Living with eczema is not fun as an adult – the dryness, rash, redness, and itchiness is enough to make a person miserable. What about when this condition touches a child who does not understand why their skin hurts and why they should not scratch? Eczema affects 15-20% of children under the age 2. The causes of eczema are not known. However it is thought to be related to an overactive response of the body’s immune system. Treatment for eczema involves topical treatment including keeping the skin moisturized. La Roche-Posay specializes in products for people with sensitive skin.
La Roche-Posay works to support families dealing with children suffering from eczema through their 100 families program. Through this program they provide eczema education and Lipikar products designed for dry eczema-prone skin. La Roche-Posay wants to celebrate Itch-Free Days this spring and is hosting a contest! You have a chance to win a $300 Prize Pack and having your child’s drawing featured on limited-edition bottle of Lipikar Baume AP! Entering the contest takes 3 easy steps!
La Roche-Posay Facebook fans will vote for their favorite drawing and a jury will then select the winning drawing among the top 10. The artist will win a selection of La Roche-Posay products and will see his or her drawing on a limited edition Lipikar Baume AP container, released in October 2013. The deadline to enter this contest is March 31, 2013 so make sure you get those entries in! You can find full contest details here.
