    Has eczema improved for your child overtime? If so, at what age and how ? My child is 4 years old and eczema is still consuming our time.

    My sister had eczema as a child but now (she is 15 years old) she doesn't. It is still there but it is hardly noticeable, hell of a lot minor than it was, so yes it does improve as the child gets older.

    I've had eczema all my life and it has only improved my moving away from the family home for uni. I rarely go back now because it causes my life to be hell due to my eczema flare ups. I'm 22 now. It doesn't improve that much for everyone-I literally have it all over my body still, even my face

    It probably depends on the person.

    It really does-I just wanted to let OP know that it's not guaranteed to improve though, as a lot of people seem to think it does.

    OP, here's some advice for minimising the suffering your child endures due to eczema from my own experience

    -Use non bio laundry detergent
    -Don't let your child wear any woollen clothing
    -Use sanex, oilatum and baby oil when you bathe them
    -If you live in an area with hard water, install a water softener-the minerals in hard water can cause serious flare ups
    -E45 is a good moisturiser and can be bought over the counter
    -Ban all animals from your house
    -Feed them a low sugar, high oil diet
