This is the face of a child with eczema. He has really hit the skin issue jackpot, this one.

He may have inherited his good looks from my husband but we’re also pretty sure he inherited his sensitive skin from him too. He’s the only one of four that had cradle cap (still has it at almost 3) and he has both atopic dermatitis and contact dermatitis, otherwise known as eczema.

The Symptoms of Eczema in Kids

Our little guy has flare-ups where his skin gets red, dry and cracked. It looks bad because he seems to have the worst flare-ups on his face and arms. These are usually brought on during extreme heat (hello sweat) and during the cold, dry season–like right now when we’re waiting for the snow to hit.

He also has flare-ups when he comes in contact with certain things. We are still trying to get to the bottom of what causes his reactions (we’re thinking artificial food dyes & citrus) but almost instantly after he has certain foods his skin becomes red, inflamed, and raw, with raised bumps which eventually turns into a dry and scaly rash.

Getting Eczema Relief with Dermakalm Eczema Cream for Infants and Children

Our LO may not be comfortable with these dry spots and rashes on his body, but he is picky about what he allows us to put on him. Luckily, he likes Dermakalm Eczema Cream for Infants and Children.

A big thing for our LO is scent and if he smells something he doesn’t like he won’t even let us put it on. Thankfully this cream, developed with dermatologists, is fragrance-free, a winner before it even gets to work.

Speaking of getting to work, this non-greasy cream works to temporarily relieve the symptoms of eczema like itching, red spots, dry skin, scaling, oozing, abrasions and hardening of the skin with just a thin layer of product. We don’t personally have all those symptoms but with use 2-3 times a day, it definitely helped to quickly relieve the itching, irritation, redness, dry skin and scaling.

As a parent, I can appreciate that it is free of corticosteroids, parabens and artificial colouring (which in our case is the suspected irritant). Our guy is not so little anymore but this Dermakalm cream can be used for LOs as young as 8-weeks-old.

More Information on Eczema and Dermakalm 

If you suspect you or your little one may have eczema you should book an appointment with your doctor. There is no known cure for eczema so the most you could do is try to stay away from known irritants and treat symptoms as they appear. You can get more information on eczema and the different types here. You may also want to read this post on myths and facts so that you can clear up some common misconceptions.

For more information on the Dermakalm Eczema Cream for Infants and Children, you can head to the Dermakalm website. They’ve got a whole line for eczema sufferers, psoriasis too.

Do you have a LO in your life that could benefit from a cream like this?

    My son had terrible eczema as an infant/toddler – he still has it now but thankfully it’s not as bad anymore! I haven’t heard of Dermakalm before I will totally check that out!

    I had really bad eczema as a child (and get some flare ups as an adult oddly with stress) – I remember how horrible it was! I havent heard of the Dermakalm brand before – but it’s always nice to have something else to add to the calming asenal!

    Poor boy, it’s dreadful for kids to suffer from eczema, they tend to scratch where it itches making matters worse. This cream sounds like it could be a huge help for these kids.

    This seems really similar to a product we used while living in the States. Our daughter had eczema and we used Aquaphor, not sure if it can be bought here, but very similar. I have a bit of eczema on my chest will have to see if this stuff is available around here!

    Creams help with the dry and itch, but sometimes the problem is from acidic foods/stomach acid. Reducing my stomach acid problems helped me greatly. I didn’t know that til recently and was relieved to learn that.

    It’s great that there is a cream that will actually work and that the kids will put on, I am hearing how many children have this now compared to 20 years ago, it’s crazy

    I am going to look for this for myself. Developed a new patch of itch which is brand new to me.

    I have not heard of this product before. I struggle with extremely dry skin in winter and random eczema flare ups. Good to hear of yet another product I can try.
