Eczema (atopic dermatitis)
Patches of dry, rough, scratchy skin are typically eczema, often found on torso, arms and legs. Most babies will outgrow eczema. If the irritated skin begins to ooze and crust over, it’s time to see baby’s healthcare provider. You can help prevent eczema by bathing baby no more often than every 2-3 days, and keep bath times short to prevent cleansers from drying baby’s skin. Always pat baby’s skin dry—never rub. Use baby-specific ointments and lotions to moisturize baby’s skin. See baby’s healthcare provider if eczema bother’s baby or if it spreads or emerges in new areas.
