Treatment Goals

Treatment goals for eczema

Your child’s pediatrician will review the treatment goals for their specific eczema-prone skin, but they often include:

  • Reducing the frequency and number of flares
  • Relieving symptoms (redness, dryness, itching, irritation)
  • Identifying and managing triggers
  • Using products that are pH-optimized to skin
  • Improving hydration and maintaining moisture of the skin

Questions for the pediatrician

  • My child is still having flares. What can we do to reduce them?
  • What can help their itching/irritation?
  • What moisturizer should they use to treat their dry skin?
  • How can I identify and help eliminate or reduce their triggers?
  • Can you help me understand why skin pH is important for people with eczema?


Skin pH and its impact on eczema-prone skin

Skin of eczema patients has a higher pH (is less acidic) than healthy skin.
The pH range for healthy skin is slightly acidic:

An acidic skin pH can help your child's skin support a healthy skin moisture barrier and resist the growth of harmful bacteria.

Healthy Habits

Healthy habits to pHortify your eczema-prone skin

Changing your bathing routine can help lower your skin’s pH

  • Typical bar soap can have a pH of 9-10. Washing with alkaline bar soap can raise the pH of skin, lasting for more than an hour

Things to do:

Limit bath time to 5-10 minutes using warm (not hot) water at least once a day

Use products formulated for sensitive skin (low pH, no fragrances, no dyes)

Moisturize every day to help keep developing, eczema-prone skin hydrated and healthy-looking

Identify your child’s triggers: allergens, climate, external irritants, scratching, or a genetic predisposition.

Exposing your child to secondhand smoke

Don’t exacerbate your child’s eczema. Reduce their opportunity to scratch by trimming their nails or having them sleep in cotton gloves.

The skin's surface has a protective layer called the acid mantle

This protective barrier:

  • Helps the skin maintain its moisture
  • Acts as a barrier to harmful bacteria and other elements that may penetrate the skin

Eczema-prone skin has a damaged skin barrier that can flare and result in a red, scaly, itchy rash

A damaged protective acid mantle can allow harmful bacteria and other elements to enter the damaged skin. It is more difficult to keep the skin moisturized.
