Eczema can show up as red, crusty patches on your baby's skin, often during their first few months. It’s common and very treatable. Ointments are semi-solid greases that help to hydrate the skin by preventing water loss. They are very good at helping the skin retain moisture. Many people dislike them because of their greasiness.
Here are two good baby eczema ointments:
1. MD Moms® Baby Silk Daily Skin Protection Moisturizing Balm
The moisturizing balm is quick-absorbing, lightweight, and is perfect for restoring and maintaining the skin’s moisture barrier. These products are paraben-free, preservative-free, sulfate-free, hypoallergenic and contain no phthalates, lanolin, mineral oil, petroleum, waxes, wheat or gluten.
2.AVEENO® Baby Eczema Therapy Nighttime Balm
It is the first and only nighttime balm specially formulated with ACTIVE NATURALS® Oat, which soothes dry, itchy baby skin without leaving a greasy feeling behind. It helps strengthen the skin’s natural moisture barrier and helps prevent recurrence of dry, itchy skin from eczema. And it’s paraben-free, steroid-free, fragrance-free, and hypoallergenic. Pediatrician Recommended Brand. An eczema treatment gentle enough for everyday use on babies’ sensitive skin.
Please see your baby's doctor if the ointments above cannot improve the rash or if the rash looks infected.
