I first noticed a change in my son’s skin at about 5 years of age when he contacted poison oak. He had the typical reaction but it never really went away. He since has had bouts of eczema ranging from mild to severe. We as a family have tried very hard to find cures and treatments and over time have a handle on the problem. Now he is 18 years old and the eczema has taken a back seat to the rest of his life. He still has eczema but now knows how to make it only a nuisance. My advice to all sufferers is never quit trying, try all solutions, and leave no stone unturned.
