As strange as it may seem, many costumes are made from materials that may add itching, scratching, and other irritations to your child’s Halloween experience. Make sure to check the materials used in your child’s costume before buying, and watch those with sensitive skin to make sure they stay comfortable. When in doubt, use long shirts and pants underneath the costume to prevent it from having direct contact with the skin.
