Eczema can be excruciatingly painful and itchy for kids. One mum who knows how debilitating it can be for children is Debbie Maddalena-Saunders. Her 6-year-old son Tyler was always in pain after breaking out in rashes. He started to get eczema when he was 8 months old and as he got older the rashes got worse. Debbie tried all sorts of creams to help Tyler, but they didn’t work.
The eczema was so bad Tyler couldn’t live properly. He couldn’t sleep, play or even go to school as he was often ridiculed because of the sores on his body.
Debbie started to film her son with his terrible rashes to show how severe they were and how they affected Tyler. The footage is heartbreaking to watch as a mum.
Debbie told Kidspot, “When we would go out shopping, people would stop us and ask, ‘What’s wrong with him?’ and suggest things he could try. I know they were only trying to help, but he was always reminded of it — kids would point.”
Debbie was determined to find a cure to help her son. When she saw a Facebook post from Dr Aron, the mother was skeptical, but willing to pay $35 to try anything that would help her son.
Amazingly the cream worked and Tyler was cured from his eczema. Since his recovery and cure, Tyler has been able to live life like a regular kid.
“He’s resilient beyond his years — there’s no doubt about it,” she says. “He’s so elated and really proud and he should be, because he has worked really hard for it.”
