Does Your Baby Have Sensitive Skin?

It’s not uncommon for babies, who have sensitive skin, to have a reaction to certain cleansers, moisturizers, and laundry detergents, which contain potentially irritating chemicals.

 

When skin reaction appears, it looks like a red rash or skin irritation, especially after your baby is bathed, has lotion applied, or simple when wears just-laundered clothes.

 

You can try switching the lotion or detergent to a different brand, particularly one that is fragrance-free.

 

When using new lotions, apply a small amount to your baby’s skin and wait a few minutes to see if there’s a reaction.

 

Make sure to use a mild detergent to wash the clothes of everyone in the household, as well as linens or anything that may come in direct contact with your baby’s skin.

 

Sometimes an allergy may take a while to appear, so even if you don’t see a reaction to lotions or detergents on your baby’s skin right away, keep an eye on his skin over the few days.
