Eczema is the most common skin problem treated by pediatric dermatologists
Rhinebeck, NY (PRWEB) October 20, 2014
Topical BioMedics, Inc., announces its new program to help relieve the discomfort and pain of children who suffer with eczema by sending their parents a free tube of their proprietary topical product, Topricin Junior for Children. Formulated especially for a child's sensitive kin, Topricin Junior is a natural way to help the body heal the skin as it helps relieve itching, redness, pain, and discomfort.
The statistics are staggering. According to the National Eczema Association, there are 31.6 million people in the United States who suffer with eczema—and many of them are children.
Eczema is the most common skin problem treated by pediatric dermatologists. About 65% of their young patients develop symptoms before age one, and about 90% of them before age five. Adolescents and adults can also develop this condition, and individuals who had eczema as a child may experience reoccurrences later in life.
A non-contagious inflammatory skin condition, the term eczema is derived from Greek, meaning "to boil out." The name is appropriate since to ancient medical practitioners the skin may have appeared to be "boiling."
Eczema can appear anywhere on the body or in just a few areas. Common symptoms include dry, red, itchy skin, bumps, and rashes, which can be oozing or very dry. In babies, a rash often appears on the face and scalp, but the symptoms of eczema vary from child to child, and rashes can be found on the back of the knees, bend in the elbows, trunk, wrists, hands, feet, and other parts of the body.
No matter which part of the skin is affected, eczema is usually itchy. But scratching can make the rash worse, and may eventually lead to thickened, brownish areas on the skin and/or cause an infection.
The National Eczema Association has given voice to the children who are afflicted with eczema, and the things they say can break your heart. Things like: “I feel uncomfortable in the skin I’m in.” “Eczema makes me feel left out and sad.” “Eczema is hard to live with.” “It hurts when people stare.” And, the simple, poignant statement “I feel bad.”
Unfortunately, the primary reason that most people remain suffering with eczema is because there is an incomplete understanding of the disease and what causes it. In addition, many of the Rx medicines for eczema and other skin issues have side effects, some of which are severe.
A child’s skin is more sensitive to pain than an adult’s skin, and they feel pain more intensely,” says Lou Paradise, president and chief of research, Topical BioMedics. “They are little people—not little adults—and adult medications may not be appropriate for them. Children need gentler, safer, effective treatments. Understanding and treating the cause of eczema, not just symptoms, is key.”
Topricin Junior for Children is made especially for children’s delicate skin, and is free of parabens, petroleum, and other harsh chemicals. Formulated with a combination of gentle yet effective natural biomedicines, it is historically ideal in treating pain and skin issues. Topricin Junior offers a safe, natural way to help the body heal the skin as it relieves itching, redness, pain, and discomfort.
A winner of the Parent Tested/Parent Approved Seal of Approval, Topricin Junior brings soothing relief and provides rapid healing for the pain and discomfort of symptoms associated with eczema ; rosacea; dry, cracked skin; sun and wind burn; bug bites; and minor burns.
“As a parent and grandparent, I know there is nothing worse than seeing your little one suffering in pain and discomfort,” says Paradise. “That’s why I am honored to offer a free tube of Topricin Junior to parents whose children are afflicted with eczema.”
Parents can receive Topricin Junior at no charge (just $1.00 for shipping and handling) by calling 800-959-1007 or visiting http://www.topricin.com. Offer good while supplies last.
