Sarasota Kid’s Health: Guard Against Chapped Skin
When it comes to your Sarasota child’s health, you might first think of their diet. While putting vitamins and minerals inside
your child’s body is important, you also need to pay attention to what is going on on the outside
. I’m talking about your child’s skin
The skin is our body’s largest organ and when skin’s smoothness is disrupted, small cracks and openings can create an entryway for bacteria and germs.
Active Sarasota kids don’t often think of the condition of their skin until it starts hurting. Playing outside in hot, cold, or dry weather can lead to small cracks around knuckles or nails. This painful condition is called dermatitis
, or extreme dryness
. Temperature extremes in Sarasota make it harder to keep skin moist and healthy – dry, chapped and cracked skin
is common in summer and winter.
Many kids lick their lips until they turn red or bleed. Reminding your child to drink plenty of water
can prevent over-dryness. Using a humidifier
during the night in your child’s bedroom can also help.
Make sure you leave moisturizing lip balm in handy locations: by their bed, the front door and in the car so reapplying it becomes habit. Remind them to slick some over their cuticles as well, to prevent cracking.
Tampa dermatologists suggest a using a daily skin moisturizer that contains shea butter
to draw moisture into the skin and keep it in place.
Encourage Tampa kids to use waterproof gloves
when playing outside in the cold. Lightweight gloves with grips added to the palms are great for playing ball and riding bikes. In addition to protecting skin from dryness, they keep small hands from slipping. You can pick these up at Florida sporting good stores or Tampa big box stores.
Using a non-drying sanitizer
is another way to prevent bacteria from entering through the skin. Look for brands that are alcohol-free to prevent excessive dryness.
