Children’s Eczema Care works with children and their families to help manage eczema well. We collaborate with other health providers including child health nurses, pharmacists, GPs, dermatologists, immunologists and paediatricians to ensure the best outcomes for children.
Eczema (also known as atopic eczema or atopic dermatitis) is a very common condition where the skin is dry, red and itchy. Children with eczema often scratch throughout the night and have poor sleep. As a result, it can also affect their behaviour, learning and development. This can impact on the whole family.
Good management of eczema is likely to reduce need for hospital referral and improve quality of life for children and their families. Recent research suggests it may also help in preventing the development of food allergies in high risk babies.
We see babies and children with eczema.
We also work with other healthcare providers including GPs, Child Health Nurses, Allergists and Dermatologists.
Clinic appointments include:
a detailed health assessment for your child
development of an eczema management plan
demonstration of how to apply eczema treatments correctly
Eczema workshops are also available for Healthcare Providers.
