Dry and itchy skin caused by Atopic Dermatitis or Eczema can be quite irritable and requires relief even for the most tolerant adults. Can you just imagine how babies feel when they experience such skin irritations? Unfortunately, this condition is quite common in children especially those who have a family history of allergies or asthma. As parents, the best thing that we can do is to find immediate relief that also protects our baby’s skin. For this, I’m thankful to have Aveeno as my partner in caring for my baby’s skin.
Eczema in children is characterized by red, itchy, and dry skin. They appear rash-like or red scaly patches that are usually on the scalp, forehead, or cheeks and may spread to the trunk, elbows, and knees. It’s not a contagious nor a serious health condition but you have to consult a pediatrician or dermatologist in cases wherein skin infection is observed. Although there is no cure for eczema, there are treatments that can help prevent its attacks as well as provide relief for your baby whenever there are flare-ups. The most basic of which is keeping the skin clean with short baths and gentle soap as well as moisturizing the skin with special care products for sensitive skin. Products like those from Aveeno.
Aveeno Baby Cleansing Therapy Wash. A nice bath helps keep the baby’s skin clean and healthy. However, parents with eczema-prone babies need to keep in mind that long baths and harsh soap can cause skin dryness. Not just that it can also strip the skin of natural oils that provide skin protection. The nice thing about Aveeno Baby Wash is that it has an upgraded formulation that gently cleanses your baby’s skin. It also helps in soothing extra dry or eczema-prone skin.
Aveeno Baby Dermexa Moisturizing Cream. Aside from cleansing your baby will also need moisture and protection from a special care product formulated for sensitive skin. This is exactly what the Aveeno Dermexa Cream provides for your baby. It relieves eczema-prone from itchiness, redness, flaking, and stinging. It also helps moisturize the skin to address extra-dry and eczema-prone skin. What I like about this product is that it provides immediate relief. It’s also perfect for my baby’s sensitive skin because it only uses gentle and superior quality ingredients. This one, in particular, has a triple oat complex and ceramide that has been clinically proven as effective for eczema-prone skin.
