i've tried few lotions namely ezerra, buds but the result was not satisfying. currently we only use olive oil and pot of gold to ensure the skin not dry. as for baby bath we use Eubos.

Baby Eczema
Baby Sebamed , 13 May 2009
Atopic eczema is a very common problem amongst children and babies affecting around 1 in 5 children.  It is characterized by dry, flaky skin that is very itchy and in its acute form the skin becomes reddened, scaly and in some areas the skin may be wet and weepy.  In babies, the face and scalp are most commonly affected.  As they get older, it spreads to involve the body and limbs, with the limb creases – backs, wrists, ankle and neck, and the front of the elbows being the most commonly affected sites.

The causes of eczema are not 100% known and in 10% of cases the conditions may be due to allergy  to certain food groups (citrus,soybeans, fish, nuts, wheat, eggs peanuts and milk protein), to dust mites, feather pollens etc.  Addressing your child’s diet must be done with caution as you need to be careful to get a balanced diet. The tendency towards eczema is often hereditary but environmental factors often play an important role.  The good news is that by age 36 months the incidence is halved and about 70% of children will completely outgrow this condition by their teens.  It is a condition that is chronic and needs to be managed in the long run, as there are intermittent flare-ups every few weeks.  Research has shown that basic changes in the use of soap free products and the use of emollients are critical in reducing the incidence and managing the side effects of eczema.

Managing the side-effects of eczema in babies is particularly important as babies cannot control the urge to scratch, often resulting in bacterial infections, bleeding and major discomfort.  Scratching not only disturbs baby’s sleep but can worsen the itch and cause further inflammation. With older children you run the risk of concentration problems at school.

How can eczema be controlled?

The good news is that this condition can be managed and although there is no cure, it can be treated so as alleviate the symptoms of eczema.  New research is now showing that conditions such as atopic eczema, neuro dermatits and psoriasis can only show long term positive results if the skin is treated with pH 5,5!

Keep baby skin healthy by using pH 5,5 balanced products and make sure that the skin is well hydrated with products that contain high quality moisturizing agents such as Chamomile, Panthenol and Allantoin!

Baby skin is virtually sterile at birth and it is very important that the skin is treated gently and is supported to build a healthy pH 5,5 acid mantle.  Water and soap is not the best combination for sensitive skin!  PH 5,5 balanced soap substitutes, bath oils and moisturizers help to keep the skin smooth and well hydrated.  In colder climates and for very dry skin use a “thicker” cream (in warmer climates a lotion will suffice). Apply creams and moisturizers in between baths if skin is very dry. Pat baby dry and apply moisturizers.  For an infected scalp use a mild pH balanced Shampoo and do not try to remove scabs. Only use cotton textiles on baby and in extreme cases dress baby in silver coated textiles. Do remember that a new born does not need to bath more than 3-4 times a week and while your baby is still tiny you should use a separate wash basin for his face.

Also avoid hot baths, detergents, latex, rubber and fabric softeners.  Keep the bedroom temperature cool and in very dry climates use a humidifier.

Baby Sebamed

The Baby Sebamed range has been specifically developed and tested to meet the needs of your baby’s skin in cooperation with dermatological and children’s clinics.  Each product in the range has been created using the experience of Paediatricians and Dermatologists.
now i have to admit, that sebamed is a much better product than the organic stuff sold. organic is some fake shit claim whereby m'sia doesnt have any regulations pertaining to how or what organic is before u can claim it. most of the chemicals in your cleansers are just chemicals. add a bit of extract say a drop of chamomile and u'd have 99% surfactents and 1% organic perfume and therefore u can claim organic and profit ?

We have been battling bad eczema on my son's cheeks since he was around 4 months old (hes 14months now). I had allergies in the form of eczema when i was a baby as well so i wasn't surprised when it showed up on him, although his is much worse.

I am quite strongly against using steroids on him at such a young age (generally a doctor here will prescribe some kind of corticosteroid cream). Sterioid creams usually do improve eczema quickly... however using them long Term especially in infants can have some nasty side effects so it is important to be able to manage the eczema without steroids in the long term. I use the steroid cream only when his skin is very very bad and only until it is improved enough that i know i can manage it naturally.

