Medical practitioner Dr Anusha Nair's passion for unearthing natural remedies for common skin treatments like atopic dermatitis, psoriasis and eczema eventually led her to start her own natural skincare line, Noosh Naturals in 2018. As a mother herself with a young son who suffered from eczema, Dr Anusha offers this advice to parents with children who frequently experience skin irritations and allergies.
Get a proper diagnosis
"Firstly, getting a diagnosis from your GP or your dermatologist is vital," Dr Anusha says. "If the skin irritations get bad, visiting an allergist or an immunologist can help identify what triggers are causing these problems."
Once you're certain that your child does not suffer from an acute skin condition, says Dr Anusha, there are certain steps you can take to identify the "triggers" to your child's immune system, which will help in the long run.
