Hi! I’m Dr. Jamison Starbuck, a naturopathic family physician. I’m here today with health tips for kids about: eczema.
Eczema is a pretty funny word, isn’t it? It’s spelled E-C-Z-E-M-A. It comes from a Greek word that means ‘something thrown out by heat’. If you have eczema, you’ll know why. Eczema is a red, dry, itchy, scaly skin rash and when it’s really bad, it feels like your skin is being boiled from the inside out.
