Wondering whether anyone has experience of this. Both my DS s (9 and 7) have terrible eczema on their arms and legs in term time but it clears up completely over the long summer holiday. Is it the uniform - although I can't see any difference between materials used in that and their home clothes? So annoying and painful for them. Any thoughts would be very welcome.

Is it possibly because they are getting more sun on their skin during hols?

Maybe or a bit of sand? Just seems odd it clears up so completely. They are getting a bit big to cover in cream!

Maybe their classrooms are very warm? My dd's eczema flares up if she gets too hot and sweaty.
