How to prevent atopic dermatitis in children.
As there is no cure for eczema, most parents try to find a routine to prevent the regular break outs of eczema.
Fortunately, there is much you can do to prevent these terrible flare-ups.
- Bathing and moisturizing the skin daily will strengthen the skin and protect it from irritants.
- Bath water should not be too hot as it will dry out the skin, and bath time should be no more than 10 minutes.
- Avoid shampoos and baby wash with fragrance. If you are not sure what to use look for products with a NEA Seal of Acceptance (National Eczema Association).
Other things you can do to avoid baby eczema symptoms and flare-ups:
- Wash baby's clothes with fragrance free detergent and avoid fabric softeners.
- Dress your baby in breathable cotton clothes.
- Avoid hot and humid weather that causes excessive sweating. On the other hand, cold and dry weather can also trigger a flare up because it makes the skin extremely dry.
