Dry Skin and Itching
Dry skin and intense itching could lead to a flare-up. Dry skin could easily become rough or tight. Always apply lotion after every bath. Make sure the skin is provided with the right moisture to avoid dry skin. Avoid using regular laundry detergent for a child’s clothes.

Prevention is better than cure. You should avoid the things could trigger flare-ups. Regularly moisturize the skin daily and avoid sweating or overheating. Also, monitor the food the kids eat as some of them might trigger eczema.
Sometimes stress and anxiety can also worsen flare-ups. Make sure the kids have time to relax and getting enough sleep.
Roughly scratching skin will cause infection and bleeding. Cool the skin with a wet towel or apply a cream to the itchy spot. You may also use distraction to avoid scratching their skin. And most importantly, avoid scratching to prevent infection.
