The old tell-tale myth amongst Basotho women is that expecting mothers should take traditionally concocted medicines in order to protect their infants from skin conditions such as eczema (although they never really say such names). However, doctors and nurses advice against this practice saying that there is no scientific proof that these remedies are good for the health of the expectant mother as well as her unborn child. Keletso Nyareli, a first time mother to a son of nearly three years of age is one of the many mother whose children are perturbed by the wrath of eczema.
