Cloths for wiping hands on after applying cream to eczema
Our super useful supply of cloths

1. Cloths to wipe our hands on

We are still using the packs of muslin cloths that we bought before he was even born. Thankfully they are still in one piece, despite endless laundering, after 4.5 years. Every time we put cream on MyItchyBoy, we wipe our hands on one of the cloths. We also use them to wipe it off the carpet and anywhere else it ends up.

2. Handheld technology device

When MyItchyBoy’s resisting cream being put on (either scheduled getting dressed time or in the day when he’s itchy) there’s one way that we can persuade him. It’s not great, am not proud, but sometimes the cream is more important than a few minutes of free kids apps.

One night light we use for applying cream to eczema in the night
One of our 3 night lights

3. Night lights

The inevitable night time interruptions mean that we have three night lights. One for gentle bedside lighting, one for lighting the room up enough to put cream on in the night without blinding anyone and an automatic one for the bathroom for hand-washing, piriton-giving and all that.

    Bless you and your son! Poor little guy! Have you found that the cream has helped him? I have a friend that had a son with eczema. She has been able to help him and he doesn’t have any more symptoms! Thank you for sharing your suggestions! Jennifer
