FOL­LOW THESE TIPS TO DEAL WITH ECZEMA

Mother & Baby (Australia) - - The Guide -

• When bathing your baby, avoid harsh soaps and bub­ble bath and give them a short, luke­warm bath. • Pop a clean cot­ton bib on baby to ab­sorb drool, and change it reg­u­larly, as baby’s drib­bles can ex­ac­er­bate the sen­si­tive skin around the mouth, chin and neck. • Mois­turise baby’s skin reg­u­larly to pre­vent flare-ups us­ing a gen­tle emol­lient cream, lo­tion or oint­ment. • Dress your baby in light, breath­able cot­ton cloth­ing that can be lay­ered for easy re­moval if they get too warm.
