Identify Atopic Dermatitis in Babies

Skin disease of atopic dermatitis or also known as eczema often affects infants under the age of 5 years. The symptoms include reddish spots and itching which if prolonged will lead to the dry, scaly, thickened and black baby's skin.

Atopic dermatitis usually appears on the face, neck, elbow creases and groin, leg behind the knee and ankle. The disease is classified as recurrent disease that can appear again even though the baby is healed.
 

Causes
Until now causes of atopic dermatitis are not found, but there are several factors that can trigger the onset of this disease. These factors are:

  • Heredity allergy in the family so that the baby is at risk to have allergies too
  • The baby has allergies, such as allergies to certain foods, dust or other allergies
  • Dry and irritated baby's skin skin leaving it vulnerable to substances that can trigger allergies
  • Baby’s less healthy condition can also cause atopic dermatitis because the immune system can not work optimally to protect the skin
     

Symptoms

  • Babies are fussy, especially at night because they feel itchy
  • Small bumps appears, willed with fluid that is easily broken on the baby's skin
  • Reddish rash appears and swelling when scratched
  • Sometimes with fever
     

Treating and Preventing
Because this belongs to recurrent disease, mothers can take preventive actions as follows:

  • Do not bath the baby for too long, just 10 minutes. Use a mild soap with a neutral pH
  • Keep your baby's skin moist. Mothers can apply My Baby Lotion enriched with Vitamin E and Wheat, clinically tested to be able to nourish and moisturize baby's skin for up to 24 hours. So that the baby's skin is soft and healthy
  • Always wash baby’s new clothes to be free of chemicals. Rinse residual soap to thoroughly clean them
  • Choose clothes made from cotton and avoid wool or synthetic fiber.
  • Immediately change diapers and clothes if dirty
  • Go on a diet according to doctor's instructions and avoid giving babies foods that mothers suspect may cause disease to reappear
