I am a beauty therapist and when it comes to wrapping my little one, I put her in my home salon on my beauty bed and pretend I am giving her a little treatment like one of my clients. 😊

To make eczema treatment fun for my 3 year old - since it’s his whole body it takes longer so we try to be fast like Spider-Man. Throw web shooters

We wrap her special doll at the same time we wrap my granddaughter. It’s a great distraction for her and she likes to feel she’s helping.

We keep it fun with singing and finger games, toys, and videos of tractor. Sometimes we first have to prioritize a big emotional release or some rough play 😁. Toddlers keep you on your toes! And some days it's one long exhausting battle.

We do “massage” my son (5) loves his massages he even uses a massage roller/ball at times when he is itchiest and he says it helps with the itchy sensation and it stops the scratching sometimes. We also have “ninja 🥷” cooling towels we use to tie around his head/arms 😂 Whatever works on the day I roll with it. He also wears bracelets/rubber bands/ hair ties on the wrist different colours/textures, ones we make with beads to encourage fidgeting over scratching.

We play games, sing songs and try to distract her. Often letting her help with ointments when possible helps too!

I let my son play games or watch you tube kids. It's the only time I let him have technology so he loves it 😉

I'd love to enter for one of my son's preschool classmates. He has endless allergies which lead to eczema outbreaks. At a birthday party on the weekend, the boy's mum brought along his own special lollies. One thing i have observed is that this wonderful mum makes sure her son doesn't miss out on fun things.

I feel your pain, I had eczema like that, I have photos from my 1st birthday in 1949. Thankfully at age 73 I got Dupixent. I had eczema for 73 years, sheer hell. A new life since Dupixent. Off caravanning soon, first time in my life I will be travelling with controlled eczema, no itch, sheer bliss.

Thank you
