Eczema (atopic dermatitis) treatment for Kids.

Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis) is estimated to have been in existence for centuries. Little was known about the condition and how to best treat/manage it, but as time goes there has been a better understanding of this condition and solutions are coming up too. Some of us, here at Hawi, have been through the worst with atopic dermatitis for years. We have also seen cases of kids, some as young as newborns go through this skin condition. It can be quiet frustrating, for the kids and the parents too! Out of this need, the Kids Eczema Therapy Balm and the Black Seed Amla butter (for teens, and adults) were born. The doctor’s diagnosis and occasional flare-ups should not scare you anymore!

 

Why Eczema Occurs in Kids:

The reason why eczema occurs in the first place is not known. However, some of the widely known genetic and environmental factors pointed out by experts are genetics, irritants (eg. soap, detergents), allergens (such as pollen, pets), environmental triggers (extremely hot/cold weather), stress, food, hormones, microbes, etc.

Unfortunately, atopic dermatitis can start as early even on infants who are only a few months old. It mostly occurs on their forehead, cheeks, and/or on their scalp as well. This may spread to the knees, elbows, among other areas. In older children, eczema may manifest behind the knees, in the creases of the elbow, around the ankles, the inner wrists and around the neck too. As they get older the skin may get drier and even thicken, darken and get scarred too! This is a process termed as lichenification. The best way to tell if a child has eczema is to check for the following symptoms: dry, itchy skin, rashes, redness around the itchy areas, scales, and bumps that can leak fluid and then crust over. Regular moisturizers will not seem to get the job done to hydrate the skin and restore it back to health. These symptoms may flare-up every now and then, and unfortunately may occur even in their adulthood especially if left unmanaged/untreated.

 

 

Skin prone to eczema breakouts dries out fast, and needs all the extra effort to moisturize. There are many products out there that promise to help manage and treat eczema. What most people are not keen to do as they get them is check the ingredients, read on their short and long term effects, and see if the product creates dependency too! These steps are crucial, since whatever is applied on the skin goes straight to the bloodstream.

What to avoid when treating Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis) for Kids.

Most atopic dermatitis treatment options recommended by specialists are steroids-based, even for children. Steroids promise fast results – reducing inflammation on the skin, redness and itchiness too – temporarily. Little does the user know they’re creating dependency to a product that is meant to liberate them. The moment one discontinues use, the flare-ups may occur and might be even worse than before. These creams not only create dependency, but can also cause skin hyperpigmentation as well. If you are planning to stop using a steroid-based cream/moisturizer, not to worry. There’s a way out and a safer alternative.

Benefits of Hawi Kids Eczema Balm

Hawi Kid's Eczema Therapy Balm offers all of nature’s goodness on the skin – rejuvenation, moisturizing and healing! It contains Shea butter which is an emollient that helps lock moisture in the skin, which sorts out the excessive dryness. It has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that can help reduce skin inflammation. The Balm also contains other great ingredients such as Arrow root powder which soothes their irritated skin. It is a great talc-free solution for skin care! Other great, natural ingredients in the moisturizing balm are coconut oil, pine essential oil, grape seed oil, avocado oil and beeswax too! Eczema Therapy Balm packs a mighty punch.
