Eczema on baby's face: causes and natural solutions

In babies, the face is the area most affected by eczema . Baby scratches, squirms and has difficulty falling asleep?

It is essential to treat eczema attacks with daily, natural and appropriate care. Discover our advice and our pretty treatment box with the essentials to treat and relieve baby eczema of the face and body!

What causes eczema on the face?

The face is often the first area affected by eczema in babies. Although the causes of eczema are diverse, babies' facial skin is very sensitive and very permeable to external aggressions. The water evaporates creating dry skin causing dehydration and dry patches .

Until the age of 3, the epidermis of a child's face is immature with a fragile skin barrier. Result: the skin does not perform its barrier function, the skin of the baby's face is not protected and receptive to pollution and allergens. When it feels attacked, the skin reacts and the body triggers eczema on the face as an immune defense.

Beyond genetic predisposition, the child's environment, diet and hygiene have a direct influence on eczema attacks. Babies with atopic skin also have a more favorable allergic environment.

How to recognize infant eczema on the face?

A baby's facial eczema can manifest itself with various symptoms and develops in flare-ups. This can be redness, itching, scabs, red patches, dry patches, and sometimes even small fluid-filled blisters. These symptoms vary depending on the stage of inflammation . In the event of an eczema attack, it is even possible to see lesions on the baby's face and patches that may bleed. All areas of the face can be affected:

  • Cheeks
  • Forehead
  • The chin
  • Around the eyes and on the eyelids

Beyond the visible side, eczema is also very uncomfortable for your baby. It causes itching, irritation and disrupts sleep: your little one is in a “grumpy” mood, scratches, squirms or rubs his face!

This is why it is crucial to identify eczema! If you notice persistent symptoms, it is important to consult your doctor or pediatrician for an accurate diagnosis. In the meantime, you can relieve your baby's facial eczema by adopting a gentle, natural skincare routine.
