Baby Eczema Treatments: 5 Tips for Keeping Your Child’s Skin Clear
RAISING A BABY WITH ECZEMA CAN BE AN EXTREMELY STRESSFUL EXPERIENCE, BUT YOU'RE NOT ALONE IF YOUR BABY HAS ECZEMA.
Eczema is actually quite prevalent among babies, because the most common form of eczema, atopic dermatitis, usually begins in the earliest stages of life. Fortunately, there are effective ways to treat a baby with eczema and in many cases, eczema will go away before they become an adult.
1. Understand Your Child’s Eczema Triggers.
If your baby is particularly sensitive to certain irritants or environmental allergens, such as cigarette smoke or pollen, it is best to avoid these potential triggers. Certain allergenic foods such as peanuts and eggs may also trigger eczema.
2.Try a Lukewarm Bath.
This can help soothe the pain of an eczema rash and hydrate the skin. It is important to use lukewarm water, as water that’s too hot or cold could potentially exacerbate the pain of a rash. Adding soothing products like colloidal oatmeal can also help soothe an itch.
3. Apply Moisturizer.
Moisturizer is best applied after you bathe your baby, since this will help lock in the moisture — especially important if your baby suffers from dry skin. Over-the-counter, paraben-free eczema creams or emollients with ceramides can help improve the strength of the skin barrier and prevent irritated skin.
4. Try Different Types of Fabrics.
Some fabrics, like wool, may trigger a rash for babies with eczema. The highly breathable cotton fabric is usually a good choice.
5. Prevent Your Baby From Scratching.
Distracting and entertaining them as much as you can. When this doesn’t work, or you need a break, try swaddling them. This can be comforting and prevent them from itching at the same time. Eczema mittens can also keep the baby from scratching when they’re out and about.
Baby eczema is extremely common for little ones to get, and can be incredibly tough for them to deal with as they have no way of scratching themselves or seeking out relief.
There’s nothing worse than seeing your child suffer, and if you’ve experienced eczema before in your life, then you’ll know that it truly can be a painful experience. Although there are plenty of options out there for adults that involve harsh chemicals and ingredients, these simply aren’t suitable for children and babies, and most of the time aren’t even suitable for the adults they’re prescribed for.
Choosing a gentle approach like the one offered by Eczema Honey Co means that you’ll feel a peace of mind you’re soothing and treating their condition without putting any nasty or harsh chemicals on their body. As they grow older and hopefully grow out of condition, you’ll know that you did your best to keep their precious skin preserved and ease them from the itching that eczema brings.

"Love the eczema honey stick and nut free eczema honey My son has been suffering from eczema since he was about 4 months old have tried everything literally even the prescription medicine didn't work for him, was sceptical of trying eczema but I'm glad i did, i mean he still has minimal flare ups but nothing compared to how he used to be. I use the stick on the go and the honey jar for home and after baths."

Our customers can't stop raving about Eczema Honey:
"I've used Countless ointments and creams and none of them has gotten us to this point right here! HONEY did this! One of my old patient's wound Dr had given me some extra medi honey to use on a bad misquito bite on my leg and i NEVER thought to use it on him until about 3 weeks ago. I went to put his perscription ointment on and he screamed and cried because it was burning him so bad 😢 at that very moment i was like "let me try this and see is if helps him".The Medi Honey got the wounds closed within about 3 days but i kept wrapping his arms with the honey as a way of conditioning the skin until i could figure out my next step. and while doing some research I came across Eczema Honey Co ... And their eczema cream has gotten him these results in about a week and a half! Thank GOD! i think I'm on to something good here!"
"I am buying two more jars so we always have them around. My granddaughter is allergic to peanuts, casein and eggs so is constantly itchy no matter how careful we are with her food. This is the ONLY product that has worked to relief itching and heal her skin and it's so natural we feel good about using it. Thanks!"
"We use the Eczema Honey Nut-Free Skin-Soothing Cream for my son's eczema. We are so excited that this cream seems to help hydrate his skin. We have made huge strides in his skin care in addition to this cream, and he now enjoys much clearer skin on his legs and arms, which were his most aggravated areas. I would recommend this product as a fantastic moisturizer and helping reduce inflammation. I hope our pictures speak for themselves for how we have addressed our son's severe eczema."
"My sweet baby had had terrible eczema and itchiness since birth. We found out she’s allergic to polyester of all things. But getting to that diagnosis was such an ordeal. We had to keep her in mitts or she would draw blood from scratching. Her skin was splotchy, we went to the best doctors, endured tons of meds, side effects and sleepless nights. I finally decided to try this after months of contemplation and after about two weeks of consistent use I’m happy to report that my baby has improved drastically! Her skin is amazingly smooth! And she’s not itchy. This is the best she’s looked! I wish I bit the bullet sooner and got this instead of using toxic topical creams on her so early."
