Baby's skin problems: recognising and taking care of them
Nappy rash manifests itself as uncomfortable redness on your baby's bottom. Small spots sometimes appear.
This rash on the bottom is caused by urine and faeces, either because they have been left in the nappy for too long or because of their acidity. This happens because of diarrhoea or loose stools associated with teething.
To relieve irritation, Cicalfate+ Restorative Protective Cream is ideal for repairing and soothing babies' skin. Allowing your baby’s bottom to breathe without a nappy for about ten minutes several times a day will also help your baby to heal and get their soft baby skin back. You can take advantage of this time to soothe them further with the Thermal Spring Water Spray.
Baby eczema-prone skin, is an inflammatory skin condition that occurs in an allergy-prone environment. It affects more than one in ten babies.
The symptoms are dry skin, with red and itchy patches occurring in eczema-prone skin flare-ups. The cheeks, arms and hands are the areas affected in the first months of a baby's life.
The causes are often genetic, although certain dietary and environmental factors can favour its appearance.
Baby eczema-prone skin requires consultation with a paediatrician or dermatologist to ensure proper care. A fragrance-free skincare routine based on emollients then increases the effectiveness of the prescribed products.
Our laboratory has designed the Xeracalm A.D range to soothe, comfort and soften baby’s skin prone to eczema or itching, caused by skin dryness.
The lipid-replenishing cream or the lipid-replenishing balm should be applied once or twice a day to protect and nourish the skin, while the cleansing oil cleanses your baby's skin during bath time.
This should be done with water between 32°C and 35°C and should not be for more than ten minutes. Find out more tips for your baby's daily hygiene.
