Heat & Bedtime
Your child will most likely itch more at night as they get hot under the covers and most will get into the habit of waking up. It is best if your child sleeps in their own bed to avoid overheating. Cotton or bamboo bed linen and at most one thin cotton blanket is the best bedding for your child. Woollen blankets, plastic mattress protectors and doonas should not be used. Constant waking and scratching at night and the sign of blood on the sheets the next morning are signs your child’s skin is too dry and more moisturising or oiling needs to be applied. Keeping your child cool helps reduce the itch.
Heat & Bath time
As heat can aggravate your child’s condition we recommend you bath your child once a day in warm (not hot) water adding a capful of Grahams body & bath oil to the bath (using this as a soap substitute). Soaps can dry out the skin. Try and bath your child at least two hours before bedtime.
Dryness & the skin
Keep your child’s skin moisturised as much as possible during the day, this will help with the dryness. Water, air-blowing heaters, cleaning agents, soap, swimming and the environment can all be drying to your child’s skin..
Can my child go swimming?
Yes, but if they are having flare ups your doctor may suggest the swimming stops until the rash improves. Before swimming we recommend you apply moisturiser to the skin. After swimming wash the chorine/salt water with cool fresh water apply bath oil, and then apply a moisturiser before dressing.
