Parenting + Eczema

The ScratchSleeves Blog

This blog is about the day to day challenges of living with an eczema baby or child. Parenting an eczema child is much like parenting any other child – but some things are that little bit more complicated.

Parenting + Eczema shares our experience of bringing up a scratchy eczema baby. We hope that it will help you to enjoy the good stuff and avoid some of the pit-falls. As eczema is such a variable condition, we have also found some lovely guest bloggers to share their unique experience and expertise.
