What causes red spots and itchy rashes on a child's skin?


Posted at Sep 12 2018 11:51 AM

Being a mom comes with a whole new world of things to worry about--more so when your child has eczema.

If your motherly instinct tells you that the redness and rough patches on your child's skin is more than a simple skin irritation, that is probably the case.

Searching for the cause and cure online may give you a bit of assurance, but consulting a doctor is best in order to pinpoint what it is—it might just be eczema.

Majority of children with eczema improve as they get older. However, those with more severe conditions may continue to have flare ups until adulthood.

While eczema might not have any cure, there are several ways to manage it without interfering with your child's day-to-day activities, including the use of doctor-recommended Elica (generic name Mometasone Furoate).

As what these 'Eczemoms'—moms with kids with eczema—will tell you in their latest webisode, they found that Elica, an over-the-counter mild topical corticosteroid that comes in cream and ointment form, can ease the redness, rough patches, and itchiness brought by eczema.

According to the Eczemoms, it is comforting to know that their children are not the only ones who experience the condition. Elica helps manage the condition, and allows their children to freely go about their daily lives.

Are you an Eczemom too? Watch these moms talk about their experiences, and how they managed eczema when they encountered it for the first time with their child.

Do not use for more than 2 weeks. Use with caution on children and pregnant women. If symptoms persist, consult your doctor.
