I am a mom of a three year old boy who is suffering from eczema (atopic dermatitis) since he was three months old. We tried and are still trying almost everything to help him, however we try to avoid cortico-steroids as much as possible. On this blog I want to discuss the treatments, facts I learned, and anything that could be helpful in fighting eczema. Every parent of a child with eczema knows how frustrating and daunting it can be to helplessly watch as your child is trying to tear off his skin. I am writing this blog to give me the feeling of at least doing something and to keep track of what we do and to share what we know and learn.
PS: I want to emphasize, that I am not a medical expert in any way. Although I am doing my best to provide correct and useful information, I am only a mom after all trying to understand this very complex and complicated disease.
PPS: Occasionally I talk on this blog about the products (creams, cloths, medications, etc.) we use. But this are no payed advertisements. None of the companies producing any of the products mentioned in any of the posts have any idea who I am and I receive no compensation for mentioning or linking to any of the products. I am simply sharing my experience. To some posts I might add this disclaimer at the end. To some I don’t, but it’s all the same.
