When it comes to luxury hotels no one does it like the One&Only resorts located in the most exotic spots around the world. The One&Only Reethi Rah in Maldives is no exception and features a seductive landscape and interior design that lets you know you are on vacation! I had the pleasure of staying at the Pamilla in Cabo San Lucas Mexico and can personally attest to the special feeling you get from the moment you wake until you shut your eyes at night. Here are some of the glamorous shots from in and around the One&Only Reethi Rah,
If dry, cracked, and generally irritated skin has adults in pain periodically due to an allergic reaction, stress, or weather, imagine the pain children and infants who have developed eczema go through. There have been supposed “miracle cures” for decades hoping to be the end to eczema but without expensive and dangerous prescription drugs; people searching a more natural approach have been silently suffering.
As a form of dermatitis (inflammation of the epidermis/skin), eczema is a broad term for a whole range of various skin conditions. The common denominator in all of these problems is that they are all consistent in the patient with symptoms like edema/swelling, dryness, itching, crusting, oozing, and blistering. Infantile eczema, for example, is a common case called atopic eczema which is a skin disease revolving around allergens. Believed to be hereditary, infantile eczema is often transmitted to babies through families who have a history of asthma and hay fever. Usually associated with red blotchy rashes on sensitive areas such as the head, neck, bottom, and inside the joints like between the fingers, under the knees, and inside the elbows, eczema can occur anywhere on the skin.
While searching for natural, healthy, and alternative soothers for childhood (or infantile) eczema, there are several different products that claim to be better than the scores of lotions, gels, creams, oatmeal baths, and powders aimed at “severely dry skin,” and are supposedly great for kids because of their highly sensitive skin. Because there is temptation to scratch an itch, it is important for parents to be able to control eczema, not only to prevent it from worsening in the present but also to ward off unsightly scars on their child’s skin.
