Have you guys heard about this? My kids have rushes and most of the people told me that it is skin asthma. I have consulted with a doctor and they recommended a cream but still their rashes continue. My hubby already wants to consult a dermatologist.
Any suggestion is very much appreciated.
I had honestly never heard of skin asthma before so I went and looked it up. It would seem that it is simply another term for atopic dermatitis, and as such is the same as many other skin conditions that respond badly to stress and often allergenic substances.
The only way to ease it would be avoiding those things.
I did a web search as well, as I had never heard of this. The common thing seems to be moisturize and use gentle detergents. Using high quality lotions such as Aquaphor, Cetaphil, Nutraderm, and Jergen's ultra healing is recommended. I also saw mention that coconut oil was helpful to some people, but with the obvious issue of smelling like a tropical island. They make lots of good gentle detergents free of dyes and perfumes these days though so that should be much easier than it could have been even ten years ago. The big issue seems to be dealing with the skin cracking and germs getting in the cracks. However there seems to be some chance they can grow out of it just like lung asthma, but seeing a derm might be helpful to determine if it really is skin asthma or not.
