Keratosis Pilaris is a common skin condition and is thought to be harmless, but it still can look uncomfortable and inflamed and can be very itchy. The most likely times for children to be affected are either before two years old or during their teenage years.
Seeing your little eczema bub always uncomfortable, red, irritated and often scratching until he bleeds is a really hard thing to watch. I have lived it with my two eczema bubs and have also spoken to many mums and dads in the pharmacy and through itchy baby co. going through the same thing with their eczema babies and eczema toddlers. We all want to do everything we can to keep our eczema bubs as comfortable as possible and manage and treat their eczema as best we can.
