Does Your Baby Have Dry Skin or Eczema? Read These Tips & Truths To Find Out

Eczema Tips and Truths

Does your wee one suffer from itchy, sensitive skin? It might be just dry skin, or it’s possible it’s the skin condition known as eczema. We’ve got some information on the condition and of course, come bearing kids’ skin product suggestions that are made specifically for eczema.

Tips & Truths about Eczema

  • Eczema is a chronic condition (meaning it keeps coming back), that usually appears in the first 2 years of life
  • Eczema can run in families (just like good looks, green eyes or a flair for the dramatic)
  • Babies’ symptoms include itching and a rash, usually on the sides of the arms and legs or on the cheeks. It helps to bathe them in a steroid and fragrance-free, naturally anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal bath oil
  • Older children and adults tend to get eczema on the neck, elbows or behind the knees, but can use specially formulated body wash to ease symptoms and treat with a calendulis-based cream
  • Cold weather, artificial heat and hot weather can cause eczema to be worse. Keep bath and shower temperatures luke-warm throughout the year. Use this as an excuse to turn the thermostat down slightly and snuggle under a cozy blanket
  • Keeping the skin clean and applying moisturizer throughout the day is the best defense. Put a tube of skin cream in your child’s backpack, or their cubby at school, where it is always accessible.

    Lukewarm bath help to hydrate the baby’s skin and also lessen the inching. It’s best to use moisturizer with ceramides, as eczema is result of less ceramides in body. Fragrance free oil, cream or ointment when used daily also helps in retaining baby’s skin natural moisture.
