Help stop babies scratching Eczema

I stumbled across these in my search to help stop my son scratching at night, you may find then very useful too…
(wording taken from Scratch-sleeves website)

Stopping babies and toddlers scratching themselves can be a real challenge, especially as they get older and can take off traditional scratch mitts. ScratchSleeves are invaluable in coping with itchy, scratchy babies and toddlers. They stay on and minimize the damage done to skin, reducing the risk of infection and avoiding the itching of healing skin.

ScratchSleeves work in two ways:

  • The sleeve system ensures the mitts stay firmly in place on even the most determined babies and toddlers.
  • The unique dual layer mitts minimize the impact of scratching by isolating the action of the fingers. The two layers of the mitts slide over each other allowing the inner layer of stretch cotton to move with the baby’s fingers while the layer of silk remains stationary against the skin.

Originally developed to stop their own son scratching his face. They were so successful that we felt we had to share the product.

Below see my son with his first flare up of eczema, at about 6 month, worse because of his first big teething episode.
Then at about 2yrs you can see his eczema its still about but much much milder, sea water helps a lot with healing.
As a remedy 2 to 3 times a day I use a home-made massage oil recipe of castor oil, plum kernel oil, sesame oil with a few drops of Patchouli and Peppermint which help calm and stop infection and to cool the skin. (mail me for more info suzie@soothe-me.com).
You can also ask your doctor about allergy medicines and antihistamines that may help. HYDRATION is the key keep encouraging the child/baby to drink regularly, water if possible. (Please see my other posts for more on this topic)
