Stop your infant from scratching their eczema

When you think about eczema you feel like scratching. When you have eczema, the hardest thing to do is to stop scratching. There are times when you simply forget about this and you wake up scratching your skin really hard. But imagine you are a child. Stopping your infant from scratching their eczema can really be a problem.

The most important aspect we will deal with is hygiene. Good hygiene is a must when fighting eczema, which can be easily worsen by bacteria. If you donít have good hygiene, then I must say it will be difficult fighting eczema. Good hygiene can be difficult when dealing with infants as they have a tendency to touch, and taste, anything in their way.

So, what I recommend for such a situation is an anti-bacterial gel, the type used in hospitals by doctors and nurses. What this gel does when applied on the hand is to kill no less than 99.9% of all the bacteria. Just think of it as moisture cream which can kill any common bacteria when applied. You can buy it from any local drugstore or pharmacy without the need of a prescription and apply it on the infantís skin by rubbing it on their hands.

Moisturizer cream has also several beneficial effects. Once your skin is moisturized, you have a good chance of keeping away swelling, redness and of course itching. Yet, most of the moisturizer eczema cream that really works are quality products, which can only be bought with a prescription from your doctor.

Here are some tips of how to keep your infants from scratching their eczema:

- Since heat is known to worsen eczema, you could try to keep your body at a lower temperature. Also, it is advisable to avoid fragrance products, such as soap. Non-fragrance products are specially designed not to irritate the skin more.

- Nutirtion is important too. It is known the fact that dairy products can lead to eczema, and especially in infants. Most of the mothers choose to feed their babies with cow milk, and this normally leads to eczema. So, try to breast feed your baby as long as you can. This way their body will get stronger and so their immunity to eczema.

- Pay attention to allergies. For examples in some cases, grooming your pet can worsen eczema. Other common allergens are moulds, dust, grass pollens, animal fur, etc.

So, as a conclusion, the most important aspects of keeping eczema away are hygiene, moisture, alimentation and allergies. If you want to keep your infants away of eczema, pay attention to each of these aspects.
