It was February 2012 when I found out that my little kiddo has skin asthma. I was really saddened when her pedia informed me about her condition. This is actually new to me and I didn’t knew this type of illness exists.
So what is it all about? Skin asthma is more commonly known as eczema or Atopic dermatitis. It is a skin condition that has allergic features. It is non-contagious and characterized by chronic inflammation of the skin. The skin appears red, flaky, scaly inflamed patches, and this can be very itchy. This condition can also appear as cracked skin or as small white bumps. In worst cases, scaling and thickening of the skin is common.
One of the primary locations that skin asthma appears is around the body’s joints. Elbows, knees and knuckles are typical places for flareups. Skin asthma also tends to crop up symmetrically; if there is an itchy patch on the inside of your right elbow, it’s likely there is also one on your left elbow, too. Other places that skin asthma can show up is the scalp, around the eyes, mouth, hands, feet and body trunk.
Few weeks ago, Hello Baby Direct sent me a lovely Jellycat Bashful Bunny to review. I was very happy about it! The first time I gave it to my little princess, Kimy, she told me it really is the softest bunny she have ever felt! She was very delighted to see and feel it’s incredibly soft fur.
Since I have an asthmatic child, I am very choosy when it comes to her toys. My little kiddo just love collecting stuffed toys but I am very strict about it because these furry toys can actually trigger her asthma.
Good thing, this Jellycat Bashful Bunny, a gorgeously soft & cuddly rabbit, is made of ultra soft, non-allergenic materials. Its fur doesn’t easily pulled-off. It is indeed suitable for little ones who suffers from asthma.
When you become a mom, you tend to forget yourself but never your child. You try to make them feel secure and protect them from all kinds of harm. And of course, their health is our primary concern.
However, I am also a busy mom so sometimes I tend to forget. Thankfully, through my perseverance I won an iPad2 in an online contest. Through that, I learned about the app called My Kid’s Health. And I am so thankful.
You see, through this app, I could easily keep track of the progress of my child’s height and weight. I also realized that I have skipped some immunizations that are very important for my daughter Kimy. It also alerts me whenever we have a doctor’s or a dental appointment. It is just so cool to have it because it is both fun and useful. It is just perfect for forgetful moms like me.
