Effective tricks to combat scratching

We know that saying “Don’t scratch!” is not the answer, so we want to offer alternatives that will help you understand the risks of scratching and find healthier ways to relieve irritation.

  • The right grooming routine: As mentioned in our previous post, Basic skin care tips for children, a proper skin care routine is essential for skin with eczema. Check out our previous recommendations to make sure you don’t miss anything.
  • Apply thermal water: Spray or wrap the skin with thermal water for 10-15 minutes. Afterwards, moisturise the skin with the cream to help it penetrate.
  • Harness the power of cold: Use cooling techniques to numb itching, such as spraying cooled thermal water or applying a cold gel pack wrapped in a cotton cloth.
  • Cotton gloves for sleep: Avoid scratching at night by wearing cotton gloves while you sleep.
  • Short, clean nails: Keep your nails short and clean to prevent injuries and infections.
  • Keep hands and mind busy: Keep your hands and mind busy to distract yourself from itching. Find good habits and fun activities to keep you focused on the positive.
  • Inveskin Dermcontrol Cream: Always have an effective and reliable cream to relieve itching and irritation. We recommend Inveskin Dermcontrol, which is proven to be effective against irritation, redness and itching thanks to its patented EGF (epidermal growth factor) solution, which also helps the skin to regenerate.

We hope these practical tips will help you and your children effectively manage itch and improve the quality of life for those affected.
