Child Eczema

Eczema is a skin condition that is characterised by intense itchiness, redness, dryness and sometimes blistering, weeping and crusting, arising from inflammation of the skin. Eczema is quite common, with around 20% of children under the age of 5 years developing eczema.* Some of the most common triggers include irritants such as fabrics, soaps, scented products; heat and sweat; low humidity and saliva. Milder cases of eczema may be controlled through a good daily bathing and moisturising regimen.
