1- Bathe your child in warm – not hot – water.
2- Limit your child’s time in the bath to 5 or 10 minutes.
3- Use cleanser only when needed and make sure the cleanser is mild and fragrance-free. Do not use bubble bath.
4- If your child’s eczema is frequently infected, a weekly bleach baths may be beneficial. Discuss this option with your child’s dermatologist and/or peditrician.
5- If your child has medicine that you apply to the skin, apply medicine when your child’s skin is almost dry and use the medicine as directed.
6- Apply moisturizer on top of the medicine and to the rest of your child’s skin. Try to keep your child's skin moisturized to prevent redness and irritation.
