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.

The survey, which was conducted with a nationally representative sample of parents in Ireland, also revealed that:

  • Bedtime is the most prevalent time for skin conditions to flare up (36%), followed by morning (28%), warm weather (26%) and bathtime (10%).
  • 13% of parents say they have cancelled activities due to their child’s skin condition, 11% have had to keep their children off school, 8% of parents have taken time off work and 4% have even had to cancel holidays
