Practical solutions to paediatric eczema care

Eczema, a prevalent chronic skin condition in children, demands careful and informed management to reduce flare-ups and maintain skin health. A significant part of patient care involves clarifying misconceptions about eczema treatments, particularly the use of topical corticosteroids. Having up-to-date knowledge to alleviate patient & parental concerns supports a patient centred approach to eczema management.

Join our expert presenters on this webinar dispelling the myths of eczema care. Using a case based approach, this session will break down the new eczema management plan to demonstrate the practical aspects of care including application of creams, adjuvant therapies of wet dressings and bleach baths.  

This session will provide you with the latest evidence on eczema management addressing common questions and concerns around food allergies and eczema. To support your knowledge and equip you with the right information to provide patient care and education, we will debunk  the myths around the use of topical corticosteroids and provide you with resources to support patient education.

Join the session live to apply your knowledge with the interactive polls and Q&A session, or enrol and watch the webinar on demand at a time that suits you.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session, you will be able to:

  • Explain the therapeutic effects of moisturisers and topical corticosteroids and how to apply them to patients/parents/caregivers
