Don't you just love photos of crying kids? The one above is one of my favorites, but I'm sure 3Po doesn't feel the same way. He's probably crying because his big sister pinched him or something, but with all that eczema on his cheeks, he had a lot to cry about during his first year!
3Po has suffered from eczema since he was 6 months old, and he hasn't outgrown it yet. Even now, at 8 years old, he continues to have outbreaks on his arms and legs, especially during the dry winter months. We keep it under control with regular moisturizing, and 3Po has gotten "used" to it -- but you can never get "used" to the incessant itchiness. We remind him to try not to scratch, because he could break the skin and get an infection, but it's difficult to stop him -- and it breaks my heart to see him so uncomfortable.
Neosporin knows there are many, many families with eczema problems, so they have come out with a line of products that help bring skin relief to kids (and a bit of mental relief to their worried parents!) Neosporin Eczema Essentials (available in your drugstore's first-aid aisle, or online at Walmart.com) is a 3-part system which includes a daily cream, daily body wash and anti-itch cream. It sounds great because it combats dryness and irritation (which, as any eczema parent knows, is eczema's BFF) not only with a cream, but with a body wash. It's also great to have that itch relief when you need it! I'm definitely going to check out Neosporin Eczema Essentials line.
