Bathtimes are one of the hardest times when it comes to eczema, I find. It is a time when your baby’s skin is in full view and you have time to look from most angles and assess. Bathtimes have reduced me to tears during times of a bad flare-up. It can be possible to forget about it most of the day and then naked, in the bath MIB can look like he has some hideous disease.
At other times, it can just be plain frustrating trying to have fun playing whilst saying ‘try not to scratch’ every few seconds.
