Let's be careful with our babies, eczema attack our children very early, from about 3 months, this infant skin disorder is very common and if you do not have the necessary recommendations on them causes the same symptoms as adults, but unfortunately your baby does not manifest the same way.
Both in our children and adults produce scabs, blisters, oozing of fluid, redness, itching and so on., A baby with eczema begins to show symptoms in the face, then it affects their backs, scalp and chest, in children aged 2 years or more folds primarily affects the knees, elbows and wrists. Eczema in infants and children are very upset and spread very quickly, which is why we must act quickly to prevent the redness and itching to expand and produce blisters and scabs, and that these in in turn become infected. One of the main causes leading to a baby with eczema at its most critical is the hereditary factor, it develops in infants from 3 months old and tends to disappear at puberty, often associated with eczema doctors with asthma or hay fever. Here are some steps I recommend are very important warning when trying to combat the signs having a baby with eczema

First of all we have to fight viral or bacterial superinfection of lesions, if your baby will signs of infection such as pus, you have to re-consult the doctor treating your child, in this case would be even better pediatrician or dermatologist .
As a second instance use wet compresses or cool baths two or three times a day, use a tub and dip your baby for about 10 minutes to better dissolve in water or oatmeal chamomile, these products are very effective for dry skin also useful to relieve itching. After bathing it is desirable that your baby with eczema will sconces cornstarch (corn starch or starch), aloe vera or some emulsion yes ... with the skin still wet, you can apply one every day, these products are actually beneficial. From now on those who follow are prescription medications:

Tars are often more effective than topical steroids, tars of these if you have to use 'your baby's eczema is chronic or very dry and also can supplement using steroid creams or ointments.
