Here are a few simple changes moms can do to relieve their child’s eczema.
Switch your laundry detergent. Dreft is harmful and is no better or gentle than tide. I used dreft with my son and it caused his skin to itch and become dry. These are simple changes you can make in and around your home. Eczema once it itches, can be very uncomfortable for the baby, relieving my son was my number one concern. His eczema was clearing in the first 2 weeks. He is 7 and is totally eczema free.
Switch to a french milled bath bar. We were using cetaphil soap which is one of the most recommended soaps by pediatricians. It works for a minute but the symptoms always came back. The key here is no toxins or chemicals on the skin.
Switch your lotion. We used Aveeno and Eucerin which helped a little but again, the infant eczema came back. These are little changes that are effective over the long term. I tried every trick in the book even down to oatmeal baths. We wasted alot of money on remedies.
