Home and Natural Remedies to Prevent Their Children's Eczema Attack.

Eczema is a chronic skin disorder characterized by itching rashes, which may be red, scaly, dry, or leathery. There may be skin blisters with oozing and crusting. 

It affects about 10% to 20% of infants and about 3% of adults and children. Most infants who develop the condition outgrow it by their tenth birthday, while some people continue to have symptoms on and off throughout life. 

Mostly, you can't determine what part of skin will be affected. Sometimes the itching will start before the rash appears, but when it does, the rash most commonly appears on the face, back of the knees, wrists, hands, or feet. It may also affect other areas as well.

Affected areas usually appear very dry, thickened, or scaly. In fair-skinned people, these areas may initially appear reddish and then turn brown. Among darker-skinned people, eczema can affect pigmentation, making the affected area lighter or darker.

In infants, the itchy rash can produce an oozing, crusting condition that happens mainly on the face and scalp, but patches may appear anywhere.
The exact cause of eczema is unknown, but it's thought to be linked to an overactive response by the body's immune system to an irritant. 

In addition, eczema is commonly found in families with a history of other allergies or asthma.
Eczema has no cure at all but in most cases it's manageable and the best possible way to avoid the attack is look for home remedies. 

These few tips from experts had help a lot of moms to prevent their children's eczema attack.

1. Change Your Laundry Detergent
The soap you use to wash your clothes with could be amplifying the burn in your skin. Avoid laundry detergents that use harsh ingredients, and instead choose those that are fragrance-free and neutral pH.

2. Wear Gloves at Night
Rule #1 of eczema prevention is “no scratching”. If the itchy spot is somewhere way too accessible, such as your wrist or the back of your hand, cover it with a small bandage to remind yourself not to scratch. Some people scratch in their sleep, so better wear thin cotton gloves over your hands at night.

3. Take Warm Showers
Use lukewarm water in the tub or shower instead of piping hot water. Keep your baths and showers under 10 minutes. In fact, don’t bathe every day if you don’t have to. Eczema tends to get worse when skin is dry, and excessive bathing washes away the protective oils that keep your skin moist. 

4. Apply Anti-Itch Cream
If you happen to have some hydro-cortisone or calamine lying around, these creams make great home remedies for eczema. Even petroleum jelly or solid vegetable shortening works well. Avoid water-based lotions, as well as lotions that contain fragrance.

5. Keep Cool
Apply a cold compress to the areas of your skin that are affected by eczema. Stay inside air-conditioned buildings as much as you can. Wear clothes that are cool and lightweight to minimize sweating.

6. Apply Olive Oil
Unfortunately, you can’t shed your scaly skin like a snake does, but you can reduce the scales by rubbing olive oil into your skin. Olive oil also has anti-inflammatory properties that could help reduce the redness and itching.

7. Make a Strawberry Paste
If you don’t plan on eating those strawberries in your refrigerator, you can use them to make a great home remedy for eczema. Blend up the strawberries to make a paste and apply it to your eczema. This should reduce pain, redness, and inflammation.

8. Eat Yogurt
Remove pasteurized foods from your diet and switch to dairy free foods. The probiotics that are found in live culture yogurt and kefir can help boost your immune system; making you less likely to break out.

9. Eat foods rich in omega-3s
Foods containing essential omega-3s helps reduce inflammation and allergic reactions. You’ll find these in rich amounts in walnuts, avocados, salmon, mackerel, and tuna.

10. Lessen the caffeine intake
Rather than drinking coffee every morning, opt to water or fresh and green juices. Create easy to make celery, parsley, ginger, and cilantro juices at home.
Follow these healthy tips and remember to take the necessary vitamins and minerals you need for a healthier skin.
