Sweet Dreams with Elica

As a mom, I know how it feels when my kids have difficulty sleeping, whether it is due to a stuffy nose or eczema.  With eczema in particular, kids get so uncomfortable and irritable with the persistent itching.

Just recently, I attended a brunch at Alta, Margarita Fores’ new restaurant at Ascott BGC, to learn more about how to treat eczema with Elica.

Eczema commonly occurs in persons with a personal and/or family history of atopic dermatitis, asthma, or allergic rhinitis.  The most common type of eczema is atopic dermatitis.  You can take this quiz to find out if you or your kids are suffering from Eczema.

Elica also introduced their newest brand ambassadors, Chesca and Scarlett Kramer.  Chesca shared how Scarlett has the most sensitive skin among all her kids, and suffers from atopic dermatitis.  It was so bad that she had a hard time sleeping, and was always scratching her neck, elbow folds, and other body parts.  Chesca then took Scarlett to a pedia dermatologist who prescribed Elica, and they’ve been using it for Scarlett’s eczema attacks ever since.

Now that Scarlett’s eczema is under control, she can sleep soundly and have sweet dreams with Elica.
