Our 8-year-old daughter Angelina has chronic, severe eczema. We have four children: Sabrina is 13, Samantha is 11, Angelina is 8, and Jonathan is 6. Sabrina and Samantha both have asthma. Somehow our son has escaped all illnesses so far.
Angelina first started showing signs of atopic dermatitis when she was a year and a half old. It began as just a small spot on the front of her ankle. We went to the doctor and were told it was a mild case of eczema. No problem, nothing to worry about. Just apply some ointment to the area two times a day, and voila . . . she would be cured!
