Cure Eczema in Babies Naturally – The Homeopathic Way

When I think of babies the first thing that comes to my mind is their skin. It is so soft, smooth and so supple, that I can’t help but cuddle them endlessly. However, most kids get eczema at one point or another, causing their skin to break out in to itchy, red patches.

The commonest type of eczema seen in children is atopic dermatitis or infantile eczema. It occurs because of over-sensitivity to allergens in the environment such as pollens, moulds, dust, animal dander, and certain foods. Ask mothers whose babies suffer from eczema and they are sure to make you count the sleepless nights they’ve spent trying to quieten their irritable, itchy babies.

Eczema in babies looks like small round patches of red skin, dry and itchy. While it may appear just about anywhere on the body, is usually appears first on the cheeks, then spreading to forhead, scalp, bends of elbows and knees.
