Baby Dove Helping with baby eczema

Stress-free ways to treat baby eczema

The search is over! Here’s our guide to soothing and caring for your baby’s delicate, eczema-prone skin – to bring the smiles back for you both.

So, what causes eczema in babies? Here’s the low-down. 

First things first, baby eczema is common. In fact, up to 20% of children can experience it. Maybe you’ve noticed baby eczema on the face, or baby dry scalp? And while it’s worth checking whether you’ve changed anything in your baby’s routine recently – it may also be something they are genetically predisposed to.

The good news? Baby Dove is here to help. We know that the parenting rollercoaster ride can be challenging enough – so we created our Baby Dove Derma Care range to give your baby’s eczema-prone skin the ultra-gentle care it deserves. 

Our ultra-soothing products were developed with paediatric dermatologists and are accepted by the National Eczema Association.

Start with bath time

Bathing should be fun, not stressful. And with a few simple tricks up your sleeve, it can be a moment of relaxation and bonding for you both.

Make sure the baby bath temperature is not too hot – it should be 37-38 degrees Celsius (which is body temperature). Then, add some Baby Dove Soothing Wash. Uniquely formulated with colloidal oatmeal, 100% skin-natural nutrients and prebiotic moisturizer, it’s clinically-proven to be as gentle as water – and safe to use from baby’s first bath. This tear-free baby wash works to replenish skin-essential nutrients and retain moisture within your baby’s skin, so bath time can finally be fun again.

Try a gentle massage

After bath time, massage a thin layer of Baby Dove Eczema Care Soothing Cream to your baby’s dry skin patches (you’ll mostly notice them on the face and scalp, behind your baby’s ears, or in the creases of the neck, knees and elbows). Warm the soothing cream in your hands first for a lovely, comforting feel. 

Our Baby Dove Eczema Care Soothing Cream can instantly soothe itchy, irritated skin to calm both baby and toddler eczema and is gentle enough to also soothe dry skin on baby’s face. Plus, it’s recommended by 97% of parents to children with infant eczema.

Enriched with colloidal oatmeal, it’s clinically-proven to instantly soothe itchiness and irritation. And for ultra-gentle baby care, both the Soothing Wash and Cream are paraben-free, phthalate-free, sulfate-free, dye-free, fragrance-free and steroid-free.
