Does your child suffer from eczema?
Atopic dermatitis affects 10-15% of infants, making it the most common chronic childhood disease. This skin disorder causes children to experience severe itching and can take its toll on the entire family. Itching disrupts sleep, which in turn can lead to insomnia for parents too.

Scratching is a consequence of the itching caused by atopic eczema. However, although the consequences of scratching are very harmful for atopic skin, unfortunately, 100% of individuals suffering from eczema scratch themselves. And, to tell a child to stop scratching is useless because the comment will exasperate the child and make him or her want to scratch even more!

To sweeten your child’s day, here are few alternatives to scratching.

Moisturizing | Hydration is essential to prevent and soothe itching.

Avene Thermal Spring Water | Applying prolonged sprays or compresses soaked in Avene Thermal Spring Water soothes itching sensation. It is recommended to then apply an emollient.

Freshness | To put the Avene Thermal Spring Water spray in the refrigerator reduces itchiness. We recommend to mist the Avene Thermal Spring Water and, then ventilate to increase the feeling of freshness

Moreover, do not forget to leave a XeraCalm A.D Lipid-replenishing balm or a XeraCalm A.D Lipid-replenishing cream close to the child’s bed in case of itching sensation during the night.
