Here’s a quick summary of the bath time steps, to re-cap.

Step 1 : The temperature of the bath water should not be too warm or hot.

Step 2 : Add emollient bath product to the water in line with the pack instructions

Step 3 : Apply the bath water gently over the skin

Step 4 : After the bath, pat your child’s skin dry

Step 5 : Apply an emollient moisturiser to all areas of the skin to help restore the skin barrier

eczema tips for families
My children have been lucky enough not to suffer from Eczema so I can not give a personal endorsement to the products mentioned, although I have heard great things about Oilatum from friends who’s children do suffer badly with Eczema.

It’s also been emphasised that children don’t always need a bath every day, and if your child does suffer with eczema, it may be better to limit baths and not bath them every night.

I’m sharing the video to hopefully be of use for any of you who do have Eczema in the family, and if anyone has some tips or advice to share please do leave those in the comments so that others can benefit from your experience.
