not means tested at all. its to do with how much care your child needs during the day and night. as a child with moderate/severe eczerma needs help at night (changing blood soaked sheets, applying creams/adjusting wet wraps or as in my dd's cases cool baths as the itch wont go away) u can claim DLA (disability living allowence).

if you get middle or high rate care awarded then ucan also try claiming carers allowence.

my dd's each get over £200 a month.

Hi, Misdee, I know we have chatted about this before, but Dd2's eczema has flared up again and I am spending a lot of time creaming her up, and bathing her. I am lucky that she sleep through even through her eczema is bad atm, but should I claim for her. I haven't claimed for her as I already have two on DLA for cerebral palsy as you know ) and I think that I shouldn't IYKWIM. She has an appointment with the skin nurse on the 21st to disuss her ezcema and allergies as the allergies are coming more frequent.

i would mieow. she does take a lot of your morning/evening routine up with treatment.

I know and on top of the other twos rountines, I feel like I am on the go all day.

and hers the phone number for other people to claim (you already have it) 08457 123456

it really helps towards the cost of private treatment and special clothing you may buy.
