Eczema in Babies

Skin is dry, irritable and itchy and reacts adversely to scratching. Most affected areas are on the face and areas that rub when baby crawls. More often than not a hereditary problem.

To prevent:

  • Prevention may not be possible if condition is hereditary. Your doctor's advice should be sought.
  • Avoidance of woollen and synthetic clothes and chlorinated swimming pools is preferable.

To treat:
  • Your doctor's recommendation may involve cortisone creams, moisturisers and a change of diet.
