Skin rashes in children, often starting at very early, at the age of three months is truly annoying to parents and the infants. The most common cause is atopic dermatitis, or eczema. The skin is dry; the children start scratching, skin abrasion from scratch leads to infections; bacteria such as Staphylococcus grow on the skin; the body develops an allergic reaction to the products of bacteria, then you get worsening of the condition; you scratch more – the vicious cycle goes on repeating. Food allergy often contributes to worsening of symptoms.

The most important issue to be addressed is adding moisture to skin by repeated application of moisturizing creams (not lotion). Creams such as CeraVe, or petroleum jelly, can be of real help if applied repeatedly and generously. Of course, allergens should be avoided, and infection needs to be aggressively treated.
