We have a history of eczema on my side of the family, both my dad and sister have it. R. has dry skin. So my little darling has been struggling with really dry skin since birth and bouts of eczema for a year now. I think comparer to some children hers is ok, it's only in some areas (left ellbow and wrist) and we have it under control by moisturizing constantly.
She only has it on her left wrist.
I wonder if that's what wakes her at night because she'll be scratching away by the time I go in to get her back to sleep. I trim her nails as much as I can but she still manages to scratch till her wounds bleed.
The pediatrician recommends corticoidal creams but no way am I going to use that on her, especially if it's not severe.
I googled some and came across Scratchsleeves. They were exactly what I was looking for. 2 days into wearing them and her wrist has cleared up a little. I am now waiting for my Lovely Greens Neem Balm order to arrive, I've heard it does wonders for itchy, inflamed skin.
