Managing Your Child’s Eczema In The Winter

Managing Your Child’s Eczema In The Winter

The beginning of winter reminds us that the holidays and the festivities are fast approaching. People claim that the winter weatheris filled with love and fun, but it is really cold and dry. Ideally, this weather is not the best for our skin because it can have adverse effects. It makes the skin super dryand even worsens existing skin conditions.

Skin conditions like eczema can worsen in the winter, so you need to put in extra effort when taking care of eczema -especially when the patient is a child.While certain factors like allergies, asthma, or pet dander can trigger an eczema flare-up. It becomes more difficult to manage in the winter because of extreme temperatures.

In this article, we will explain how to care for your child’s eczema in the winter. This post will serve as your guide this winter. You won’t be having any extreme flare-ups this time if you follow this guide.

1. Bath Your Child With Warm Water

This includes bathing water and the house temperature as well. As we said earlier, extreme temperatures can cause eczema to flare up and become worse. Hot water can rid the skin of all its moisture, and you need your child’s skin to be moisturized at all times. So make sure your child’s bath water is warm instead.

2. Control The Heat Inside The House

The cold outside might tempt you to turn up the thermostat so that the house can feel warm. While this can feel nice, you should be mindful of how hot you make the place. In the winter, the cold and the heat can be your baby’s enemy.

When the temperature is too hot, it can irritate your baby's skin and make them itchier. You want to discourage your child from sitting close to direct heat sources as they can cause their skin to dry and become more irritable. It’ll be a wise decision to get a humidifier in the winter, especially for your child's room.

3. Double-Up On The Moisture

It would be best to double up on moisture more, especially in the winter, because the winter weather zaps all the moisture out of the skin. The skin should never be so dry, especially for a child with eczema. Immediately after a shower, you should apply a moisturizing lotion or an emollient on your child's skin before any eczema treatments.

4. Dress Your Child For Comfort

In the winter, you have to dress your child in breathable fabrics, like wool and cotton. Synthetic materials likepolyester can cause skin irritations because of heat and eczema. You might want to add extra layers because of the cold but do it mindfully. If it is too hot, it can cause eczema to flare up.


Be sure to follow the treatment routine strictly. The winter is not a time to be lenient with your child’s eczema treatments. Follow the routine religiously so that you can achieve better results in a shorter time. Combine these tips with your child's eczema treatment this winter, and you'll be thankful.
