Controling The Itch
What is eczema?
Eczema (atopic dermatitis) is an inherited, chronic skin condition that usually appears in early childhood. Patches of skin become red, dry and itchy and may weep. Eczema is not contagious. There is no cure, but it can be managed. Treatment may include moisturisers, corticosteroids, different creams and ointments, coal tar and phototherapy.
What can you do?
As people with eczema will know the desire to scratch affected areas can become overwhelming. Scratching will only prolong the pain and resisting scratching can be very hard!
If you are a parent of a child who suffers from eczema then you will know the pain they go through every day. Wear gloves at night to minimize skin damage from scratching.
The Children’s Eczema Gloves from as little as £3.10 are ideal for protection during play or wearing after applying overnight creams. They are hardwearing and health friendly, made totally from biodegradable bamboo fibres. You can throw them in the wash at 60c and they will still maintain their shape and keep them clean.
We sell them individually wrapped in 5 different sizes for children up to 10 years old.
