As a mother and as a community pharmacist for 16 years, I've always tried to give my best to my four boys and my customers. When my young son developed severe eczema, naturally, I wanted to help him find a way to heal it. I tried everything - emollients, moisturisers, topical steroids, wet and dry dressings, sedating anti-histamines and natural creams. But none of it worked. Most would sting and they would all end up unused in the bathroom drawer. They were difficult years of attempting to manage broken skin, relentless itch, staph infections, and the sleepless nights was stressful for both mum and son.
