When eczema strikes, it can be really hard to break the itchy, sore skin cycle! Specialist clothing can really help with this!

Does your little one suffer with eczema, or do you? Do you struggle to control it at night? Fear not, we have the solution for you!

Everything for Eczema - super soft clothing for those with eczema! www.intolerantgourmand.com

Just before Christmas, the lovely Gail at Everything for Eczema got in contact after seeing the struggle we were having with keeping Callum comfortable during a bad eczema flare. She wanted to send him a set of her specially designed pyjamas for him to try, and I was so grateful. Callum was too!

We’ve been testing them out over the past few weeks, and they have proven to be a total godsend!

Why are these pyjamas so special?

The pyjamas are made primarily of bamboo because it is easily the best fabric for eczema. It's super soft, hypoallergenic, breathable, and absorbent and way better than cotton for sensitive skin.

Callum certainly agrees with this, as he’s commented many times about how soft the pyjamas are! They have also made a big difference at night time, in allowing his skin to breathe. This is very important for people who suffer with eczema. Sweaty skin blocks the pores, and causes the skin to become aggravated. This then contributes to the eczema cycle with itchy, sore skin.

Gail initially created pyjamas for adults, before then being asked to create pyjamas for younger children, but with flip mittens so the tops didn't have to be taken off at breakfast, or during toilet visits at night. She had been chatting online to another eczema/allergy mum in Australia who designed her own sleeping bags for eczema, Bamboo Bubby. They decided to collaborate and do the PJs together.

Gail told us ‘It's been so lovely working with Kelly and having a business partner in Australia, even though we've never met. We both come from the same starting point - wanting to help children and families get a good night's sleep. The PJs have sold really well worldwide. It really does show me just how widespread eczema is and how many families are struggling with it around the globe’.

Why was Everything for Eczema set up?

Gail set up Everything For Eczema after her youngest daughter Tallulah had severe eczema from six months old. Gail spent weeks online trying find anything to help stop her scratching and help them get a good night's sleep. During this time, she came across lots of little companies that had been set up by parents of children with eczema and allergies who had designed and manufactured their own products simply because there was so little help available. These companies are based worldwide so Gail wanted to bring them all under one roof so there would only be one delivery charge, and to save parents the hours of searching that she had experienced.

Gail then started being contacted by adults who had been suffering from eczema since childhood. There was even less available for them. So, she decided to start by designing a new range of pyjamas for adults called SOOTHE. They are the same design as the ones that Callum's been trying out, just a lot bigger.

They proved to be a HUGE success and sold out really quickly, but fear not because Gail is in the process of getting some more made.

Everything for Eczema - super soft clothing for those with eczema! www.intolerantgourmand.com

What did Callum think?

From the get go, Callum was really excited by these pyjamas. It’s always hard to find comfortable sleepwear that won’t make him too hot. Any pyjamas we do buy, need to be long sleeved and trousers, to prevent him from scratching in his sleep. If any skin is exposed, he scratches it and it’s a totally involuntary process, he’s not even aware he’s doing it.

The pyjamas come in various colours, and sizes, making them suitable for all! Callum specifically chose a blue pair because that just so happens to be his favourite colour.

They are easy to wash, and don’t shrink after washing.

The most important part for me is that the softness remains, and they don’t bubble up – this is crucial for eczema sufferers as this can aggravate the skin and cause the itchy sensation to increase.

What did I think?

I am so impressed with what Gail has achieved and created. Like me, she saw a much-needed solution for a gap in the market and proactively sought to change it. I recommend these pyjamas to anyone who has eczema, particularly with eczema on the moderate to severe side. They really have helped Callum so much. He’s had a number of reactions during the time we’ve been testing them out, and the pyjamas have helped to stop his skin getting really bad.

**COMPETITION TIME**

Gail has very kindly offered one of our readers the chance to win a pair of pyjamas either for themselves or for their child.

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is to answer this simple question by commenting on this blog post:

Don't be afraid to keep going back to your GP to try different creams. After an agonising few months for our little one, we found that on top of the flare ups he was reacting to the most commonly prescribed emollients such as cetreben and E45, making the itching and pain even worse. We have found Hydromol works best for him, along with specific steroids so keep trying until you find the right one for you.

After too many flareups recently caused my own eczema to get infected, needing antibiotics, my top tip for myself on that front is to use Dermol 500 rather than my other eczema moisturisers as this one prevents infection. I have had so many entirely sleepless nights over the past year where I have been awake scratching for up to five hours before finally dropping off, exhausted.

Try and keep as much skin covered as possible to make it harder to scratch (as you've discovered!) and apply a cream regularly - it feels nice and cool as well as hopefully helping to heal.

A lukewarm bath to help take the heat out but dont stay in too long. And of course moisturize.

I try to keep cool and have lukewarm showers. Coconut oil usually helps to moisturise provided I've caught it early.

Oil arum in the bath and e45 cream afterwards. We also use non bio washing powder and sensitive fabric conditioner to prevent any irritants on their skin

My eldest suffers really badly with eczema and sensitive skin. I really struggle to keep on top of it because the slightest change can upset it and make him itchy and he will scratch until he bleeds. We use Oilatum Junior cream every single night before bed which does seem to keep it at bay, but it would be great to have some bamboo PJs for him as often the itchiness does seem to flare up at night, especially when he gets warm! Bamboo is a gorgeous material! My smallest had a bamboo sleepsuit I wish it still fit him!

I actually use Sudocrem, it works very well for us. Also moisturising and keeping trouble areas covered.

For me the best way to get relief in the short term is applying a cold compress to the area. For long term relief and help with healing I use various types of cream

cream, cream and more cream. In the bath, under socks & gloves, if she gets really bad she goes to bed with no pj's on to help keep her cool, she also doesnt have a proper duvet as she sweats too much making her eczema worse.

Our daughter has severe eczema. My top tip is to have a very short bath or shower at bathtime, instead of maybe a longer soak or playtime in the bath, and we use a specialised emollient based body wash. We do not use bubble bath in her bath as this only makes her eczema worse. We also cover her from head to toe in a specialised emollient cream at least twice a day. We have also found that a humidifier in her bedroom helps as dry air can be a huge factor in making eczema worse.

Keep kids distracted and don't let them scratch if possible! Keep them in loose clothing and bathe in emolients.

Keeping the skin moisturised and if the skin appears to be starting to get worse, make sure that you tackle it straight away with a cream from the pharmacist/doctor.
But, also I have found that letting the skin breath helps, and drying properly after washing. Also use a gentle soap, and for children make sure that any bubbles etc are kind to skin.
