Specializes in Pediatric Allergy and Asthma

Dry skin patches may be associated with eczema. Some infants out grow the condition by the age of 2 years. Skin care includes moisturizer for baby eczema several times per day and avoid over immersion in water. Discuss the use of a low dose steroid cream with your pediatrician.
