Ways to Calm Eczema Symptoms in Babies

Calm Eczema Symptoms in Babies

Are you a parent of a child with eczema? It’s pretty heartbreaking if you ask me. The skin is rough, dry, and cracked. When my kids get eczema, I want to do everything I can to help make it go away. Here are some ways we’ve dealt with eczema symptoms in babies:

Changing Your Baby’s Diet

Sometimes when it comes down to eczema, the baby’s diet could be a reason. Sometimes a lot of dairy can cause eczema. By simply eliminating dairy or whatever other food is the culprit, your baby can experience some mild relief from their dry and rough skin.

Increasing Probiotics

When it comes down to probiotics helping with your baby’s eczema, you may wonder HOW this can work. Well, probiotics are the “good bacteria” in your body. Somehow getting that good bacteria built up in your baby’s body can help ward off the itchiness and inflammation. 

Oatmeal Baths

My kids have always loved this cur for eczema. While oatmeal doesn’t always take the eczema symptoms away, it does help relieve the symptoms. By placing oatmeal in warm bath water, your baby will experience some relief.


This is a favorite way to help cure eczema symptoms in babies around here. I have personally used the emmollient cream (kids) and the infant facial cream from Nutratopic on our kids. I’ve noticed that both creams have helped control the eczema symptoms and break the cycle. But don’t take my word for it, take a look at these before and after shots. The results are astounding.

The Nutratopic cream also really hydrates the skin, which restores barrier function, reinforcing the lipid mantle though the use of ceramides, omega-6, and L-isoleucine. I have also personally noticed my kids are itching a lot less and that Nutratopic also helps inhibits the risk of bacterial adhesion. Their skin is clear and smooth, for the first time in a long time.

Dealing with eczema has changed in our household. While we can’t always prevent eczema, there are ways to help control it and in some cases, cure it. Thankfully, a mixture of the aforementioned tips and our eczema is under control. If you seem to be dealing with a lot of eczema symptoms in your baby, give these tips a try!
