Everything you need to know about atopic dermatitis

By Pisamonas 12 April 2018

Advices about atopic dermatitis

What is dermatitis?

Atopic dermatitis is a chronic and autoimmune disease characterised by dry skin, reddening in specific areas and strong itching. The intense itching causes children to vigorously scratch the affected areas, causing the appearance of scabs. This leads children, especially the youngest ones, to express their discomfort by crying.

In general, the areas which are most affected by this condition are the face, neck and the folds of the body: back of the knees, inside of the elbows, armpits, etc.

What are the causes?

As we were saying, atopic dermatitis is a disease which is not caused by any external factor, it is an autoimmune condition, so there is nothing you or your child can do to prevent it. There are situations which favour the appearance of outbreaks, but the body itself is ultimately “responsible” for the disease.

Remedies and treatments nowadays are aimed at alleviating the consequences of this complicated disease, but in no case do they target its causes.

When does it appear?

Most patients with this condition develop it in the first few following birth and in 90% of the cases diagnosed in Spain, it appears before the age of one.

Although, as we’ve said, this disease appears with no specific cause, it also disappears for no reason. And we’ve got good news: almost 50% of cases are cured before the end of the teenage years, so it is primarily considered a disease related to childhood.

How to prevent outbreaks?

As we’ve already mentioned, atopic dermatitis appears and disappears spontaneously. Your child can suffer two outbreaks in a week and then not suffer one in years. Many studies agree on various scenarios which help minimise the appearance of eczema:

1.  Keep a constant temperature at home; don’t keep your child too warm, sudden temperature changes and excessive sweating favour outbreaks. It is better to keep the house at a steady temperature of about 20ºC, both in winter and during the summer.

2.  Keep humidity under control. Excessive dryness and central heating with hot air noticeably worsen the condition. If your house has a very dry environment, you can use a humidifier or surround yourself with plants to increase the humidity in the air. Resort to natural remedies and avoid chemical ones, this will be more beneficial for your child.

3.  The sun is your ally: take your child out for walks in the sun (always using protection). The sun naturally dries eczemas, without the need for chemical products.

4.  The more natural the clothes your child uses, the better. Avoid synthetic fibres. The 100% cotton label is your best friend during his or her childhood, especially for underwear.

5.  Use hypoallergenic washing powder, ideally without perfume, and the smallest amount possible of fabric softener, if any at all.

6.  Convincing children not to scratch is difficult, but with a few tricks you can minimise the consequences: make sure their fingernails are always short, that they’re hands are clean, etc. This will help reduce the harm they can inflict on themselves.

How can I help my child?

Children with atopic dermatitis often feel exasperated, especially when they are very young and can’t explain what’s wrong with them. Be very patient with your child and help him or her by applying creams recommended by your dermatologist, a special emollient moisturiser and large doses of patience and affection.

Treatment

There are two different types of treatment, when your child has eczema and for those periods in between outbreaks.

During “downtime” it is important not to bathe your child every day to avoid excessively removing the layer of defence cells of the skin. When in the bath, use natural shower gels, with no parabens or perfumes, and using warm water. Most importantly, use the cream recommended by your paediatrician or dermatologist 2 or 3 times a day all over their body. There is a wide variety of creams available, but only experience and use will help you find the one that best suits your baby’s skin.

When eczema appears, the treatment you have to follow is the one prescribed by your dermatologist. The most important thing to do is to keep the body well moisturised and, depending on the outbreak and the medical criterion, the treatment may include the use of drugs such as antihistamines or corticosteroids which are applied locally to alleviate the symptoms. Always check with your doctor to find out what is best for your child.

Pisamonas brings you 4 Christmas Apps

By Pisamonas 26 December 2017

Pisamonas brings you Christmas Apps

Enjoy this Christmas with your children by creating your own Christmas traditions

Christmas is almost here and we all have more free time, especially our children. At Pisamonas we have made a list of 4 Apps that will help you enjoy Christmas with your family and create new Christmas traditions.

We have prepared this list of Apps to help you enjoy some family time and keep the little ones busy during the long evenings. In a few years’ time the memories you create will be remembered fondly by your children.

-          ElfYourself: This has become a classic and you have most certainly used it yourself before. It’s a very simple App, you just upload family pictures, you choose the music and you turn into dancing elves! You can choose your own music, the elf outfit and you can then share it by email or WhatsApp. The children will have lots of fun seeing their parents or grandparents dancing to the Christmas carols and you can all laugh together during the Christmas family gatherings.

