Geezz... Eczema! You know life is never easy dealing with eczema. What exactly is eczema? Eczema is inflammation and irritated skin conditions that often result in dryness, itchiness and discomfort. Eczema affects infants, children as well as adults. You'll experience itching and rash commonly appears on the face, back of knees, wrists, hands or feet. In infants, the itchy rash will produce an oozing, crusting condition that happens mainly on the face and scalp with patches appears anywhere.
I've had on and off contact dermatitis, skin condition. Few years ago, my condition is so bad at times, I find myself visiting doctor for injection just for an instant relief. Mine most regretted decision ever. Never ever find a quick solution, as it's often linked to steroid. Yeah.. it's pretty much heal faster, but it's also promoting the eczema to flare more. If you are still using topical steroid creams, ointments and lotions which contain a steroid medicine, please throw it all away. Some of the common side effects of steroid cream include skin redness/burning/itching/peeling, thinning of your skin, blistering skin, stretch marks, nausea, heartburn etc.

This year, the Persatuan Dermatologi Malaysia along with the Malaysian Paediatric Association, supported by Menarini have produced a very helpful guidebook entitled ‘My Eczema Action Plan: Your Step-by-Step Guide to Managing Eczema’. This beautifully illustrated and informative book is dedicated to these young patients suffering from eczema.
By using two main cartoon characters, young children will learn how to manage their own skin condition. The first cute cartoon boy is named Nezam and the second is a pretty cartoon girl by the name of Claire. Young patients aged five and below would identify well with these cartoons.
My Eczema Action Plan Guidebook, or MyEAP Guidebook, is written in easy-to-understand English. As the parents or older family members read to the young patients, both the adults and children will learn how to effectively manage eczema.
The book is organised by topics and this makes it easy for young children to learn and remember each important aspect of eczema care.
Eczema is a chronic skin condition with frequent flares if not controlled appropriately. Understanding the skin condition will help the child and their parents to manage the condition well thus reducing the number of flares. Only by constant monitoring and proactive cooperation with the doctors and nurses, that this skin condition can be kept under control.
To help a child learn how to manage eczema, a ‘traffic light’ system is being introduced;
green, yellow and red zone.
green, yellow and red zone.
- In the green zone, your skin looks healthy and there’s only mild irritation.
- When you are in the yellow zone, the skin shows flare-ups or other symptoms and this is when you should apply your medication.
- The red zone is when the symptoms of eczema are wide spread and the skin becomes inflamed or infected, then you have to see your doctor immediately.
