Like Chesca Garcia-Kramer's Daughter, Scarlett, Your Child Can Also Have Sweet Dreams with Elica Cream



Adults find it hard to deal with itchy skin, what more when babies and small children have that discomfort? Moreso, the itch feels different with simple insect bites compared to skin conditions where the itch remains for a longer time. No wonder those with eczema find it hard to sleep at night!

Eczema is characterized by red, dry, and itchy rashes on the skin. It is more common in children than in adults. It can also negatively affect a child's life as a result of the inability to sleep because of the itching. 

This is what celebrity mom Chesca Garcia-Kramer experienced with her daughter Scarlett who used to cry at night due to itchy rashes. Their pediatrician then recommended mometasone furoate or Elica for the little girl. Within 24 hours, the topical steroid from Bayer Philippines gave positive results and both mother and daughter finally got to sleep better at night.

Chesca and Scarlett shared their story during the recent "Sweet Dreams with mometasone furoate (Elica)" launch at Ascott, Bonifacio Global City. During the event, Dr. Lyra Yamat, Bayer HealthCare Philippines Medical Consultant, explained that eczema flare-ups can be triggered by several factors such as dust mites, family pets, heat, or harsh soaps. "These triggers should be controlled in order to avoid the symptoms of eczema," she advised.

Although moisturizers may help, flare-ups require a faster and more powerful treatment. Elica, a tropical steroid, is considered the first line of defense against eczema. With just one application a day, Elica can help relieve symptoms with visible results in 24 hours.

"Eczema should be treated immediately, because it can affect a child's self-esteem, social activities and, of course, sleep," added Dr. Yamat. Aside from clinical studies that have shown the efficacy and safety of Elica, this medication has also been recommended and prescribed by doctors for many years. 

I, personally, can attest to that because Elica has also been prescribed by our pediatrician, Dr. Bella Vitangcol, to my firstborn son around 20 years ago when he was still a baby and had rashes on his cheek. I really believe in the product and have also used Elica on my three other sons' rashes when they were young. It is safe and effective for treating the "itchies" of little kids.