-          Christmas Cards: As the name suggests this simple App helps you make Christmas cards that you can then share on different media, or print and send them by post as a traditional Christmas card. You can choose different designs with Christmas trees or the Nativity scene; choose the colours, the background or add greetings to your card. It’s a fun way to spend some family time together.

-          PNP (Portable North Pole): We love this App because it’s a direct link to the North Pole. Children will be able to talk to Santa; he’ll ask them questions about their behaviour, whether they sleep early, if they eat fruit, etc. A highly recommendable App especially for those children who are a little more difficult to control and who need to share with Santa their mischiefs before the 25th.

-           Countdown Star:  This App is for those who wish to start get into the Christmas spirit early on, the App is a countdown to Christmas. You can enjoy a snowy background, listen to Christmas carols or see Santa getting presents ready with the help of his magical elves. Day by day you can open each of the windows of this virtual advent calendar. It is perfect to get into the Christmas mood. The single drawback is that it’s only available in the App Store.

These are our recommendations, but don’t forget to use your imagination during this holiday season, it is often the most fun thing to do and what keeps children busy. You can do crafts with the different materials you have around the house, build a puppet or a kitchenette with the box the new microwave came in, or simply buy some paint and decorate your own porexpan balls as ornaments for the Christmas tree. Board games are a classic which come back every Christmas; don’t forget to look for those that suit your children’s age best.

During the holiday season don’t forget that the best legacy you can leave your children is the time you spend with them. As well as playing, creating and sending, don’t forget that old traditions can also help you enjoy some quality time with your children: going for the traditional hot chocolate with churros, seeing the Nativity scenes in the display windows, stay out late to see the Christmas lights, set up the Nativity scene or the Christmas tree at home, watch some classics on TV… etc. But above all, spend time together, since that is probably the best gift you can give your children this Christmas. That is something they’ll never forget!

This Christmas at Pisamonas we have the best outfits for your little ones

By Pisamonas 7 December 2017

 Christmas with pisamonas

You’ll find the best looks at Pisamonas

It’s Christmas time and we all have lots of commitments, and this is also true for our children: parties with friends, a day at the circus and lunch with the grandparents; we have to make sure they have a range of outfits ready so they can shine during this holiday season. And we mustn’t forget the footwear for the perfect outfit.

At Pisamonas, your go-to children’s shoe shop, we want to help you choose the best footwear for your children to make these busy days easier.

At Christmas time we all like to see children wearing velvet, whether in their shorts, skirts or dresses, and if the weather allows it, combined with Cóndor socks exposing the knees: a classic look reminiscent of our own childhood. If the outfit you have chosen is plain, try adding a casual and fun twist by choosing our polka dots and stripes socks, you can’t go wrong.

Red and green tartan is of course the typical print for the Christmas season and is perfect for dressing brothers and sisters alike. We love the look of boys with moccasins and Oxford booties or trying to combine one of their outfits with trainers and give their look a different touch. The girls wearing shirt-like dresses matching their brothers’ shirts… Perfect!

Christmas is for the kids, so let them create their own style; what about shorts with a shirt and tie? Perfect! Especially if combined with casual trainers. Elegant children that don’t give up comfort.

For the little princesses, nothing better than glitter on Mary Janes, boots or dresses. Who can resist to a little girl in a short dress and our Mary Janes with glitter stars?

This time of year is perfect for dressing siblings and cousins alike or matching with the same boat shoes or boots in different colours.  Let your imagination run wild and you’ll find the best outfits so they look their best at each event.

At the end of those long and tiring days of games and events, there’s nothing better than returning home and putting on one of our comfortable and warm slippers. Some designs are available up to size 41 in case you want to dress the same as your children.

You’ll probably spend lots of hours away from home this Christmas so we recommend your children wear comfortable shoes like the ones you’ll find in our website. Have a look at our website to find the shoes that suit your schedule. Remember that all our shoes are made in Spain. Buy and get your order delivered at your door in 24-72 hours. Don’t miss this opportunity!

Things you should know before buying shoes for your children

By Pisamonas 30 November 2017

 Pisamonas

At Pisamonas we help you choose the footwear that best suits your children’s feet

Surely you’ve had lots of doubts before buying shoes for your children: Should they always wear the same shoes? How much space should be left between their toes and the toe cap? Is it advisable to keep shoes for younger brothers to reuse? Today at Pisamonas, your go-to children’s shoe shop, we are going to help you resolve all your doubts. Pisamonas helps you with your kids’ footwear.

