   Infant eczema (neonatal eczema) About Newborn Rush













Rash and eczema on the baby's face are noticeable around 2 weeks after birth. There are a lot of moms and dads who think what to do. Let's talk about the care you need when it's like that.


First cleanse and moisturize. Baby eczema is caused by the hormones given by the mother, causing the sebaceous glands to ooze out oil, resulting in pimples. At that time, the sweat glands also open, so they sweat more than adults. Since there are as many sweat glands and sebaceous glands as adults, babies' skin, which has a very small surface area, sweats like a monkey and loses moisture.
A baby's skin becomes very dirty with sweat and oil, and bacteria quickly grow on it. There are few indigenous bacteria that can beat it, so the bacteria will grow more and more.
These make baby eczema worse.

So the important thing is to take a bath every day as much as possible.

However, if you use too much soap, the sebum that protects your skin will fall off more than necessary. Therefore, use a small amount of soap once every two days (once every two baths).When not using it, it is enough to rinse it off with hot water. , Sweat and germs can be quickly removed with just hot water.

If you are very itchy, it may be effective to wash your face with foam as well.
After washing, pat dry with a soft towel to absorb moisture, then apply moisturizer all over the body from face to feet.



Moisturize well after bath.
Use a simple moisturizer whenever possible. Anything with too many ingredients is not suitable for sensitive skin. It is difficult to determine if you have an allergy or not.

Moisturizers are used differently. For example, an oil-based product penetrates the skin quickly, but oil alone dries quickly, so it is better to layer a cream-based product on top of it. A simple one is Vaseline, which can be used on relatively any skin type.

Seborrheic eczema is when yellow sap seeps out from the hair roots (hair, eyebrows, forehead, etc.) and hardens into scabs. This is also one of infant eczema, but it is easier for bacteria to propagate, so be sure to wash gently every day.

When the sweat glands open up, the baby loses more water from his body. I'm sweating more and more than adults think. I sweat a lot while sleeping at night, and drool and milk stain my mouth, chin, and ears. In the morning, the baby's face is very dirty, so clean it with lukewarm water in the morning and keep it moisturized.
Wet the gauze well with lukewarm water, gently wipe off the dirt on your face, behind the ears, neck, etc., and dry it with a lightly dry towel.
Drain the moisture with gauze and apply a moisturizer.

Apply moisturizer twice a day, in the morning and after bathing. If you can't take a bath, let's wash the buttocks. Moisturize your face and neck with a quick wipe before going to bed.

When you wash your body and face, be gentle and kind. Avoid rubbing too hard. It feels good to wash soap with foam.

Children with sensitive skin or eczema should also pay attention to clothing. To avoid overdressing, avoid using synthetic fibers where they come into direct contact with the skin as much as possible to prevent static electricity.

If there is a spot that is oozing, various bacteria will grow there and worsen the condition of the skin, so medicine may be necessary depending on the condition. In that case, you may need to see a doctor.

If redness and tingling spread, use antibiotic cream together. Apply a little to areas with redness and itching. Be careful not to lick it. However, these measures differ depending on the condition of the rash and eczema, so first consult a specialist.
