So I haven’t posted for ages again…sorry to anyone reading. But truth me told eczema has taken a real back seat in our lives. I barely notice that it is there lurking on the skin. Summer started late….probably didn’t see any sun until late June….but bam when it came it really came!!
In July we enjoyed some gorgeous hot weather which went on and on for a good few weeks. So I stripped Ayla off and applied just enough sunscreen to stop any burning and let the sun do its magic. Within a week Ayla’s skin was noticeably better and after 3 weeks he skin was silky smooth. To the point that even the teachers were commenting on her lovely skin. With the decent summer and a dose of salt water on a camping trip Ayla has the best skin I have seen on her since she was a babe in arms.
For the first time in three years Ayla is sleeping without her sleep suits I have been slapping on huge dollops of cream for years and years then putting tight suits on and all of a sudden we are down to just centraben and cotton pjs. Gettting ready for bed has become a whole lot quicker.
I know for some people with eczema the summer months can be awful but for us it works. The impact it has on Aylas skin, which has a knock on effect on life in general has even made me consider emigrating….not the only reason but it would difficult go on the pro list!
