Distract them from scratching their itchy skin
Engage your child in activities or hobbies of their interest to take their minds off their urge to scratch their itchy skin. Fun activities keep their minds and hands busy at the same time. Some activities could be creative ones like drawing, painting, or arts and crafts. You could also let them play with their toys or have them dance around to energetic songs. For babies and toddlers, having toys helps distract them during bath time and diaper changes.
Remember that there are different remedies for eczema (atopic dermatitis). Not all treatments work for all children. Dealing with eczema is a case to case basis. In the end, follow the ones that work best for your child’s condition. If symptoms persist, consult your doctor.