At the moment we use MooGoo (the ISB and MSM are the most useful to us, but full cream is also useful to have around so we generally get an eczema starter pack and top up with the ISB/MSM combo until the shower milk runs out).
I love the smell of the buds rescue cream and always have some around. It seems to help sooth his skin when it is really itchy but doesn't seem to add much moisture.
I also always have a tub of sudocrem (originally for disper rash) around which works well to protect his skin under his chin from dribble and sweat which irritates his skin. Sudocrem Is also good at locking in the moisture added by one of the other creams.
I have also tried california baby calendula cream (helps with dryness when his eczema is mild but seems to irritate his skin when it is red and itchy), ezzera (reduces dryness quite well but doesn't sooth irritated skin), cetaphil lotion/shower gel (useless for us, the shower gel is disgusting and the lotion is too thin to moisturize well before he rubs it off), shea butter (adds nice moisture and seems mildly soothing but takes a long time to soak in so a bit hard to use on an infant). I have tried a couple of others as well but can't remember them now.

One of the most important things when dealing with eczema is to try and find what triggers it. Although there are many different triggers and it is different for everyone the common ones are: cows milk, dust, animal hair/saliva, cigarette smoke, detergents, soaps, fragrance (as in perfumes and some shower products), egg whites and pollution. Obviously it is impossible to totally eliminate things like pollution and dust, but you can try to minimize exposure to reduce symptoms (eczema) if they turn out to be a trigger.
To help identify triggers it is sometimes useful to keep a diary of what your child ate/where he went/new things he came in contact with as well as anytime you notice a flare up, that way you can see if there is any common factor leading up to a flare up (eg. He always ate strawberries and was itchy within an hour). By identifying triggers and avoiding them as much as possible you will make the eczema much easier to control until he (hopefully) grows out of it like most children do (as they age it usually at least gets much more minor and easy to control).
Also try to keep him at a stable temperature, going between hot, sunny outdoors and cold ac rooms really stresses sensitive skin. With all the rain at the moment it isn't so bad but when it is a really hot day my sons face is instantly worse, especially if we have been in a very cold room.

When my mum was treating my eczema (in the uk) she used E45 cream which i have used my whole life if i ever feel my skin is a little dry (Nivea E45 is the one i had) but i haven't been able to find any in Malaysia. Alternatively Aqueous cream is often prescribed in Uk for eczema especially in infants but i can't find that here either!

Also here is a list of all the remidies i have been told to try (i own a shop and my son comes to work with me, as his eczema is on his face and can get quite bad pretty much everyone who comes in asks us whats wrong, then asks if we have been applying anything and then tells us what they would use):
aloe vera, chamomile, rice water (as in the milky colored water you have cleaned rice in), diamond filtered water (as in the white box the makes drinking water, not water filtered through actual diamonds), tea bags, green tea, buttermilk, 'blend of herbs', breast milk, crocodile meat (to eat, not apply on his face), cucumber, [insert a few other random common household things that have slipped my mind right now], but the weirdest one i have heard so far (although if you can bear to do it, does seem to have both scientific merit and plenty of success stories is to let him pee on a cloth and then mop the eczema (in our case his face!) with it...

Hope that helps. I know it is a lot to take in and eczema can seem like such a pain (for my son it really effects everything from sleep to eating as he wakes himself up scratching and can't settle himself so i still get up a few times a night and eating certain things like tomato pasta sauce or oranges will sting) but just remember that it will get better and you aren't alone. Try one thing at a time and figure out what works best for you (everyone is different and what helps one persons eczema may have no effect on someone elses), enjoy the good times and don't worry too much about the bad.

Oh also, if he is scratching a lot, mittens are good and keeping his nails short is a must. Also keep him well hydrated (if you breast feed, drink lots of water yourself to hydrate him that way, otherwise offer him water often) as well hydrated skin is less prone to flareups and hey will be less severe.

I think that is all i can think of for now. I really hope your babys eczema is not and will never be as bad as ours is. Hope you find a management routine that works well for you soon. If you ever need any advice or help or just someone who understands how depressing and frustrating it is to hear "whats wrong with your baby? Don't you apply any cream?" for the hundredth time, give me a shout smile.gif

Just so you know, most of the "organic fake shit" are from either Australia or USA where there are regulations on what can be called organic. Both buds and moogoo are regulated by Australian authorities and are very good products that help thousands of people manage their eczema... smile.gif

My baby had eczema on his face when he was 2-3 months old. I think its due to hygiene...as after i change the caretaker, now my mom taking care. she uses warm water and clean cloth to wipe my bb's mouth and hands every 3-4hourly. Now the redness hardly comes back.