We want to give this issue the importance it deserves because choosing the wrong shoes during childhood can have life-long consequences. It is at this time that the lower limbs develop and so we must take care of our children’s feet by using the best children’s footwear.

During childhood the foot grows on average about 8 millimetres every 3 months. There are also growth spurts for each child, which means they change shoe size really fast. For this reason, our first advice is that before buying their shoes you make sure that they are between one and one and a half centimetres larger than their feet. In order to avoid any mistakes, and to avoid having to insert your fingers at the back of their shoes or pressing down on the toes, children’s podiatrists recommend you draw the contour of your child’s foot on a sheet of paper to then compare it to the sizes table of the design you want to buy and which you’ll find on the product’s page under the product description.

Children’s shoes should be flexible. You can check this by trying to fold the shoe holding it from the ends. It is not necessary for the toe and heel to touch, but the sole should allow for a certain amount of mobility that will adapt to the child’s steps. The materials used should be of good quality, holding the foot but not too rigid. As for the materials they are made with, at Pisamonas we recommend you always choose natural breathable materials, always making sure the shoe chosen is adequate for the time of year.

For the youngest ones who are just starting to walk, we recommend designs fastened with Velcro or laces and a reinforced counter to offer extra support to the ankles which will provide that extra stability to start walking. According to podiatrists’ current recommendations, the ankle should be free when children start walking, so we recommend our leather Mary Janes or our leather Oxford shoes  which are ideal to help them in the transition between crawling and walking.

Regarding the reuse of shoes by younger siblings, we strongly discourage you to do it. At first it might seem like this will save us money, but in the long run it could cost us dearly, especially regarding podiatric health. Each child develops his or her steps according to their weight, the way their foot is supported, the type of activity carried out and many other factors which modify the interior of the shoe according to its characteristics in order to adapt it to his or her steps. If we make our children wear shoes that belonged to someone else, we will be forcing him or her to walk in the same manner as the first owner of the shoes, which could lead to our child being forced to alter the position of his or her feet, which could result in short and medium term damage.

As general advice to everyone we must say that comfort should always be placed before fashion, although at Pisamonas you won’t have to choose between them, all our designs are comfortable and with impeccable finishing touches.

Something else to take into account when buying shoes is that your children should ideally have at least two pairs of shoes each season. If their feet get used to one shoe shape they can have problems when wearing a different pair.

They should always alternate between shoes and trainers while they are still young so that in the future they won’t suffer when wearing moccasins, bluchers or heels due to having worn only trainers during childhood.

When choosing footwear for your children, you must bear in mind that not all feet are the same, some are wide, others are narrow, some have toes sticking out, etc. In general, we recommend moccasin-type shoes for narrow feet; but if your daughter has a wider instep, then we recommend Mary Janes; this velvet design  is perfect because it is slightly wider than most other shoes.

Boots and trainers usually adapt to all types of feet, so bear this in mind when buying new shoes for your children.

Finally, we are going to give you a set of general tips that will help you better chose your children’s footwear:

 

  • Buy shoes or measure their feet at the end of the day, it’s when the feet are most dilated. If you do it at another time, the shoes could feel uncomfortable by the end of the day.
  • Always make sure they try on both shoes, one foot is always longer than the other and this way you’ll avoid any problems.
  • If their feet are especially wide look for special shapes. You’ll find many shoe shops that specialise in wider shoes or just look for designs with a special width.
  • We should all have at least two different pairs of shoes per season so that our feet “don’t get used to” a single design.
  • To prevent problems when walking, children should not reuse other children’s shoes, even if they haven’t been used much.
  • Always choose footwear made with natural materials, avoid plastic and other synthetic materials which are cheaper but which do not benefit our feet.
  • A shoe for each season, your instinct will tell you which footwear is best for each season.

 

Before ending this post we’d like to remind you that our feet hold our body weight every day and that many of the health problems affecting our feet start during childhood, ailments that can often be corrected by using the appropriate footwear, visiting the podiatrist or wearing special insoles.

You’ve probably noticed how in the past very few children wore insoles and now most of them do for one reason or another. This way we are preventing many problems in the future!

We hope these tips help you find the perfect shoe size and design for your children. As always, at Pisamonas deliveries and exchanges are free. See our size guide for each design to make it easier!

