How to cure baby eczema with this simple herbal remedy

by Paula

As new parents, we face all sorts of baby emergencies:
* How do you cure baby eczema naturally, without using corticosteroids?

* Does your baby cry because she has colic?

* Do you cry with your toddler when she’s been constipated for more than a couple of days?

At these young ages, and beyond, safe herbs for children like Chamomile, Marigold, Aloe Vera, Echinacea or Peppermint are a must in your "medicine mom" herbal kit.

Do you know what can cause baby eczema?

Whether you are using a natural remedy for baby eczema or another product recommended by your pediatrician, first check these eczema causes:

* Clothing is one of the causes for eczema. Use 100% cotton clothes and bed sheets and make sure you use a non scented detergent when doing laundry.

* Bathe your baby at least once a day using an unscented soap.

* Don’t wear wool clothing or any fabric that could irritate your child’s skin.

* Also check for flowers you have received recently from friends. Babies can be allergic to flower pollen or to any chemical substance. Use natural organic products if possible.

I know that commercial baby oil and baby shampoo are mild versions of the adult ones, but they contain many chemicals that could cause allergies, rashes or eczema.

Here is an herbal remedy for baby eczema I have used with success

My daughter Roxana has got eczema on her cheeks when she was about 5 weeks old. At first I thought it was a simple rash, but in a couple of days more and more redness appeared on her face.

In my mother’s manual I've received from my mother-in-law, at the "baby eczema on face" chapter, I had these 3 natural remedies: Chamomile, Marigold and Aloe Vera.

Chamomile has antiseptic and antibacterial properties, so it is perfect for eczema.

Marigold stimulates blood circulation in the tissues and speeds up healing of the skin.

Aloe Vera gel has a cooling, soothing effect on skin problems and it is also a natural antibiotic.


What I did have at hand and tried successfully was a concentrated infusion from Chamomile and Marigold.

I had handpicked the chamomile and marigold flowers myself a few months before from my mother’s house at the country, so I knew this remedy was 100% natural and organic.

Put 2 teaspoons of Chamomile and Marigold flowers in 1 cup of boiling water and simmer for another 5-10 minutes. Strain and let it cool.

Dab a cotton ball in this infusion and wash your child's face with it. It may take a few days for the redness and itch to disappear.

I was so happy when the eczema healed completely in a little over a week with Chamomile and Marigold infusion. This was a new "medicine mom" chapter in my book :)
