Prevention and Treatment for Eczema

  • Keep skin well moisturized, preferably with organic skin care products to avoid unnecessary irritation.
  • Avoid the main triggers, such as overheating and contact with chemical irritants.
  • Reduce itching by using wet dressings or cool compresses. If scabs develop, remove by bathing in lukewarm water to soften the scabs, and then gently wiping the crusts off with a soft, wet towel.
  • Babies with eczema should be kept away from people with cold sores, as they are susceptible to the cold sore virus.
  • Prevention of an eczema outbreak is preferable to treating one. The key is to avoid chemical based products.
  • Many eczema sufferers say that using organic skin care products in general reduces the frequency and the severity of their outbreaks.
  • The complete Little Innoscents product range is formulated specifically to prevent and treat eczema. Little Innoscents Intensive Soothing Cream is a mother’s favorite product to use on eczema outbreaks.
