Q.

itchy all night long

Hi

My neice is almost 2 yrs old. She had eczema when she was little and it has cleared up.

Her skin is moisturized daily too. the problem is that her skin itches all night long in her sleep. What could be wrong??

Eczema causes very severe itching especially at night and especially when the weather is hot. The moisturiser may be irritating her skin as well. She must not have a hot bath. The water must be lukewarm at the most. Use Epimax after bathing her as a moisturiser.
