Works For Me Wednesday, Eczema
Sometimes it really is the simplest things in life that give us the most pleasure. It can also be the loss of the simplest things which seem to cause the most pain. My son, for example, has eczema. Now, tons of people suffer from eczema and have it a lot worse than he does. He gets little bumpy patches on his elbows and knees and occasionally itchy red spots between his toes. Oh you should see the look on his face when he lays back with his feet in my lap and I gently rub lotion between his little toes. Such pure and unadulterated relief I have never seen.

For those of you who have experience with eczema, you probably know that one of the first recommendations you receive is to limit baths and eliminate bubble baths. Ouch! Because bubble baths happen to be one of my son's mostest favoritest things in his day.

You look into those bright brown eyes and tell him to take a shower. That just takes all the fun out of it for this touch oriented young man who has enough issues to worry about without losing bath time.

Luckily, his eczema is mild, else this might not work. But it does work for us:

It lathers up into nice, soft little bubbles which satisfy his desire for snuggly bubbles, Santa beards and fluffy mountains. And it doesn't aggravate his eczema.
