What is Eczema?

What is Eczema? To simplify things, Eczema is inflammation of the skin due to allergies. Eczema can be triggered by just about anything coming in contact with the skin. Dry, flaky skin appears over red, inflamed areas, causing intense itching and burning.

Eczema is a very common condition, and it affects all races and ages, especially young babies. About 1-2% of adults have eczema, and as many as 20% of children are affected. Most affected individuals have their first episode before age 5 years.

For some, the eczema will improve with time. For others, however, eczema is a chronic disorder. Eczema can become a vicious cycle. Something irritates your baby’s skin, making it red and inflamed. It itches. Baby rubs it. The skin becomes more inflamed. The outer protective layer of the skin is lost. The affected area is even more sensitive to irritants, and dries out easily. Baby continues to be exposed to whatever it was that triggered the episode in the first place. Even more rash develops. The cycle perpetuates itself.

Eczema can be a difficult, frustrating condition. The natural human desire to scratch or rub an itchy just makes the condition worse, and treatments can be slow and are not always completely effective.

ECZEMA TRIGGERS:

Excessive scratching and rubbing (Imagine your little one rubbing his/her cheeks)

Liquids: such as milk, saliva, baby foods, greasy foods

Certain foods, commonly: peanut, soy, wheat, cow’s milk, eggs

Environment: cigarette smoke, detergents, soaps, cats, dogs

Eczema is not contagious.

WHAT DOES ECZEMA LOOK LIKE?

Eczema usually starts out red and raised, sometimes it gets bumpy like acne. Eventually, it dries out becoming scaly and thick. With scratching, the lesions can look scabbed and bleed. The most common areas are the cheeks, hands, elbows, and knees, but it can happen anywhere.

ECZEMA TREATMENTS

Avoid Triggers: Of course, it is important to avoid the potential allergic triggers. But oftentimes, that is easier said than done, as some kids seem to be allergic to everything!

Moisturize The Skin: Brief baths in lukewarm water. Only use mild soap if baby is dirty or just use wet facecloth if you can. Moisturize with effective creams or ointments, such as Eucerin or Aquaphor.

Breaking the cycle of inflammation: Topical steroids, such are routinely used, but must be used cautiously.

Immunomodulators, such as Protopic and Elidel have a FDA black box warning because they can cause cancer in your baby
