What is a Good Natural Treatment for Eczema in Kids?
Managing eczema in kids is no simple feat. Eczema is already a persistent and unpleasant skin disorder. When you add restless little fingers that can’t stop itching, controlling eczema symptoms can feel like an impossible fantasy. To make matters even more complicated, some treatment options don’t sit well with parents. The thought of introducing medication, creams, or ointments containing steroids might not sound like the ideal solution to you.
But what are the alternative options? How can you soothe eczema in kids using natural products only?
The truth is, it’s actually easier than you might think.
Can Natural Treatments Really Manage Eczema in Kids?
Atopic dermatitis affects different individuals in different ways. That’s true for adults, and it’s true for children with eczema.
Your child’s triggers may not be the same as another child’s triggers. The same is true for the way their skin responds to popular natural therapies.
When people think of natural eczema solutions, they tend to think of home remedies. Popular options include coconut oil, aloe vera gel, apple cider vinegar, and sunflower seed oil.
All of these options can soothe the symptoms of eczema in kids. But they’re not likely to provide real, sustainable relief . . . especially not if your child has moderate to severe eczema.
However, this does not mean natural ingredients can’t be a gamechanger. Nature does hold the power to soothe and nourish; you’re just not going to get the full force of that power in a single ingredient.
So what’s the solution?
Delfina Skin: A Natural Oil for Eczema in Kids
If you want to manage your child’s eczema using only natural ingredients, we recommend Delfina Skin Dry Skin Oil.
Rather than simply moisturizing the skin, Delfina penetrates through to nourish the deeper layers. The oil works with your child’s natural physiology to provide lasting relief and enhance skin health.
There are no steroids, no chemicals, no dyes, and no synthetic fragrances.
In many cases, eczema sufferers notice lesions vanishing within two weeks. You can find before and after pictures here.
How Does Delfina Work?
Because Delfina is designed to work with skin physiology and not just moisturize the top layer, it requires fewer applications than many ointments. In fact, this oil is incredibly easy to use.
All it takes is one spritz rubbed into the affected area twice a day for 30 days. After that, the lesions should disappear. In some cases, lesions clear up even sooner. From then on, you only need 4-7 applications each week to maintain your child’s healthy skin.
Additional Options to Manage Eczema Naturally
We have seen miraculous results from people who use Delfina. This formula has made it shockingly easy to maintain healthy skin despite serious challenges, including eczema in kids.
That said, we also believe daily lifestyle choices are an essential part of natural eczema skin care. For a little extra help preventing flares, you might consider:
Many eczema sufferers find that certain foods can trigger flare-ups. But these foods are not always consistent from person to person. There is a bit of a learning curve when it comes to figuring out which foods your child should avoid.
Don’t worry; that doesn’t mean you have to play guessing games with your little one’s diet. Check out this guide to common dietary eczema triggers for a good starting point.
Control Your Child’s Environment
If the air in your home gets a little dry in winter, furnish your child’s room with a humidifier. Dry air makes eczema worse.
As the weather gets warmer, do what you can to keep their room on the cooler side . . . especially at night. Sweaty nights are bad news when it comes to eczema in kids. Make sure they have breathable PJs and bedding.
On that note:
Select Clothing Carefully
Soft, breathable clothes are better for your child’s skin. Avoid materials that cling and trap moisture. Garments that are 100% cotton are a great choice.
Wet Wrap Therapy
Wet wrap therapy can provide great relief from serious pain or itch, but check with your pediatrician before you try it.
The process is simple. Moisten gauze or white cotton cloth in warm water, then wrap the dressing around the flared area. You then wrap a dry gauze or cloth over the damp on. Leave the wraps on for several hours. You can even do this before bedtime.
A colloidal oatmeal bath can provide immediate relief for eczema in kids. Just be sure you follow the instructions on the package or consult your pediatrician. In most cases, you don’t want your child to soak for more than 10 minutes, as too much soaking can dry the skin.
Whenever possible, natural is best for managing eczema in kids. If you feel like you’re running out of options, don’t lose heart. You’ll find the right lifestyle balance to care for your child, and we at Delfina are here to help.
