ATOPIC ECZEMA IN CHILDREN:
DEALING WITH SKIN RASHES THAT ITCH AT BEDTIME

Article Read Duration 3 min read

Eczema or atopic dermatitis in children can be particularly tricky at bedtime with skin rashes that itch and eczema flare ups interfering with sleep. To offer children (and their parents!) the best chance of a restful night:

• Prepare for bed with a lukewarm bath followed by a good eczema cream for toddlers and children
• Help children keep cool in bed with light bedding and cotton pyjamas. Turn the heating down in winter and keep a window open in summer
• Keep a Lipikar Stick AP+ on hand to help zap itches during the night
