries side effects if not used properly.
Eczema can be defined as a medical skin condition where patches of skin become inflamed, swell up, cracked or filled with blisters. These patches can be itchy, especially during the night, a time where eczema seems to flare up to the point that it may be difficult to sleep. See our tips for a good sleep here.
Exercising, causes people to sweat. As our body temperature increases it may irritate eczema patches. Meanwhile sweat on our body evaporates in an attempt to cool our skin down. However during this process our skin can lose moisture while the sodium in sweat further dehydrates and even stings eczema spots. This in turn triggers eczema flares causing itch and the desire to scratch every single part of that eczema patch.
