It can be a result of genetics, weather, or even food allergies. Not to worry, eczema can be controlled and there are many ways to take care of your child’s eczema in the comfort of your own home!
To help prevent skin irritations and rashes, it is important to bathe your child in warm water regularly, while ensuring you are using gentle washes with no harsh chemicals, such as synthetic perfumes.
