Old School to Cutting Edge: Fashion for Everyone

In this blog, I plan to give tips and ideas related to beauty and fashion, but more importantly than that, I hope to give you the confidence you need to really embrace unique fashions. Enjoy!

So Your Baby Has Eczema: Why It Happens And What To Do About It

Beauty & Fashion Blog

It is never fun to see a young child in distress, and baby eczema certainly causes plenty of tears. The red, itchy welts that have appeared on your child out of nowhere are distressing to both you and him. However, there are plenty of ways to fight back against eczema and to clear up the skin irritation. Once you discover what causes the problem, then you can get rid of it permanently.

Where did eczema come from?

Before you can eradicate a skin condition, you need to discover what is causing it in the first place. Baby eczema can appear out of the blue overnight. Your first indication of it is red, scaly patches that occur around the folds of skin near knees and elbows. Eczema often initially presents itself as a bunch of small looking insect bites, but it rapidly spreads.

Eczema is caused by a variety of different factors. Some children have more sensitive skin than others, so they react to skincare and haircare products used on their delicate skin. Other children get eczema because they react to pollen or dust mites in the home. Eczema can also be caused by food allergies to everyday items like fruit or nuts. You need to find the trigger before you can stop it.

How to combat eczema naturally

The first step to getting rid of eczema is to move through the list of triggers you may think are causing it. Have you recently changed baby shampoo or baby wash? If so, stop using it for a week to see if the eczema flare dies down. Next, look at new foods you have recently introduced to the diet and stop feeding them. Add them back into the diet one by one to see which one may be causing the flare up.

If you take your baby to the doctor, they will prescribe a short-term dosage of steroid cream to clear away eczema. Obviously, you don't want to use that for long, so look for natural ways to calm the skin. Natural baby products, for example, include body wash and shampoos made without harsh chemicals which irritate baby skin. They do not strip the skin of natural oils and soothe irritation by using herbal ingredients. Now that you know your baby's skin is sensitive, switching to natural products helps to prevent eczema flare-ups.

It will be a matter of trial and error to get rid of your baby's eczema, but it can be done using lots of love and a little patience.
