Can babies get eczema?
During your baby’s first few months, you may notice crusty or flaky patches on their skin which could be eczema.
If it is indeed eczema, babies with light skin will have patches of red skin and darker-skinned babies will have purple, brown or greyish patches of skin.
The patches of skin will be dry, rough and itchy, typically appearing on the cheeks and the joints of their arms and legs.
Eczema can affect just about any part of your baby’s body.
How can emollients help me to manage dry skin and eczema?
Emollients and moisturisers help to ease your eczema symptoms by hydrating your skin, helping to keep your skin soft and controlling your flare-ups.
Emollients work by forming a protective layer over your skin which helps to keep moisture from escaping, hydrating your skin from the inside out.
Some emollients also contain ingredients which can protect your skin from irritants like soap or detergents, taking a two-pronged approach to managing your eczema flare-ups.
How often should you shower with eczema?
When your skin isn’t clean, you’re more likely to have an eczema flare-up.
It’s recommended that you should shower daily to ensure that your skin is free from the day’s dirt and grime.
But what’s important is the time spent in the shower, the water temperature and the products used - as your skin is dry, you should use the ‘soak and seal’ method to trap in that much needed moisture.
What is the difference between eczema and psoriasis?
Eczema causes red, inflamed skin that is usually extremely itchy.
Psoriasis usually causes well-defined patches of redness and the skin is thicker and more inflamed than with eczema, with more of a burning sensation than just an itch.
Eczema usually appears on parts of the body that bend, like the inner elbow, behind the knees, wrists, ankles or on your neck.
Psoriasis often shows up on the palms of your hands, your elbows, knees, scalp, face, lower back or on the soles of the feet.
