Kritze Kratze, the loveable blue monster, gives neurodermatitis a face that children can associate with – not the face of a hero but of the disease itself. This is because children need to come to terms with the fact that they will very probably have this skin complaint for the rest of their lives. This clumsy protagonist playfully teaches the little ones how to deal with neurodermatitis and in turn, it helps to relieve their misery.
Whether it is the “putting-on-the-cream” song, paper models to print, reading or audio books, the contents that Scholz & Volkmer designed and produced are both child-friendly and educational. Collated under the name “Monsterthek” (Monster activity library) these materials can be found in the neurodermatitis section on the La Roche-Posay website and downloaded for free. These materials do not only serve the children well, but also the parents, as they are fun to use and help make their lives easier too.
