Soothing Solutions: A Guide to Eczema Relief


What is Eczema?

Eczema refers to various skin conditions that cause itchiness, redness, and inflammation. There are several different types, the most common being atopic dermatitis, which is long-lasting, and results in dry, itchy skin, affecting people of all ages. While babies can develop atopic dermatitis, they are also prone to other forms of eczema such as seborrheic dermatitis, commonly known as cradle cap. This kind of eczema usually appears as patches of scaly skin on the infant’s scalp during the first six months to five years of their life, often feeling fragile and flaky. 


What Causes Eczema?

There are multiple causes for eczema, so it can be difficult to boil it down to just one factor. Understanding potential triggers is important to manage flare-ups for you or your little ones. 

The development of eczema is usually caused by a combination of genetics and environmental factors. Children who come from families with a history of eczema, asthma, or hay fever are more likely to develop atopic dermatitis. Immune system dysfunction or environmental triggers can also contribute to the development of this skin condition. 

Common triggers for atopic dermatitis can include: dry skin, heat, sweat, stress, fragrances, pollen, cold dry air, and more. Infants and children may even have triggers related to certain foods, make sure to talk to your child’s doctor to identify any potential food allergies or other triggers and avoid them. 

Infants can develop cradle cap from a combination of their genes, yeast that lives naturally on the skin, and environmental factors such as stress or weather conditions, causing the skin to overproduce oil. Researchers suggest hormonal changes from the mother may also play a role in triggering cradle cap. Since infants have a less developed skin barrier, they are more susceptible to irritation and inflammation. A weak skin barrier could even trigger the immune system’s response to develop eczema-like symptoms, as irritants and allergens can penetrate the skin more easily. To avoid weak skin barrier function, it is important to maintain proper skin hydration!
