What is eczema in babies?
Eczema in babies most commonly develops between two and six months and often before the age of five. In babies, eczema usually starts on the cheeks and scalp, and can then spread to other areas such as the inner legs, arms and chest.
Skin with eczema may be dry, red, thickened, cracked, itchy or even broken and is worsened by babies or young children scratching and irritating the problem areas.
My two year old daughter has suffered with severe eczema for the last 8 months, leaving her raw, sore and very very grumpy.
We saw 4 different doctors who all suggested we use different creams and drugs, but nothing worked. At my wits end and feeling like a terrible Mother as I could not soothe my childs itchy skin, my friend recommended I try your soap. (Deep Cleansing Therapy Bar)
Within 6 weeks her skin has cleared up, the sores are gone and the itching is under control. I can’t believe the difference in my little girl, who now sleeps all night and is a happy, healthy child again.
THANK YOU !!
