Vacations are supposed to be about having fun in the sun, but this can be a bit tricky for those with children who have eczema. The chlorine in swimming pools can leave skin dry and prone to eczema flare-ups. Luckily, you can take steps to minimize the risk of skin irritation.
One of the best things to do to prevent an eczema flare-up after swimming is to keep skin moisturized. After your child is done swimming, have them take a shower (with lukewarm water). This will help to get rid of chlorine that could be lingering on their skin. Then, apply a gentle moisturizer (we recommend LEMYKA's Natural Hydrating Cream) liberally to their skin to replenish the moisture in their skin. Applying a moisturizer can help you and your child to spend less time worrying about eczema and more time enjoying your vacation!
