Every year when the weather turns, thresholds to reacting drop along with declining temperatures and humidity.
The change can be hardest of all on people who have recently solved their child’s eczema or are in the process, because it can suddenly seem as if something else is causing eczema to resurge.
Especially for those whose children are age 3 or younger, it’s worth a re-read of my first post on Autumn Eczema.
Also, because kids with eczema often have more allergy issues, I’ve posted our family’s best cold and cough home remedy (which I’ve moved to its own page).
