A man on moisturiser

A man on moisturiser

The lovely @EczemaSupport asked me the following on Twitter: "what do you think about emollients - do they help the #eczema? What would life be like without them?"

There is the obvious reward for a parent seeing their children have a great time (and even the not-so-great times, like when The Boy got off the rollercoaster.  "Too fast, too high, too scary"), but it also presents me with things I don't see every day - like Eagles, Pandas, trains in fancy dress and people.
