Managing Your Child's Eczema

Speaker: Dr Tim Brettig, The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH), Department of Allergy & Immunology

So many children live life with eczema or atopic dermatitis. What is eczema? Is it genetic? Can it be cured? This chronic condition can be debilitating for some. Life with a constant itch leads to sleep deprivation, skin infections and restrictions people wish they did not have. Diagnosis and advice on management which includes soap-free baths and showers (warm water not hot), lots of moisturiser, often steroid creams, bleach baths, wet dressings and more is critical to people with eczema. What about creams containing food items? Do we need to be careful to avoid them?
