Baby Eczema Treatment with Aquaphor Baby Healing Ointment

Eczema is a skin condition which can affect adults, children and even babies.

Babies who get eczema will develop a dry, itchy rash on the cheeks, forehead and scalp. If not treated on time it can move to other parts of the body.

Babies have soft natural skin and frequent washing can cause the skin to dry out resulting in eczema. Other reasons may be due to having a reaction to chemicals in the lotions, shampoo and soaps used on baby’s skin, irritants from the environment, food allergies or heat. 

Always keep your baby’s skin well moisturized to protect against eczema. Dress your baby in clothes made of cotton. Babies susceptible to eczema will be comfortable in cotton clothes rather than clothing made from other materials such as wool. Wool has been known to trigger and worsen the condition.

Aquaphor Baby Healing Ointment has been a treatment used for many years to treat eczema especially on babies. After your baby’s evening bath apply a thin layer of the ointment on the skin. If the rash does not seem to be healing by morning get your baby checked by a doctor. 

Refrain from using commercially bought products on baby’s skin unless the doctor says its okay to. Using the wrong brands can cause serious damage to baby’s skin.
