Eczema & other Childhood Skin Issues

In Australia, it is estimated that 1 in 3, or 1 million Australian’s experience eczema. With many parents and caregivers often being given the wrong advice on the management of eczema, nurses are well-placed to provide education and support to families of the child with eczema.

Course Overview

In this webinar, we will be discussing common skin complaints in childhood with a focus on holistic approaches in eczema care. This will include the use of wet dressings, bleach baths, best products and a family centred approach to eczema management.

Later in the webinar, we will review Impetigo and molluscum contagiosum to help you gain a better understanding of what advice to give to families in your care.
