From the Back Cover

'Sometimes I think I can't bear it, I can't do it, but I do because I have no choice. Who else is going to do it?'

Although eczema is a common childhood complaint, it can be an emotional, painful and frustrating condition to cope with for the family, as well as the child. Understanding Childhood Eczema tackles these difficulties with sympathy and understanding, showing you how to deal with tantrums, sleep problems, scratching, teasing, and lots more.

Packed full of practical advice for choosing and managing different treatments, Penny Titman also talks about how having a child with eczema can affect other family members. Am I spoiling my child because of the eczema? What about the other children? Am I neglecting my partner or myself?

Lots of people will offer you advice when your child has eczema. Understanding Childhood Eczema will help you decide what is best for your child, your family and you.

Format: Paperback
The author has a chapter called "What is the best treatment for eczema", you would think you will learn some very good tips to deal with it (or that is at least what I was expecting), but you don't ,she refers to the different general treatments, but doesn't tell you exactly what you could use, i.e. other books that I have read, tell you specifically to look for lotions that have colloidal oatmeal, this chapter is too general. I was expecting to find more specific advise.

This is an excellent resouce for parents of children with eczema. It not only talks about how eczema develops and the most common allergens, but also covers eczema management very extensively: e.g. itch and sleep management, day-to-day routine, and how to prepare the child for social pressure when they start going to school, etc.

Format: Paperback
Perhaps this book was written for someone who never read anything about eczema. However, for any parent who conducted even minimum research this book will tell nothing new. Great cover design, promising title, waste of money.

Format: Paperback
Ernest Henri Besnier (1831-1909), French dermatologist, gave the name to the condition Prurigo Besnier or atopic dermatitis. Besnier became médecin des hôpitaux in 1863 and subsequently held positions at several Paris hospitals. In 1873 he succeeded Bazin as dermatologist at the Hôpital St. Louis, where he became director the same year. In 1881 he was elected member of the Academy of Medicine as hygienist due to his contributions to epidemiology. In his special field, dermatology, Besnier tried to balance the differences between the French school and the Vienna school. With Pierre Adolphe Adrien Doyon (1827-1907) he founded the journal Annales de dermatologie et de syphiligraphie. He built histopathology and parasitology laboratories at the St. Louis hospital, and we owe to him the term and technique of biopsy. He is not mentioned in this book.
Atopic dermatitis (atopic means alien, dermatitis means inflamed skin) or atopic eczema (eczema is Greek for to boil out) shows an inherited tendency to develop one or more of different types of conditions, like asthma, eczema of atopic type, allergic rhinitis or acute urticaria of allergic type. It is a major problem with more than 10% of the population suffering. Many children and their families will suffer and the condition create distress. Atopic dermatitis primarily is caused by cellular immune deficiency and elevated immunoglobulin E (IgE). The pathogenesis can be traced to a genetically inherited, bone marrow-derived cell associated with chromosome 11q. Abnormal skin reactivity also plays a major role in the development of the disease. Irritants to the skin are believed to predispose an individual to develop dermatitis more often than simply exposure to an allergenic trigger.
