Stress & Scratching

When dealing with eczema and its many symptoms, parents are often looking most intensely at the foods, products, and irritants in their children’s lives that may be causing the problem. This is great and it usually leads to some very interesting finds, but did you know that the state of your child’s mind can actually impact their eczema, too?
