How to Manage Your Child’s Eczema

Does Your Child Have Eczema?

Does your child have frequent itchy rashes? They may be suffering from atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema. As parents, it can be very difficult watching our children deal with a health issue, especially one that can make them feel so uncomfortable. Eczema can impact a child’s daily life, but luckily, there are many ways parents can help their child keep flare-ups to a minimum. Keep reading to learn more about childhood eczema and how to treat it, including trying new investigational medication through an Atopic Dermatitis Clinical Trial.

What is Eczema?

Children with eczema (atopic dermatitis) tend to get patches of dry, itchy skin. The itch can make it hard for them to sleep. Plus, scratching can cause the rashes to get infected. While there is no known cure for eczema, it can be treated so your child feels better. There are also ways to help your child avoid eczema flare-ups. Eczema treatments usually target four common problems: dryness, itching, irritated skin (inflammation), and infection.

Maintain a Skincare Regimen

One of the most important things to do if your child has eczema is to keep up with a regular skincare regimen and understand what to do if your child is experiencing a flare-up.

Eczema makes the skin very dry, so it is important to make sure you regularly bathe your child to prevent infections and use a moisturizing lotion immediately after exiting the bath. Not every bath needs to include soap, but if you do use soap, make sure it is fragrance-free and hypoallergenic.

If your child is experiencing a flare-up, make sure you stop your child from scratching as much as possible. Keep your child’s nails short and use wet wrap treatments to repair the skin barrier.

Avoid Eczema Triggers

One of the best ways to manage eczema with your child is to prevent triggers. Some eczema triggers include:

  • Dust mites
  • Fragrances (including perfumes, colognes, air fresheners, candles, incense)
  • Heat and sweat
  • Hormones
  • Insect bites and stings
  • Pet dander
  • Pollen
  • Tobacco smoke
  • Wool and synthetic fabrics

Atopic Dermatitis Clinical Trial

If your child is suffering from eczema and you want to try something new, Cahaba Dermatology & Skin Health Center is currently conducting a clinical trial for children experiencing eczema.

Your child is eligible to participate if they:

  • Are between the ages of 18 years of age and considered of legal age and able to consent with parental/guardian consent or read and sign the Informed Consent as applicable in your country
  • Have been diagnosed with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis (for at least 12 months) Are experiencing signs and symptoms of atopic dermatitis that are not manageable with your current treatment regimen
  • Weigh at least 40 kg (88 lbs)

The study aims to reduce the signs and symptoms of eczema, which include painful rashes, intense itching, and disrupted sleep.
