Baby Skin Care: Dealing With Eczema

Hello buddies! I am back with another  Mom / Mom to blog post which I used to write monthly to give advice and inspiration from my personal experience and researchers to new moms out there, since I myself keep looking for guiding tips from other Mom blogs and maternity websites. 

Nowadays when I get flashbacks and memories from my daughters newborn period, the first thing I remember and miss the most is that soft newborn baby skin and smell. I guess we all relate to that :-) During my daughter early months I made sure than and until today to use good quality products when treating her skin and keeping it moisturized and healthy, especially during the winter when it gets dry in here. I keep searching for what is highly recommended and what is adviced to avoid in general.

Skin health is a very important thing just like any other body part, lucky my daughter did not have skin problems but as a Mom, I understand how frustrating it is for new Moms with newborn or toddler skin problems such as eczema. Eczema is a skin rash, it tends to show up on the cheeks and scalp, but it may spread to the arms, legs, chest, or other parts of the body. After a child's first year, it's most likely to show up on the insides of the elbows, the backs of the knees, the wrists, and the ankles, but it can also appear elsewhere.

No one knows for sure what causes it, but the tendency to have eczema is often inherited. So your child is more likely to have it if you or a close family member has had eczema, asthma, or allergies. Eczema is not an allergic reaction to a substance, but allergens or irritants in the environment (such as pollen or cigarette smoke) can trigger it. Less frequently, it can be triggered by allergens in your child's diet – or in your diet if your child is breastfeeding.

I highlight here 10 baby skin care products from Check Pregnancy Website which are a good use as an eczema treatment. Because steroids are harmful to a baby’s skin, these eczema creams are recommended by many of the dermatologists. It is evident that slathering on a mild and fragrance-free cream meant for eczema is one of the best treatments for eczema. They soothe the skin perfectly if applied several times daily on the skin of the affected baby.