Also the temperature of the water. Too warm might cause eczema as well as it is irritating the skin. last time my bb use to become red all over and also having red patched and spots over body after bath. after changing the temperature, it never happens anymore.

Also can try switch milk cos sometimes it might cause by the milk. my mom claimed there are not many eczema in old days (my family very big so there were many bb around)...but recently many ppl having this problem with bb (my friends and classmates bb)...maybe due to fm...

Anyway. try moogoo. it works well!

When my son was less than 9months, I used Ezerra and it went well until it gets hard to cure.

After that, I switched to adult one like Tolnaftate + Hydrocortisone and works like charm. Apply a tiny layer before going to sleep and by next morning all gone. I'm not recommending them but it depends on your own situation. I would rather see him actively playing than scratching. Sometimes scratch until bleed.

Also keep him well hydrated (if you breast feed, drink lots of water yourself to hydrate him that way, otherwise offer him water often) as well hydrated skin is less prone to flareups and hey will be less severe.

I think that is all i can think of for now. I really hope your babys eczema is not and will never be as bad as ours is. Hope you find a management routine that works well for you soon. If you ever need any advice or help or just someone who understands how depressing and frustrating it is to hear "whats wrong with your baby? Don't you apply any cream?" for the hundredth time, give me a shout smile.gif

Just so you know, most of the "organic fake shit" are from either Australia or USA where there are regulations on what can be called organic. Both buds and moogoo are regulated by Australian authorities and are very good products that help thousands of people manage their eczema... smile.gif

nice. there are 9 bodies in australia that can award that title.

QUOTE
In Australia, the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS) is the controlling body for organic export certification. As of 2012, there are seven AQIS-approved certifying organisations, they are AUS-QUAL Limited, Australian Certified Organic, Bio-Dynamic Research Institute, NASAA Certified Organic, Organic Food Chain, Safe Food Productions Queensland, Tasmanian Organic-dynamic Producers these organisations are authorised to issue Organic Produce Certificates on behalf of AQIS.

There are two certification bodies that work domestically and are not controlled by AQIS. These are Organic Growers of Australia who is accredited by the International Organic Accreditation Service and Australia's largest certification body SAI Global who is accredited by JASANZ. SAI Global certifies to the Australian Standard for Organic and Biodynamic Products (AS 6000).



sos: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Organic_certification

each certifying body has a different regulation from another. some are more relaxed, some are strict.


There isnt a proper standard defining what can or cannot be labelled organic. each certifying body has its own set of pre-definitions on what can be labelled as organic or not. some can say 95% of raw materials must be organic before u can label it as organic. so therefore u are left with 5 % of chemicals. how users perceive that, is entire individual.

smart ones in chemistry dealing in personal care range, will ignore the organic claim, as it will still contain SLES or SES.
i also perceive the fact that anything containing preservatives should never be labelled as organic but i'm not a certifying body. Yet all of our organic shampoo's and shower gels must contain some form of preservative. whether paraben based, or phenoxyethanol based, or mixtures of K series. to me, those chemicals will always be a non substandard item but a necessity to de-bacterialize the product. even binding agents are needed as water can never mix with oil.

hey but like i said, its an end users perception. if u're in the personal care range industry, u'd know that organic is just a claim. no personal care range such as shampoo or shower gel or even moisturizers are free from chemical and derived 100% out of organic stuffs.

if u want to learn more, i'd be more than happy to share my views with you.

I'm fully aware of all of this. I was objecting to you saying that all Organic products in malaysia are totally unregulated and therefore are not worth buying which isn't true at all.

Adding a couple of home remides since my last post: green tea left to brew overnight, small amount of bleach in bath.

keep wondering. i myself also wondering still. BBFK wants nothing to do with this. therefore malaysia has no regulations on this matter yet. maybe next time who knows.

nothing to certify, no claims, no procedures . haih. malaysia boleh.

Hi, do not take babies to sauna. They are are not able to take the heat in the room.. But anyway, if you ever try, they would have screamed their lungs out... natural defence mechanism..... rclxms.gif

Hi.. how old is your girl?? how severe is the eczema? does it look inflamed?? cos if its raw and inflammed?? that would hurt your baby when applied the cream. What cream are you using?? you have to apply lots of moisturising cream.. regularly.

Dear fellow parents,

Please try Marine Elements. It's safe for both babies and adults. It does not contain Steroids, No Parabens and it is dermatologically tested. It uses the patented ingredient Zonase X to help improve the appearance of dry, itchy, inflamed skin conditions.

