Sometimes, lupus can trigger eczema in babies. Home remedies are usually effective. Sometimes, neonatal lupus can be passed from the mother to the infant during pregnancy or the birth process. The mother can pass lupus antibodies to her baby, which can cause lupus illness.
Lupus in infants usually causes a rash, but it is usually gone within six to eight weeks if there aren’t any complications. Lupus is a body attack on itself. Lupus can manifest in two ways. It can cause eczema or attack vital organs.
It is most common in infants. It affects the forehead, cheeks and forearms. Eczema can also be found in older children on the neck, face, and insides of the elbows. About 40% of children with eczema experience significant improvement by the time they turn two years old. It is important to prevent eczema from getting worse by controlling it early.
Itching is a major concern for infants with eczema. Because infants are not able to reason, they don’t know that scratching can cause eczema worsening. Special cotton clothing can be used to cover infants’ hands so they don’t scratch their skin while they sleep. This prevents the eczema from getting worse and spreading.
Eczema sufferers should only wear all-cotton clothing made from soft cotton. Parents of infants with eczema must wash their bedding and clothing with hypoallergenic detergents. The clothing should be washed twice. Dust mites are a common trigger for eczema. Keep your child’s bedroom and play areas clean.
Many parents are unaware that baby eczema can be triggered by food allergies. A recent study found that around 40% of children with eczema had food allergies. Sometimes, the culprit is often Diary. Breastfeeding babies may also be susceptible to food allergies due to substances in their mother’s breast milk. Breastfeeding moms should be especially cautious about what they eat. Baby lotions should not be used on children with eczema. Some lotions contain high levels of water, which can dry out and irritate3 the skin.
Some active ingredients and fragrances in baby lotions can trigger eczema symptoms. Baby lotions should be replaced with creams and ointments made from all-natural ingredients. These products are available at many health food stores. Natural home remedies are often the best way for parents to treat their infant’s eczema symptoms.
