No news for parents of children with eczema…..caring for a child with eczema is hard work!
In a study published this week, researchers report that in a study of almost 12,000 families with children who have eczema, mothers have significantly disturbed sleep quality, feel exhausted all day and then have trouble going to sleep.
Surprisingly, the mothers had poor sleep even if the child’s eczema was under control; they still felt they did not sleep well, even if the child was not waking up itchy in the middle of the night.
Exhaustion in the parents can affect children’s well-being and development.
Taking good care of eczema by including the use of a good moisturiser like Liberate Your Skin makes children more comfortable and decreases the severity and frequency of flares of their eczema.