Zonase X is an active ingredient containing natural proteins and enzymes derived from pure and clean marine sources in Norway. It is derived from the hatching fluid of salmon eggs that have been extensively researched and developed in coorperation with Norwegian Universities.

It is the latest innovation combining marine technology and skincare science. It is scientifically proven to help improve skin conditions, including regenerating fresh skin cells and strengthening the skin's natural barrier, therefore reducing the recurrence of eczema and dry skin conditions.

Marine Elements product range is specially formulated to moisturize, calm and smoothen the skin. The products are hypoallergenic and suitable for people of all ages, including babies, children and people with sensitive skins.

Here's a testimony to share:

"My daughter suffers from eczema. I have been looking for an alternative cream without steroids for many years and finally discovered Marine Elements. The Intensive Cream works really well on my daughter as it prevented further breakouts and itch. She says the cream is not oily and heavy, and absorbs very well into her skin. My daughter has also tried the Body Wash and found it to be very good as it does not dry or sting her skin like other body washes do."
- Aileen Lim, Malaysia


Marine Elements are made and developed in Europe, and has just recently arrived in Malaysia. You can find it in www.plincco.com

Came across a few articles that organic clothing helps...'cos organic cotton and bamboo are grown without harmful chemicals and the dyes used in production are non-toxic. So, it's gentle on children's sensitive skin. Organic clothing are quite common these days and easy to find. You might want to try for your child.

In addition to the creams that you put on your child's skin, avoid taking bath with the heater. Just use the water that runs directly from the tap aka cold water.

I know about this product called SkinCerity - it is like a liquid band-aid and it prevents trans epidermal water loss (moisture loss). I understand it stops the itching immediately upon contact and it does not thin the skin (like cortison). It does have vitamin E and grapeseed oil in it. If you want more information, please let me know. Thanks

Would like to contribute 2 cents here. My daughter have some heat rash all over her face which look like eczema when it getting serious. I was so worried and started to look for info before trace back to here. I followed the advise of some to use the organic bath/lotions. I bought the moogoo starter pack in hope it will helps. The lotion does work at certain point but not as effective as the medicine given by the pediatric doctor which we consult at the same time. Just in case someone have similar case like me, please consult specialist first and don go for GP doctor or those abc xyz lotions. Some may say "i have consult multiple specialist but still the same". I would say that just you and your baby not yet found the right doctor who can prescribe the right medicine. We was given some cream and some sort of liquid to wash over the rash (purple colour). Over night it all gone. The lotions is working but in mild and very gentle way which is good but if you consider the baby keep on scratch her face then you will know the lotion work not fast in enough. Hope this help abit.

Buds Organic Infant cream work wonder for my son's eczema, they do have Buds Eczema care series too. Other than that, it's advisable to rub your lo face every time after feeding with a warm handkerchief. Keep your lo's skin clean and dry. Apply cream/virgin coconut oil (VC0) after every rub.

You can visit my store for Buds Eczema care series/VCO product.

It may be better to bring your baby to see a paediatrician / child specialist doctor rather than trying to self-medicate. My baby's paediatrician prescribed some cream to apply and after a while the problem went away. The paediatrician also advised to use moisturizer at the same time as the cream and prescribed the moisturizer as well, which we cannot find from pharmacies.

Sometimes, we may also not know what exactly the issue is, whether it is eczema or some other skin disorder. The doctor can diagnose and tell you what is the best solution. And you can also ask for suggestions from the doctor as to what other products can be used. Usage of other products may aggravate the problem.

Just to share, my child has eczema since 1 yr old. She often scratch till bleeding and she can't sleep well because of the itchiness. The pediatric always give us steroid cream and antihistamine, but it doesn't work anymore. We tried every single cream in the pharmacy. They never work.

We ended up going to Taipei TCM Medical Centre at Kepong, although I usually don't believe in chinese medicine. The medicine cost us a bomb around rm300, which include something to bath, a cream and a supplement. But the effect was instantaneous. Her red rashes just gone the next day. After a few months, the rashes came back again and we repeat the whole ordeal again. I'm hoping she will outgrow it soon, or else I might just go bankrupt.

A combination of DIY shea butter + virgin coconut oil + argan oil + blended raw cucumber + red tomato should take care of the issue. The above don't cost rm300+ but it will keep it in check.
