Needing to see a doctor

Needing to see a doctor

Hello - I have 3 children of various ages all of which have eczema. Having lived through numerous flares, (and long nights and no sleep), I am beginning to feel a lot more confident in managing especially when it flares. During lockdown I have not seen our doctor as frequently as I would do as I feel I know what to do... do you think I should go back to the doctor for them to access my children's skin or do you think treating myself is fine? I don't actually have any worries about their skin but just wondered if you would recommend a professional review? Thank you

Dear Anna,

Thank you for your question. I think it would be a good idea for your children to see a doctor once a year.
Kind regards
Anton
