Home Remedies for Eczema in Children
Watching your child suffer the constant itch and irritation of baby eczema can be really frustrating!
Eczema is a lingering, itchy, but non-contagious inflammatory skin condition that is common in children. There are different types of eczema, and the most common type that afflicts children is called atopic dermatitis.
Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, affects an estimated 30 percent of the U.S. population, mostly children and adolescents, according to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases .
In children, this condition typically starts at age 6 months or anytime within the first five years of the child’s life. In some children, the symptoms may last through childhood and adolescence.
A 2010 study published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology found that 39 percent of Caucasian children develop eczema by age 3. Interestingly, the study also found that children who have a dog in the home are significantly less likely to develop eczema at any age .
So far, experts have not identified a definitive cause of eczema in children. Some experts believe that it’s due to a nutritional deficiency, while others believe it may first arise due to an allergen or other irritant.
Some of the widely accepted causes and contributing factors leading to eczema include dry and sensitive skin that cracks; poor immunity; environmental conditions; allergies to foods, laundry detergents or other chemicals; and changes in temperature.
Also, low vitamin D levels during pregnancy may increase the risk of a child developing eczema before age 1.
Symptoms of eczema in children can range from mild to severe, and change from one outbreak to another. Common symptoms include:
Small, raised bumps that may ooze liquid and develop a crust.
Thick, dry and scaly skin that cracks.
Red or brown patches of skin on the hands, feet, ankles, wrists, neck, upper chest, eyelids, in skin folds, and on the face and scalp of infants.
Sensitive skin that is swollen and raw from scratching.
Intense itching, often disrupting sleep patterns.
Rashes on the skin.
As there is no definitive cause of eczema, there is no identified cure either. But there are some effective natural treatments that may help prevent future flare-ups and ease discomfort during an outbreak.
Here are the top 5 home remedies for eczema in children.
1. Moisturizer
Using the right moisturizer is one of the best ways to deal with eczema flare-ups in children. Lack of moisturizing can cause skin dryness and lead to eczema flare-ups.
2. Colloidal Oatmeal
Colloidal oatmeal (oats ground into an extremely fine powder) is a good remedy for children suffering from eczema.
It helps soothe and comfort itchy skin. It contains anti-irritating, anti-inflammatory and soothing properties that provide instant relief.
3. Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar can be used both internally and externally for eczema relief in children as well as adults.
Raw and organic apple cider vinegar helps balance the skin’s pH level. Also, its antibacterial and antifungal properties help kill bacteria and fungi that sometimes accompany eczema.
4. Aloe Vera
A 2012 study published in Scientific World Journal suggests that topical use of aloe vera could serve as a safe and effective treatment for diaper dermatitis in infants.
So, whether your child suffers from diaper dermatitis or atopic dermatitis, aloe vera is an excellent remedy.
5. Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is another effective remedy for eczema, whether for a child or an adult. It has antifungal, antibacterial, antimicrobial and antioxidant properties.
Coconut oil works as a good moisturizer to help keep your child’s skin from drying out.
