The National Eczema Association in the United States has marked October as Eczema Awareness Month. I recall the panick I felt when my eldest daughter showed symptoms of mild eczema when she was a baby. We did not like the idea of putting steroid-based cream on her skin, and researched actively for alternative solutions. Thankfully, we found there are many other options. In our case, the California calendula cream did wonders. To all parents and adults who are dealing with eczema, I lend you my support and wish you well. Let us rally to raise awareness and share knowledge to fight eczema.
