Childhood eczema treatment: the barriers

Childhood eczema treatment: the barriers
Childhood eczema treatment: the barriers
Childhood eczema has a significant impact on the quality of life of children and their families, yet the main cause of treatment failure is parents/carers not using prescribed topical treatments. This article reports the results of a study that explored carers’ experiences of barriers to treatment adherence and how they sought to overcome these. We found that regular application of topical treatments can be highly challenging, particularly in families where child resistance develops. Our findings are considered alongside research into other long-term childhood conditions.

Abstract

Childhood eczema has a significant impact on the quality of life of children and their families, yet the main cause of treatment failure is parents/carers not using prescribed topical treatments. This article reports the results of a study that explored carers’ experiences of barriers to treatment adherence and how they sought to overcome these. We found that regular application of topical treatments can be highly challenging, particularly in families where child resistance develops. Our findings are considered alongside research into other long-term childhood conditions.
