Tips on natural eczema treatment for baby atopic dermatitis

If your baby has atopic dermatitis, a more severe form of eczema, you understand the frustration and anxiety that comes with the constant redness, inflammation, and itchy skin. These painful symptoms lead to sleepless nights for both your child and the whole family. There are sufficient natural, non-medicated remedies available to help manage your baby’s skin condition if you prefer a natural alternative to mainstay steroid-containing creams or prescription medication. We suggest following one or more of these tips on natural eczema treatment for baby atopic dermatitis before looking into prescription medication or treatments, especially for newborns, infant, and babies.

First, it is important to identify the main triggers for your baby’s eczema flare ups. There are a variety of reasons for eczema but the most common triggers are usually related to food allergies, household products, environmental allergens, and skincare products that contain harsh chemicals and fragrances. Eczema can also be triggered by changes in the weather, pollen, and excess stress. By pinpointing the underlying reason for a flare up, you can better minimize symptoms to a more manageable state. If you are unable to identify a trigger, always talk to your doctor about other possible underlying causes.

It is difficult to stop babies from scratching and making their skin even more irritated, especially during the night time. Make sure to keep their nails cut short and soften them with a file to prevent them from creating more deep scratches and cuts. It can also help to put mittens on their hands before bed to prevent scratching as well. 

A short, lukewarm bath is an effective way to treat eczema at home. Use a very mild and gentle soap that is free of harsh chemicals or fragrances, such as LEMYKA’s Shampoo and Wash. After 5 to 10 minutes, gently pat dry and then apply a lightweight, non-greasy moisturizer to the skin. LEMYKA’s natural eczema therapy creams will soothe, moisturize, and relieve intense itching. You can also give your baby a wet dressing after the bath by taking a wet gauze, or cotton clothing and apply it to the affected area. Leave the wet layer on for 3 to 8 hours with another layer of dry, light clothing on top. This will help soothe the skin and ensure that topical treatments are best absorbed. 

LEMYKA provides a variety of eczema therapy lotions to calm down symptoms and intensively moisturize skin. Try using our Hydrating Cream on your baby’s affected areas to moisturize skin, relieve intense itching, and strengthen the skin barrier to help prevent future flare ups. You can combine the Hydrating Cream with our other products such as the Healing Lotion, Calming Cream, or Body Milk for best results.

We know that dealing with your baby’s atopic dermatitis can be frustrating and overwhelming. If you are having trouble identifying triggers, choosing a product, or have any other questions, LEMYKA customer support is here to help you. We can provide you with personal consultations and in some cases create customized formulations to address your skincare needs.
