Meet Mr Happy & Mr Bump...

Mr Happy and Mr Bump spend most of their time living inside our fridge.

They share a little house together in a little plastic bag, and are usually found sitting on the second bottom shelf, beside the margarine.

Mr Happy and Mr Bump have an important job to do in our house.

You see, when the itchy bug takes over one of the eczema boys, especially the littlest man, they come to the rescue.

Once the raging heat and itch has kicked in, and no amount of distraction is working, or the offer of mama rubbing instead of little man scratching & tearing away has been turned down then we call on Mr Happy and Mr Bump.

Their coolness is just what is needed and it usually doesn't take long for them to work their magic.

Recently Alasdair has even started asking for them, as he seems to be becoming more aware that he should try not to scratch.

Just simple bruise soothers but one way we have found of helping to cope with one of the hardest parts of living with eczema - the unbearable itch!


  1. What a smart boy and soooo precious. This is a great idea and I can't wait to try it on Winston's sensitive itchy skin. Did I tell you how he has been dealing with some food allergies as well and has little red itchy rashes on his ankles, inside elbows, inside knees? I have often thought of you and all that you and your boys have had to endure and my heart breaks. I am excited though, I have started Winston on a natural enzyme, which helps naturally with dairy, gluten and other food allergies. I'll let you know if it helps him. :)

  2. Sorry to hear Winston is suffering now too, but you must keep me posted on your discoveries of what helps him!


I love reading everyone's comments, so thank-you for taking the time to leave them! I try and respond to them here too, so do check back later on.
