Is your little one’s life dominated by the misery of eczema? 90% of sufferers spend much of their day itching, so it’s little wonder that it tends to make young kids cry out of frustration. So, as a parent, you’re naturally concerned about the problem and are probably asking yourself, “Will my child grow out of eczema? .

It’s a commonly asked question in GP offices up and down the country, and it’s one that we aim to answer here. So, come with us now as we look more closely at the subject.

So, Will My Child Grow Out of Eczema?

Eczema is a non-contagious condition that results in inflamed, irritated and itchy skin and the most common form in children is atopic dermatitis. The question of, will my child outgrow eczema?  is a complex one, but it may rear its head pretty early on, as babies under the age of 6 months of age can be impacted by the problem.

Characterised by dry, discoloured patches on the skin, as well as redness and scaliness, persistent eczema can carry on into adulthood, but not always. Some people have it as kids and go on to only have occasional flare-ups with several years in between each episode.

Even Now, Eczema Isn't Entirely Understood

While science has uncovered a lot about eczema, it’s still not entirely understood. For instance, the exact cause of the skin condition isn’t known, although family history, allergies and environmental factors are known to play a big part.

As much as we’d love to be able to tell you that atopic dermatitis is only going to be a temporary problem for your child, it’s not as simple as that. Some kids stop getting eczema symptoms from the age of 3 or 4, but they may continue to have ongoing dry skin issues.

The Best Way to Treat Eczema When It Appears

Visit your doctor about your child’s eczema, and you’ll likely be given an emollient cream that may provide some relief. However, as you may already know, these creams don’t allow the skin to breathe, meaning they tend just to manage the problem rather than improve it.

HappySkin eczema clothing, on the other hand, allows your child’s skin to regain its innate ability to control its temperate by sweating when it’s hot or holding onto moisture when cold. Our TENCEL/cotton bodysuits and their DreamSkin® coating help to stimulate the subdermal sensors that become dormant when eczema strikes and really get to the heart of the problem.