How to clean shoes this season’s most fashionable shoes

By Pisamonas 9 November 2017

boots 

Simple tips that´ll help you keep your kids´ footwear like new 

This season shiny is in, footwear with gems and glitter. At Pisamonas you can find a lot of styles following these trends. How easy it is to buy fashionable footwear, how difficult it is to keep it in perfect condition throughout the season we want to take this opportunity to give you some tips to make sure your footwear, especially shiny shoe styles, always look like the day you bought them.

To learn how to clean you and your kids' shoes, in the first place you need to know in what material they are made of. If you bought your shoes at our online shoe store, you just have to consult the product description tab, where you can view the manufacturing details of the uppers, the lining and soles. If you bought your footwear at another store or it is an older style you can look inside the shoe where you find a tab with details of the materials used. This tab sometimes comes attached on the inside so it's important that you take a look when new shoes come into your possession.

Before instructing you how to clean shiny shoes, we'd like to remind you how to clean the footwear in general. The materials used to make footwear are very diverse, so we are going to focus on the most common ones:

  • To clean your leather shoes it's important that you air them daily, to remove the dampness which may be inside the shoe and can be a source of odour. This applies to shoes of any material. If your leather shoes have shoelaces, you must remove them before cleaning the shoes and don't forget to wash them. Remove all surface stains that you find with a lightly dampened cloth or toothbrush, apply a cream-coloured or colourless shoe cream and then rub a cotton cloth evenly over the leather shoe to restore their original shine.
  • Shoes made of suede, require a bit of pampering, but with a few simple steps, it is easy to keep it as the first day. We recommend that you shake this footwear after each use and it use a soft brush to remove traces of mud or debris, always brushing in the direction of the fabric. We have a special sponge for this type of material that removes dirt, respecting and caring for the suede and that you can find in our section of accessories.  For more difficult spots, we recommend that you use our suede rubber.  Use it to rub on the spot, wiping gently and afterwards brushing any remains there may be.  In addition, in order to prolong the life of your suede shoes, it is highly advisable to have a waterproofing spray that is applied to the surface of the shoe, which will add a protective layer against rain and also against dirt.
  • If you want to wear clean suede shoes clean them in the same way.  The products specifically for this type of materials are enormously useful for correct maintenance of this delicate material. If you find any stains, gently rub with the rubber cleaner specifically for this material and then gently brush away any remains there may be. For this type of shoe we recommend you put a little bit of talc powder inside once a week. In this way you will avoid odours and excessive moisture.
  • If you want to clean fabric footwear, check if they have insoles or removable parts and remove them, dip the shoes in a bowl of cold or tepid water for a few minutes to not shrink them too much. After rub them with a brush and soap and finish by rinsing. The procedure should not last more than 10 minutes. Then let them air dry, never directly exposed to sources of heat or direct sunlight, to prevent discolouration of the fabric.  When they've dried, your shoes will be like new.

With this information you can clean almost all your shoes, but what about glitter footwear that's so in fashion this season? The fun of this footwear is that it always shines. We are going to clear up all the doubts you may have about how to keep this footwear as perfect as the day you bought it. The most important thing in order to clean shoes with glitter is to identify how firmly the glitter is attached to the footwear.

  • Inlaid glitter: in this type of glitter decoration dirt can get trapped (especially mud and dust). To clean these shoes rub the glitter with a dry cloth in the first place without pressing, to remove dirt particles that have become attached. After this, to brighten the shoe we can wipe with a moistened cloth, preferably cotton, over the glitter and allow to air dry.
  • Leather or suede with a shiny finish, although this footwear in called glitter it has little to do with this bright, material. To clean footwear as our Indian glitter ankle boots with fringes, we should follow the genera; instructions to clean footwear. In the case of the boots we use as an example, we will follow the tips for cleaning suede.

In general, remember that we have to let shoes dry before storing them, so they don't retain odours inside. Don't leave them near a source of direct heat and if they have a lot of moisture when you take them off, you can put a bit of talcum powder inside or fill with newspaper and in this way you will also avoid deforming.

Never wet your footwear too much or use aggressive products: grease remover, ammonia or vinegar are products that many recommend to clean shoes and that perhaps in the short term remove dirt, but in the long run damage your footwear irreversibly. A cloth, a brush and soapy water are your best allies to achieve clean shoes.

