Eczema | #AtoZ in 100 words

An itch here, An itch there,
An itch too irritating to bear
Dry, flaky, angry skin
Oozing water, burning ring

Walk in dust, itch itch itch
Ingest allergen, itch itch itch
Sniff a flower, aatchoo aatchoo
Can’t breathe all night, snore zzzzzz snore!

Tubes & tubes of lotion
Tubs and bottles of creams
Every brand, you name it
Bought, tried & tossed it.

Sleeping with 4 tubes of creams
Instead of pillows for dreams
One for the fingers, one for the toes
One the steroid, and one the nose

It’ll pass as I grow
Is All I want to know!

Eczema can afflict many babies from birth. It can be a very difficult and un-inclusive condition. Although not contagious it can be very limiting for the person suffering from it. Eczema doesn’t have a cure. It can only be managed. Life can also be very challenging for caregivers of people with eczema. My little babyT has eczema which in addition to his dairy allergy makes every day living quite a challenge. In the sheltered environment of our home, he is relatively episode free. But the outside world is a threat.

This blog post is a part of #AtoZ in 100 words series where Nikita of Mrs.Writes-a-Latte and a bunch of other bloggers will write 26 posts this year on topics beginning from A to Z. A short and simple way of writing, seeking inspiration & learning from each other. And challenging – because it must all happen in 100 words. Plus a picture to go with it. 🙂

      There is no cure for it. You just have to be careful and avoid the triggers. It cannot be prevented also. Its a condition which most kids are born with. And its become very common today. ☹

  4. Mommyingbabyt, thanks so much for the post.Much thanks again. Really Cool.
