Many children suffer from eczema from a very young age, and it can be incredibly uncomfortable and upsetting for them. You've tried all the creams on the market, and all you want is your child's skin to be treated and cared for.
Whether it be the perfect bath or changing up your detergents, these little things that you can do at home might just do the trick.
Bathing your baby or toddler is an effective way of treating their eczema as their skin needs that extra moisture. Make sure the water isn't too hot as this can dry their skin out and make it more irritable, and definitely moisturise
their whole body straight after to lock in the moisture.
2) Natural bath salts
There is no high quality evidence as yet showing that salt water baths are beneficial for atopic eczema sufferer, however, there is plenty of anecdotal evidence
suggesting salt water baths can help relieve and treat eczema.
