View Full Version : Eczema and Teething
My little darling has had a bad flare up in her eczema :crying: .
Is it possible it could be associated with teething?
Has anyone else experienced this?
my ds gets red rosey cheeks when he is teething.
his eczema has just flared up again and he is sick with bronchitis :(
Normally I would say teething and eczema are not connected but Ozzy is teething and his eczema is chronic at the moment. So yes I dare say that teething and flare ups can be related!
My sons allergie specialist said that teething is a cause for an eczema flare up .
No wonder he constanly has it...Arrgg
I'd agree that teething can cause an eczema flare-up. :yes:
Although bub isn't directly "allergic" to teething, eczema seems to worsen when bub is run-down or unwell. Teething can cause bub to be unsettled, sleep poorly and become run-down. Also excess dribble on cheeks, chin and neck etc can irratate eczema.
So although its probably not "medically" related, in my experience with DS it certainly worsened during teething and/or illness.
My DS suffers eczema mainly due to food allergy and environmental intolerance. But he has just about grown-out of it, now that he's nearly three-years-old. We worked closely with his allergy specialist (paed) and "weaned" him onto the different things that caused it and he rarely has flare-ups now. *sigh of relief*
So :fingerscrossed: there's an end in sight for you too! :hugs:
:D ohhh i didnt know that. My son had a little eczema and it has gone away due to being bathed in Pintarsol every day. And he seems to be teething and I have noticed his skin drying out which is usually the start of his eczema. So it must be the teething
