Tips For Managing Sensitive Skin In Babies.

Has your baby got sensitive skin? I have come across a lot of mothers that have babies with sensitive skin and do not have any idea of how to handle it. Hope this tips will a lot of mothers.

Babies with sensitive skin tend to break out with rashes very often, they also have dry, itchy skin and might seem to cry often; babies with more ..e severe forms of skin sensitivity might experience drying out, especially around the joint areas. There are simple tips to help enhance your baby's comfort, while you patiently wait for them to outgrow it, because they most likely will.

Avoid medicated powders - they are usually too harsh for the skin. Powders generally can encourage drying out of the skin and itching.

Use fragrance free products e:g fragrance free jellies, wipes, etc. they are milder to the skin.

Use mild soaps and moisturizers (eg Cetaphil, E45, Oilatum, Aveeno, Sebamed).

Try lactose free formula (lactose can predispose to sensitive skin), check the labels of supplements and food they eat (some may contain potential allergens e.g. oil from nuts etc. - Abidec, contains arachis oil and might enhance sensitivity).

Dress your baby in cotton clothes - they are more comfortable;

Watch your baby's bathing routine - bath with warm water, you could add bath oils that are emollients, apply moisturizers on damp skin to enhance absorption.

Try not to use these tube skin creams, they may appear to get the job done, but they merely suppress the rashes, which will still show up again - these creams contain steroids which aren't too advisable for children, unless the use is being monitored by a health personnel.
Share your experience and ideas that will help mothers.
