Children with eczema

1st June 2007

The British Skin Foundation (BSF) says that children with eczema could receive some relief from the symptoms of their condition if their parents avoided using harsh detergents.

Indy Rihal of the BSF said that soaps and rough clothing can make the eczema worse and advised parents to try to avoid using soaps and detergents and ensure children wear loose, comfortable clothes. Eczema is a common condition in children, which usually begins in the first few weeks of life and tends to be inherited in families.
