This is my 9 year old’s stance on the whole eczema business. She, naturally hates this skin condition she is living with and decides to express it in this way! How can I blame her though? What I have found helpful is to try, as hard as it is to turn eczema into something positive.

‘It’s your body’s way of trying to protect you’ I tell her ‘It’s telling you you’re doing something it doesn’t like, and it wants you to change it’ this helps her in coping with the condition a little more and i even find her talking to her skin saying ‘Oh calm down, it’s only a bit of sun. I’ll go in the shade in a minute’ LOL, it’s really sweet actually.

How do you try to turn eczema into something more bearable? Let me know!
