We have extended the Liz Lovely Giveaway & will be throwing a new super fabulous and hint-hint made in Michigan giveaway (hopefully that will be up by tomorrow so check back!).
Hux is also keen to candy canes this year. Last year he had no clue what "candy" was, and for the most part he just thinks candy is the chewable papaya enzymes we give him, but he knows those pretty red + white striped canes will prove to be something tasty if he could just eat through that darn wrapper...
We had a pretty good break from the red itchies but as soon as the temperature went south, along with the humidity, poor little Hux's skin took a turn for the worse.
It first started when we were in Michigan in November--much cooler temps, and a really dry woodstove-heated house took it's toll on Huxley. He also was stealing bites of his Grandma's morning yogurts, which I suspect played a big role in the massive breakout too...darn dairy! We keep hoping he will phase out of it, but the reality is that he just can't tolerate it.
Eczema is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that affects 35 million Americans. With Hux, his eczema starts on his stomach and back. It's appears as a slightly raised skin-toned circular small patch that is everywhere. Putting lotion on him feels like greasing a piece of sandpaper. It's awful.
Lately though, his eczema has been popping up in the creases of his elbows and knees. Some irritants or triggers can be rough fabrics, such as wool, soaps & fragrances, cold and dry weather, and ironically, heat and sweating too.
We have come up with a barrage of counter-attacks for when eczema strikes.
A humidifier in our room
Keeping our place at a comfortable temperature (around 67)
Omitting dairy from our diet
Infrequent baths (just sponging Hux down with a washcloth on non-bathnight)
Slathering Hux with skin protectants such as NEOSPORIN® ESSENTIALS™ & Coconut Oil
NEOSPORIN® ESSENTIALS™ is an awesome new solution we've found for eczema. I love that it contains colloidal oatmeal, which is what we use in the bathtub when Huxley does get bathed. This cream is anibiotic and fragrance free, which is another plus in our books.
We are determined to get the red itchies out of the picture for good, but until then, we have our ammuntion ready...
(Which is awesome for us, because Huxley hates clothes & coats and mittens and hats...unless it's a Michael Jackson-esque hat...)
