Q.

Eczema

Hi there

My son has really bad eczema on his whole body, so bad that he has scratched his skin broken. Do I take him to a paediatrician or to a dermatologist? He is 3 years old.

Paediatrician

Try to take your son to a paediatrician with an interest in paediatric allergy. There are experts in all the main cities in SA.
