Research reveals more than half of children in Ireland suffer from a skin condition.

A survey carried out by Aveeno Baby estimates that childhood skin conditions are causing sleepless nights for over 600,000 families in Ireland.

11% of children with skin conditions have taken days of school, and 8% of parents have had to take time off work due to a child’s skin condition.

Research from Aveeno Baby has revealed that more than half (52%) of parents in Ireland say their child suffers from a skin condition such as dry or irritated skin. The survey furthermore reveals the wide-ranging impacts of this, with 51% of parents reporting that their child experiences distress or upset because of their skin condition.

On average, parents are being woken twice a month due to a child’s skin condition, and more than a third (37%) of parents say the family has experienced tiredness due to dealing with their child’s skin condition during the night.

The range uses natural ingredients such as colloidal oatmeal and oat essence.

  • Bedtime is the most prevalent time for skin conditions to flare up (36%), followed by morning (28%), warm weather (26%) and bathtime (10%).
