Eczema in Children

Eczema in children is often developed from contact with irritating chemicals or fabrics. Your baby’s skin is 20-30% thinner than your own, therefore, chemicals in soaps or even certain bubble baths can easily inflame their sensitive skin and lead to irritating rashes that overtime can develop into eczema.

Eczema comes in the form of dry and itchy patches of skin. Depending on your child’s skin tone, these inflamed patches could look red or a brownish purple. If the irritation continues, the severity of the eczema could increase and spread to other parts of their body. As the skin gets drier, the eczema patch can crack and bled. This is where the severity of this skin condition could increase as through the open wound bacteria can enter the skin and cause infections, taking form in painful blisters. Eczema can also take the form of a severe nappy rash, which is ultimately caused by harsh chemicals in nappy products along with irritated, dried out skin.  With summer just around the corner, it is important to keep in mind that heat and sweat can worsen the condition of eczema. Therefore, if you suspect your child is developing a reaction to your current skincare products it is important to address the issue immediately!
