Baby Eczema

Nothing is worse than when something is wrong with your child. When they are uncomfortable, we are uncomfortable too.

Atopic dermatitis, or eczema, is a common problem in infants and children. It usually begins, between two months and six months of age, with very dry and sensitive skin that will then become red and extremely itchy. It often starts on the forehead, cheeks and scalp and spreads to the trunk, creases of the elbows, knees and wrists. With scratching the rash may become raw, crusted and weepy.

Research has shown that 60% -70% of children are virtually clear of the condition by the time they reach their mid-teens. The bad news is that you'll have to find a way to deal with this irritating condition in the meantime.
