Eczema and Children
Itching is a common experience, however if it starts to interfere with you or your child's daily activities, it can be challenging to cope. Eczema refers to several different conditions where the skin is red, irritated and may sometimes form small, pus-filled bumps. The most common type of eczema is called atopic dermatitis.
Skin Care Tips for Sensitive Skin Types
If your skin is easily irritated, prone to drying or allergic reactions, or react adversely to temperature changes, or pollution, you likely have sensitive skin. Other common symptoms include reactions to shaving or other physical pressure, overreaction to cosmetics, or a tingling sensation on the skin without the presence of rashes or other physical signs. Sensitive skin affects the facial areas most commonly, but can include other areas of the body. Both genetics and environmental factors contribute to sensitive skin.