Remember that at our online shoe store you can find all the shoe styles of the season; Bluchers, ballerina shoes, sneakers, low boots, moccasins… At Pisamonas we hope that these tips will have helped you. Remember that on our web site you can also find cleaning products for footwear.

At Pisamonas we only sell quality shoes manufactured inSpain. If you look after it well and take care a little they will last longer than your child’s foot takes that size.

Find out how to take special care of your kids' feet

By Pisamonas 16 October 2017

Care your kids feet

Our kids feet....

If you’re reading this that’s because you've already discovered us and you know that at Pisamonas you find the best quality footwear for your kids. And now we want to take a step further towards helping you care for your little ones' feet. We'd like to offer you several tips that are sure to be of great help to you, whatever the age of your children.

Our feet carry our weight all day long so it's essential to start taking care of them from a very early age. It's important to choose shoes that are suitable for your child's age and their daily activities in order to prevent them from having problems with their feet later in life.

To take really good care of their feet, start with their nails: it's important to cut toenails regularly from when your baby is around one month old. Following our advice will make help to make your life easier:

  • Try to do it when they are relaxed, as this will make the task easier.
  • Use scissors without a point or with rounded tips.
  • Only cut the part of the nail that is not in contact with the skin.

These tips will not make your child sit still while you trim their nails, but if you try to make it a relaxing, fun experience, that will make life easier for you both.

You should aim to cut their nails about once a week, although this will depend on the rate your child's nails grow at, the time of year...

When cutting their nails, try not to leave pointed edges, as this may cause ingrowing toenails, one of the most common problems in children's feet. If you leave pointed edges, if theit nails become hardened or if you put incorrectly fitting footwear on them, this may cause soreness in the affected area of the foot. As well as causing your child pain, infection may set in and a visit the child podiatrist will be necessary. To avoid this, in addition to taking care of their nails, it’s important you make sure your children's shoes are comfortable and the correct size and width. You can be rest assured that on our website, www.pisamonas.es, you’ll find styles of footwear suitable for all ages and all sizes of feet.

In addition to teaching your kids how important it is to cut their toenails, it's also essential that you teach them to dry their feet thoroughly, especially when they visit wet environments like the pool or the beach. The area between the toes is a place where fungal infections flourish and if this does occur you’ll need to seek medical help to treat it.

If your child is of nursery age (or has already past it) you'll probably have heard about hand, foot and mouth disease. The truth is that there is little you can do by caring for them to prevent your child from catching this virus, which usually affects children under 10 years old and spreads most rapidly in early summer and autumn. As you may be aware, this is a disease which is spread by the mouth, hands or feet, and which causes a temperature and a general feeling of ill health. It’s contagious for 3 to 6 days, during which period the disease is not evident, so by the time you find out that your child has it, a few of their friends will probably have already caught it too.

In general terms, to try to avoid your children having problems with their feet, it's important to watch them when they are walking, both barefoot and with shoes on, and to observe the position of their feet: if they are slanted, if the footprints they leave are irregular or if you notice they put more weight on one foot than the other, you should take your child to the podiatrist, preferably one who specialises in children's feet

One of the keys to taking care of your children's feet throughout the year is to make sure they wear suitable footwear, based on two principles: the time of year and the age of your child. During the summer months you should choose lightweight materials that allow their feet to breathe and help to prevent fungal infections. What's more always choose footwear made of durable, attractive materials to encourage your children to keep their shoes on. If you notice that their shoes have a slight odour, put fine socks on them with their summer shoes, which will help to prevent this.

On the other hand, during the cold months, you should make sure their shoes are hard-wearing, robust, and made of strong materials which protect against the cold, so that their feet are comfortable and warm and cosy too.

The age and day to day activities of your child should dictate the type of shoes that you put on them. During their first few months these should always be soft baby shoes, without hard soles and as pleasant as possible to the touch. When they start toddling, it's important that the shoes you choose that are very well fitting. This is the best way to prevent problems in their way of placing their feet. One past this phase, when your child is walking steadily, it's essential that you choose their shoes according to the daily activities they take part in. They should have both sneakers and shoes, and not always wear the same footwear.

In addition to these tips for care of their small, growing feet, we also want to remind you of an important fact that we've already mentioned in this blog on previous occasions: it's vital that your children don't wear hand-me-down footwear, especially when they are first learning to walk, because each person has their own individual way of treading and handed down shoes may cause problems in this respect.
