What is eczema?
A common skin disease, adult eczema and baby eczema come in different forms: contact eczema, atopic eczema or infectious eczema. The most common form is called atopic dermatitis which results in very dry, scaly skin showing red patches on the skin. This dryness weakens the protective skin barrier which makes the skin sensitive to external allergens.
The main area where baby eczema develops is the face. We then see red patches appear on the forehead, chin and cheeks. In older children, eczema forms in the folds of skin on the wrists, elbows, thighs and knees.
Symptoms and causes of eczema
This inflammatory disease, although benign, remains very uncomfortable, especially in infants and babies. Indeed, eczema usually develops on several parts of the body and causes severe itching .
It manifests as flare-ups and makes baby irritable causing crying and squirming which disrupts sleep and feeding.
In most cases, eczema results from atopic skin . Very dry, baby's skin is devoid of its protective film. It therefore no longer acts as a barrier against external allergens which penetrate the body and cause allergic reactions.
In short, eczema flare-ups can have their origins at the hereditary level. A child whose one parent has atopic dermatitis has a 50% risk in addition to reporting eczema .
How to prevent eczema?
Although difficult to understand, there are nevertheless simple gestures to minimize the appearance of atopic dermatitis and reduce attacks:
- Space out the baths and use a neutral soap-free cleansing gel
- Protect your skin with a protective oil before the bath
- Take short baths
- Choose clothes made of natural materials such as cotton or linen
- Use an allergen-free detergent or Marseille soap
- Hydrate your child's skin to maintain a good balance of the epidermis
Since eczema is usually an allergic reaction, it is essential to pay attention to your baby's diet. If eczema flares up after eating a particular food, you should see your doctor to see if it's a food allergy .
What treatment should be used to treat baby eczema?
When your baby suffers from eczema , it is important to make an appointment with your doctor to identify the cause of this skin condition . As a general rule, the medical profession offers treatments based on corticosteroids to be applied locally.
Cortisone-based creams relieve itching and fight inflammation effectively. However, their actions act at time T, but do not allow the problem to be dealt with in depth. In short, corticosteroid-based cosmetics dry out already very fragile skin and often contain ingredients that babies should avoid, such as endocrine disruptors.
The atopic-prone skin with eczema of babies and young children is even more permeable to external elements. From this observation, using natural treatments remains one of the best solutions for taking care of the fragile skin of children. Cream, oil, washing gel, there are a multitude of cosmetics and natural products that effectively fight the symptoms of atopic dermatitis and help prevent eczematous flare -ups .
