Psoriasis, eczema for children: moisturizing rules
Eczema and psoriasis: how to moisturise your child's skin If your child has eczema or psoriasis, moisturizing their skin requires your attention every day. With patience (and a few tips), you can help your child to use the treatment every day in complete peace of mind.

The result is insomnia and stress for your child... But also for you.

Skin that's well-moisturised protects against the onset of flare-ups and sometimes unbearable itching. This reduces the risk of secondary infection. The inflammation subsides and the urge to scratch fades.
