When Eczema strikes, use the effective treatment of Elica

Eczema can be unbearable for children because it can interrupt their sleep at night. If you see them rubbing their affected skin on bedsheet, pillows or other things in an attempt to relieve the itch, chances are they may get infection just by doing that.

Eczema is a non-contagious, inflammatory skin condition that is characterized by itching, redness, and scaly rashes. These symptoms can be painful, cause skin coloring changes, and blisters. It mostly appear on the legs, arms, face and hands. It is treatable,  always keep your child's skin properly moisturized to help keep away from being dry.

For your first aid, you can always apply petroleum jelly on the affected part because it contain moisturizing oil than and is effective on keeping the skin moisturized.

Elica ambassadors celebrity mom Cheska Kramer and kid Scarlett graced the launch of Elica on August 19 at Ascott Hotel, BGC and shared her daughter's itch story in the “Sweet Dreams with Mometasonefuroate (Elica)”  “Scar couldn’t sleep talaga when she gets eczema flare-ups kasi it’s so itchy and she keeps on scratching,” Cheska said. During the event, the causes of Eczema and how it could negatively impact children were discussed.

Such is the case for celebrity mom Cheska Garcia-Kramer and her daughter Scarlett. According to Cheska, Scarlett used to cry at night because of her itchy rashes. But after their doctor recommended mometasonefuroate or Elica, a topical steroid from Bayer Philippines, both mom and child saw results within 24 hours. The peaceful rests returned and since then, both mother and daughter have had sweet dreams.

“Our pediatrician recommended Elica and it really helped relieve Scarlett of the itch, redness and swelling because of her eczema,” Cheska said.

Eczema flare-ups can be triggered by several factors, including dust mites, family pets, heat or harsh soaps. “These triggers should be controlled in order to avoid the symptoms of eczema,” Dr. LyraYamat iterated.

When a child can’t sleep at night, it’s usually because of the monsters under the bed. And that keeps mommies awake too. That’s why they do everything in their power to drive away the scares so that kids can have a good night’s rest. But there’s one monster that is difficult to put to sleep: the monster that attacks the skin, eczema.

Eczema is characterized by red, dry, itchy rashes on the skin.It is more common in children than in adults. It can also have a huge negative impact on a kid’s life, like sleep deprivation.

Flare-ups may require more than just moisturizers and in such instances, a fast and powerful treatment is needed. Elica, a topical steroid, is considered to be the first line of defense for eczema. It can help relieve eczema symptoms with visible results in 24 hours, and needs only to be applied once daily, unlike most topical steroids that are applied twice a day. Moreover, clinical studies have demonstrated Elica’s efficacy and safety profile. Elica has also been recommended and prescribed by doctors for many years.

“Eczema should be treated immediately, because it can affect a child’s self-esteem, social activities and of course, sleep,” Dr. Yamat further explained.

When Eczema strikes, use the effective treatment of Elica and see results in 24 hours, so that both kids and moms can sleep tight.
