Eczema – what is it?
Eczema is a skin irritation that appears as patches of dry, red, scaly skin, which may become moist. It most often appears on baby’s face, behind the ears, around their neck, behind their knees and on the inside of elbows
The causes are unknown, but it can run in families and may be linked with other allergic diseases.
Avoid soaps and bath lotions — use sorbolene and glycerine lotion instead of soap at bathtime and at nappy changes.
