Taking care of the stress levels is taking care of the skin!💡 - Scrachee

We know that different external factors such as food and environmental particles can generate eczema outbreaks, however, there is a very important factor that comes from the inside, which is stress and that sometimes goes unnoticed🤔

For this reason, it is important to keep in mind the close relationship between atopic dermatitis and stress, as well as to identify stress in order to take preventive actions and help reduce outbreaks✍

Learn about the relationship between atopic dermatitis and stress

In many occasions, physical problems are not usually related to emotional ones and this is a mistake, since the presence of stress can generate different negative physical changes to our body, including diseases😣.

When the body is subjected to chronic stress, an inflammatory response is generated, which in atopic people can take the form of outbreaks that are very annoying and difficult to manage.

On the other hand, this is a problem that can be present in all ages and not only in adults as we tend to believe. Children and adolescents also get stressed, so it is important to recognize early all those symptoms or manifestations of stress that may be affecting the little ones of the family👨‍👨‍👧‍👧

Learn to identify stress in your little one

In all those situations where the child requires new changes or adaptation, he/she will surely go through a moment of stress and it is necessary to pay attention to it.

It is important to know that stress can be caused by positive changes (starting a new activity: recreational or school) as well as by negative changes such as the presence of an illness. This is why children with atopic dermatitis are even more prone to stress😔.

Children do not realize that they are stressed!

Since it is very difficult for children to express or acknowledge that they are feeling stressed, it is important to pay attention to physical signs or symptoms that alert you to a possible stressful situation👇:

Abrupt changes in the alimentary habit together with evident diminution of the appetite.
Beginning of night terrors given by the presence of nightmares.
Insomnia both to initiate and maintain sleep.
Constant stomach pains.
Headaches.
Sudden changes of mood.

    Taking action is essential!

    To be able to identify early the stress symptoms in your little one is the most important thing, after this it is very important to take measures to help him and give them all our support🙏. Some measures you can take are:

    Ensure a safe and secure environment for your little one.
    Try, as much as possible, to maintain a routine as this gives structure to their day to day life.
    Keep your child informed in advance of possible changes, whether it's a move or a change at work, they understand!
    Spend time with your child and do activities together. Parents are the main emotional support.
    Listen to your child carefully. Always give them the confidence that they can come to you no matter what.
